Environmental policy – Edgars Water

It is the policy of Edgars Water to implement as many solutions as possible to minimise the impact of its activities on the environment, working to a system of continuous improvement.

The key points of the strategy to achieve this are:

  • Minimise waste by evaluating efficiency of all operations.
  • Minimise toxic emissions by selecting suitable fleet and it’s power source.
  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers.
  • Actively promote the use of environmentally friendly options for travel to workSource and promote a product range to minimise the environmental impact of distribution.
  • Meet or exceed all the environmental legislation that relates to the Company.

Initiatives implemented to date are:

  • Introduction of new fleet vehicles with ‘Euro engine’ to reduce high emissions
  • Fleet vehicle 12 weekly checks to ensure optimum efficiency performance
  • 27% fuel consumption reduction by effectively managing delivery routes and loads
  • Installation of speed limiters, restricting all fleet vehicles above 3.5 tonnes to 56 mph therefore reducing emissions
  • Provision of recycling facilities in the offices for paper, plastic and cans
  • Cup recycling scheme available to customers
  • Use of re-usable polycarbonate bottles which are subject to controlled recycling at the end of their estimated life span of 5 – 6 years.
  • We do not produce or sell ‘throw away’ plastic bottles which end up in landfill sites.
  • Paperless technology & invoicing
  • Installation of Cardboard Baling & recycling
