Sterling Harrington are committed to responsible energy management and to achieving continual improvement in energy performance. Sterling Harrington recognises that climate change is emerging as one of the most serious environmental challenges currently threatening the global community.
We understand that there is a need to minimise Greenhouse gas emissions produced as a result of fossil fuel consumption and we acknowledge that we have a role to play in tackling these issues.
We have examined internal and external energy issues and identified the areas of our business activities, products and services which consume energy. We are committed to responsibly managing these aspects of our business to assist with global efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and protect the environment from harm.
We have set objectives and targets within a programme for continual improvement and are committed to ensuring the availability of information and of necessary resources to achieve objectives and targets. We monitor and measure our carbon footprint through meaningful key performance indicators, regularly reviewing this progress against our stated objectives.
We will continue to promote energy and carbon reduction methodologies in construction and support the purchase of energy-efficient products and services. In addition we will influence others within the Contract Team to apply energy efficient principles and deliver improved energy performance where they have control or influence.
We will ensure compliance with all applicable legislative and other requirements which relate to the Company’s energy use, consumption and efficiency.
