At Titan we are aware of the impact that our every day activities have on the environment. As such it is our intention to operate our business in an as environmentally friendly way as we can.
Titan is committed to reducing the company’s carbon footprint year on year. We aim to reduce our carbon footprint through various means including:
- Installing timers on appliances and office equipment to ensure they are not left switched on.
- Installing low energy light bulbs where old bulbs expire.
- Installing energy efficient hand dryers in order to eliminate the use of paper hand towels which get disposed of in landfill.
- Encourage a paper free office throughout the business.
- Provide recycling opportunities throughout the office.
Titan has been able to reduce its carbon footprint from 0.93 tonnes of CO2 used per member of staff in 2008 to 0.78 tonnes of CO2 per member of staff in 2010, a reduction of 16%.
Our target is to consume less energy each year whilst still maintaining growth, aiming to reduce energy usage by between 5-10% over the next 2 years.
Titan aims to do this by:
- Avoid unnecessary carbon expenditure.
- Improve cost effectiveness in producing a comfortable working environment.
- Protect the environment by minimising CO2 emissions.
- To buy fuel at the most economic cost while ensuring security of supply, and ensure that energy consumption is monitored across the site, periodically comparing energy costs and utilisation within the organisation.
- To utilise the fuel in the most cost effective manner.
- To reduce pollution levels caused by our energy use.
- To reduce, wherever cost effective, our dependence on fossil fuels, through the use of good design and modern controls in the any new buildings and refurbishment programmes.
- To control heating temperatures and periods in each building consistent with its pattern of use.
- To increase awareness of energy issues among staff and encourage energy responsible attitudes.
- To utilise low energy appliances whenever possible giving satisfactory lifecycle payback.
- When planning new buildings, any refurbishments and more effective use of space, the Company is fully aware of implications for energy usage.
In today’s ever more environmentally conscious society, it is important to look at the way our businesses operate and contribute towards reducing their carbon footprint.
We have been able to calculate that we have further reduced our carbon footprint from 0.78 tonnes of CO2 used per member of staff in 2010, to 0.61 tonnes of CO2 per member of staff in 2012, a further reduction of 22%.
