WCF are committed to undertaking our activities to minimise our impact on the environment and local communities. As a minimum, we operate in compliance with legislation and strive to utilise relevant best practice in all our operations. We recognise that by meeting our obligations to detect and mitigate those adverse effects that our operations may be having on the environment, we can not only reduce our carbon footprint through reduced emissions, contamination, energy consumption and waste, but also provide our business with valuable commercial benefits and promote a positive image to our customers, employee owners and other stakeholders.
The key points of our environmental strategy are:
As a large entity, WCF complies with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (“ESOS”) and Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (“SECR”). We record and analyse our energy usage for Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions and take the necessary steps to implement energy savings wherever possible. Through the above we hope to demonstrate our environmentally responsible credentials and encourage our suppliers and customers to follow similar environmental best practice. We are now working on capturing the necessary data to map our scope 3 emissions to allow us to better understand and plan our own journey to net zero.
