Corporate Social Responsibility

Armishaws Removals places great importance in doing business responsibly and in a sustainable manner and recognising the importance of our staff and customers by putting them at the heart of our business.

Environment

We are committed to minimising the environmental impact of our operations and we take all necessary steps to comply with environmental legislation and standards.

In practice this means:

  • We promote recycling or re-use of packing materials.
  • We dispose of unusable waste in a safe manner that minimises any long-term environmental impact.
  • All of the cardboard we use is biodegradable. All of the polystyrene packaging we use is also biodegradable.
  • We ensure all company vehicles are designed and maintained to give the maximum fuel efficiency and minimum emissions.
  • We plan routes and vehicle loads to maximise efficiency and minimise the impact on the environment.
  • All our employees, suppliers and contractors work with us to prevent pollution and minimise the impact on the environment.
  • We recycle our office waste and turn off our computers at night to minimise our electricity consumption.

With every move, we do everything possible to minimise the environmental impact.

We have recently been awarded the ISO 14001 which is the internationally recognised standard for the environmental management of businesses.

Our Environmental Policy is available upon request.

Staff

We recognise the crucial role our staff play in the success of our company. We aim to attract, develop and retain the best people available and all staff are trained to the highest standards.

We place great emphasis on equal opportunities, valuing the diversity of our staff, where all are treated fairly and with respect.
