Electrical Estimates are an Electrical Contracting, ICT & Energy Assessing Organisation based in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion and Servicing Clients throughout Mid Wales. Our principle business incorporates Commercial and Industrial Electrical Installation, CommsScope Data Installers, Energy Assessing & Certification, Testing, CCTV and Data Cabling Installers, Fire Alarm Systems, Automated Doors and Barriers.
Our Key areas in terms of environmental impact are energy consumption and waste generation and, though small, we endeavour to minimise these where feasible, by providing clear policy to our colleagues and suppliers on waste management and recycling mission statements.
Duty of Care – Our Environmental Management:
We ensure we keep up to date and are legally compliant with environmental and other relevant legislation. We utilise external Auditors to support our compliance and receive monthly register updates for BS8555 environmental accreditation. In 2017 we are working towards Phase 3.
We perform and manage Site Waste Management Plan for all Main Contracts and CDM 2015 duties.
We are committed to pollution prevention – within the community we serve and we encourage route planning and vehicle sharing, with our colleagues to minimise emissions.
We have planned our continual improvements to our environmental performance – and have completed an environmental review of our entire business in 2010 through to 2015 with an external consultant.
Fuel costs are monitored for our vehicles via vehicle tracking and fuel consumption systems on board each vehicle and materials and products are sourced locally within Ceredigion to avoid long distance collections. We minimise the use of resources by installing low energy lighting and microwave sensors in our office. We have an energy performance certificate for our building and have made improvements from the recommendations report.
We continue to work towards reducing our stationary consumption by doing business with our customers through email and our website. We have provided facilities and training for our employees to recycle our office waste and waste materials from sites to a recognised licensed waste facility CB Environmental. Through Pre-qualification processes with subcontractors and suppliers we partner with suppliers that hold WEEE and have Environmental policies and procedures. We hold a waste carrier licence. We encourage and welcome feedback on our environmental performance from interested parties. We communicate this policy to our employees and persons working on our behalf and make it publicly available to our clients and prospective new partners. This policy will be reviewed no less often than annually and updated as necessary.
