Targets:

To archive our targets we have set ourselves the following:

 

  • Inform all our customers and suppliers about our environmental policy by end of September 2013
  • Establish current spend per vehicle on a monthly basis by end August 2013 and issue results and targets for company vehicle drivers by end of September 2013
  • To change to a paperless invoicing, eliminating all associated stationary and postage costs.

Progress on these objectives to be monitored and communicated to all involved through briefing and through involvement at all levels of the work force.
