CURRENT ACTIONS – March 2023
The entire Board of Directors have swapped to electric vehicles and we are encouraging our “grey” fleet (those with car allowances) to convert to electric where possible. Our main fleet of vans are unable to go electric as yet due to practical constraints, but we are swapping out vans for more fuel efficient models this year.
We are also promoting the usage of cloud based technologies to our customer base. This reduces environmental impact by reducing the manufacturing costs of equipment, the distribution and installation thereof and also allows remote access, thereby minimising the environmental impact of engineer visits.
A current version of this document is available to all members of staff and is published on SharePoint and the corporate intranet.
This statement was approved by the Board of Reliance High-Tech on 15th March 2023. It is issued on a version-controlled basis under signature.
