Water at Work Ltd, a member of the BWCA, introduced an energy saving initiative to help reduce the carbon footprint of the business.
The use of insulation in the building and energy-saving light bulbs was introduced, not to save costs, but to make the company more environmentally-friendly and the changes have created a warmer working environment with no noticeable change to heating costs.
“We have the opportunity as Owners and Directors to either support our planet or ignore its cries for help,” says Tanya Cornford, the MD. “If we all, in every small way, try to operate in an environmentally positive manner then there will be exponential benefits.”
The company also continuously reviews driver routes and ensures economic deliveries by checking in advance with customers how much water they need. Carrying just the right load means there is no surplus fuel used in the carriage of unwanted product.
The team has also given much in in the way of personal energy to good causes. The company supports WaterAid and Lincolnshire Air Ambulance whilst Tanya, Ruth Egerton and Sue Hart from the team undertook The Moon Walk for Breast Cancer.
The company also supports local community projects by supplying water to events, such as the Bingham Health Campaign (pictured).
