Colas recognise the importance of operating in an environmentally sustainable manner to ensure we fulfil our responsibilities to our current stakeholders and future generations.
We implement this commitment through a robust Environmental Management System to achieve legislative compliance and minimise the impact of our operations in all that we do. Through training and development we ensure our people are aware of the environment they work in and the responsibilities they have to protect our natural resources and minimise disruption to those affected by our activities.
We drive improvement through comprehensive performance monitoring to minimise waste, improve resource utilisation and implement environmental best practice. We are working hard to cut our Greenhouse Gas Emissions to mitigate Climate Change, reducing the energy consumed in our offices, depots and manufacturing facilities, in addition to reviewing fleet performance to achieve greater efficiencies.
Put simply, Colas are committed to minimising our environmental impact to protect the present and safeguard the future.
Our innovative products and services provide sustainable solutions for our customers with reduced material and energy consumption.
In Warrington and Wirral Colas have established a partnership with Elixir Foundations to collect and recycle all waste cardboard, paper and plastic. Elixir are a social enterprise dedicated to creating working opportunities for vulnerable adults including people recovering from addictions, ex-offenders and the long term unemployed. The business not only improves the lives of its workers, but also provides waste management and recycling options to local businesses.
