We have achieved an enormous amount over a relatively
short period of time. Our Environmental Management System, which
was implemented with a great deal of support from Cben, has provided
us with a framework and the direction required in order to implement
and action our environmental objectives. There are many small changes,
for example, installing hippos into cisterns and providing plastic
re-cycling which will continue to impact in the long term as well
as larger projects such as the installation of the biomass boiler
and the purchase of an on site incinerator which impact in the
short term and for the future.
Specific benefits as a result of environmental
practice (for the year ending May 2008) include the following:-
We have reduced our consumption of utilities
- Electricity 51,000kw
- LPG 42500ltr
- Water 3000m³
We have also diverted 92.5tonnes of waste form
landfill, this has either been recycled or donated to local charities
such as Impact Housing.
Our efforts to manage our environmental impact
have not gone unnoticed by outside organisations.
