PertBruce is firmly committed to working sustainably. One of the first steps in our environmental policy is to cut down on our carbon emission and to do that we have slowly introduced electrical vehicles for our staff and have installed charging points for them.
We maintain a high level of commitment to sound environmental policies throughout the business.
We only buy our timber from FSC or PEFC approved suppliers. When ordered, we stipulate that at least 70% of the timber to be supplied must be from sustainable sources.
We will aim to reduce packaging by good procurement, and by entering into discussions with manufacturers and suppliers with a view to reducing packaging wherever possible and to encourage the use of recyclable packaging.
We operate a policy of minimising the production of wastage through mindful purchasing of materials and using reusable and recyclable materials wherever we can. We’re certified by SEPA for the carrying of waste, and our Site Manager oversees waste management on a day to day basis to ensure that our company procedures are followed. This includes everything from the storage of waste to recycling materials with the aim to minimise the waste we produce.
Our team are expected to follow these procedures and cooperate with management in the goal to reduce our impact on the environment. These efforts have been recognised with our ISO 14001 accreditation.
PertBruce is committed to evolving its environmental policy in order to support the Scottish governments target of net-zero greenhouse gas emission by 2045.
