McGrath reduces carbon emissions with digital health & safety advice.

Since the launch of our new digital health and safety awareness presentation in July 2019 the waste management company has successfully reduced carbon emissions by 35 kg by moving to a digital platform to communicate such essential information.

Contributing to the company’s commitment to sustainability, the presentation has been emailed to all that visit our Waste Transfer Stations in London and includes easily digestible health and safety information, covering subjects such as safe entering/exiting of the site, hazardous waste, fire safety, accidents and first aid.

In support of a truly sustainable approach for the waste industry the McGrath Group has developed sophisticated systems to ensure our clients’ wastes are managed in the most sustainable way possible with a Zero-to-Landfill system in place and industry-leading recycling rates. We have also introduced a number of initiatives to reduce carbon emissions generated by our activities such as GPS/route-planning functionality, local resourcing, use of balers & compactors, scope 3 compatible waste reporting and registration with the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme.

The McGrath Group’s Integrated Management Systems are also certified to International Standards ISO 14001:2015, ISO 9001:2015, ISO 50001:2011 and to the Health and Safety Standard ISO 45001:2018.

Tara Donaghy, Business Director said, “We are delighted that this new health and safety video not only allows us to communicate such essential health and safety information effectively to our customers, but has also contributed in such an impactful way to our vision for sustainability and reducing carbon emissions in our activities.”
