in working practices to make Grainger a lean business and to minimise
What we want to achieve: Grainger aims to operate as efficiently as
possible. This means better understanding the environmental impacts over which
we have direct control, monitoring these impacts and reducing them over time.
Why it matters: By
increasing our efficiency over time, we can save both costs and valuable
Our performance in 2015/16:
- To ensure we work with our
contractors to minimise environmental impacts on our development sites, we have
integrated our Environmental Management System into our project procurement
process and into our development specification
- We have conducted whole life
costing analysis for our PRS properties to understand the long-term operational
costs of investments and deliver the best returns
- We continue to monitor the
GHG emissions generated through our repairs and maintenance contracts.
- We undertook a review of our
procurement function, identifying opportunities to consider sustainable
procurement which we will look to implement in 2016/17.
