Group HES boosts green focus

10 April, 2017

Group HES, the Gloucester-based hydraulic engineering company, reports that it is committed to all its stakeholders – and that includes the environment.

The employee-led ‘Group Green’ is a group that looks at all ways to adjust practices and procedures to protect the environment, and it was decided that electric vehicles should be the next big project.

Two of the Senior Management team now have electric company vehicles, with the plan for all the team to have them as and when they are due to be replaced. Another long-serving employee also has an electric private vehicle as well.

In mid-February 2017, two electric vehicle charging points were installed at the Group HES head office in Gloucester so staff can charge their vehicles up while they are at work.

Record market share

Travel is a necessary aspect of running a business, but Group HES is doing what it can to reduce the negative effects that car travel has on the environment. The Guardian reported in February that the number of new cars registered in the UK hit a 12-year high in January 2017 and that electric vehicles had taken a record share of the market, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

The Green Group has introduced many environmentally friendly changes to the Group HES workplace and practices; including solar panels being installed on the roof of the building, motion controlled lights to reduce energy consumption, extensive recycling and strict waste disposal procedures.

If you have any questions about the electric vehicle charging points or general questions for the company regarding the environment, contact the team by emailing enquiries@grouphes.com or calling 01452 730 774.
