We care about the environment in which we live, and we take our responsibilities very seriously. Our actions today will affect tomorrow's generation and we believe that managing environmental issues should include everyone at Peartree.
We are making a tangible and demonstrable impact on ethical employment, sustainable procurement and corporate social responsibility, through the way we conduct our business, and, in the support and advice we provide to our clients.
Single Use Plastics Removal
We are committed to continuous improvements in our environmental performance in every sphere of our operations, specifically in the reduction of plastic and packaging. We have removed most single use plastic bottles from our supply chain with the introduction of pre-dosed concentrated cleaning products encapsulated in fully water-soluble sachets.
Following the COVID-19 outbreak in March 2020, we replaced all general purpose cleaning products with a pre-dosed anti-virucidal product to prevent further the spread of the virus within our client's premises.
Electric Vehicles Fleet
Our fleet vehicle fuel consumption has, to date, been the greatest contributor to our carbon emissions. Where possible, we have reduced our fleet and encouraged the use of public transport. However, we are aware that for a number of our managers, a car is vital in delivering the service that our customer’s expect. That is why, during 2021 we began the process of replacing our hybrid fleet with net carbon neutral vehicles, starting with the VW ID.3.
