World Environment Day is an annual event celebrated on the 5th of June to raise awareness about environmental issues and encourage action to protect the planet. At QTS, we are committed to all of the three key areas of sustainability; economic, social and environmental. As it is World Environment Day, in this blog, we will focus on the measures we are taking towards reducing our impact on the environment.

Installation of Energy Usage Monitors on Machines by Pro-enviro:

We have partnered with Pro-enviro to install energy usage monitors on our machines. This will help us map our carbon emissions and identify areas that can be targeted for process optimization to reduce carbon emissions. This will then lead to the development of strategic documents such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Taking Action, and Decarbonization plans. By monitoring our energy usage, we can reduce our carbon footprint and work towards a sustainable future.

Recycling of Steel

We are committed to reducing our waste and have implemented a recycling program for steel. This ensures that our steel waste is recycled and does not end up in landfills. Steel is one of the most commonly used materials in the world, and its production has a significant environmental impact. By recycling our steel waste, we are reducing the demand for new steel production and minimizing our environmental impact. This aligns with our commitment to sustainability and our goal of reducing waste.

Recycling of Paper in the Office

We are actively working towards reducing paper waste in our office. We have implemented a paper recycling program, which ensures that our paper waste is recycled and does not end up in landfills. We have also encouraged our employees to use digital documents instead of printing, which has significantly reduced our paper usage.

Installation of Electric Car Chargers in the Car Park

It is no secret that electric vehicles have a significantly lower environmental impact than traditional petrol or diesel vehicles. With this in mind, we have installed electric car chargers in our car park to encourage our employees to switch to electric vehicles. By providing electric car chargers, we are making it easier for our employees to switch to electric vehicles and reduce their carbon footprint.

Investment in Our Leadership Team

We have invested in our leadership team to set our sustainability goals and develop clear KPIs. Our leadership team is committed to sustainability and is working towards reducing our environmental impact. By setting clear goals and KPIs, we can measure our progress and work towards a sustainable future.
