Severn Valley Windows and Doors 10/09/2015
"We at Severn Valley Windows and Doors have been committed to reducing our environmental impact over the last 5 years. We were awarded a 3 star rating in 2011 and advanced to the highest 5 star rating by 2015. The Green Achiever framework has led to huge reductions in our environmental impacts, from offsetting our carbon and using a renewable energy provider to joining the Bike 2 Work Scheme and increasing local biodiversity on site. We also now use water saving devices, sensor lighting and recycle extensively. Green Achiever has allowed for clear progress through a continuous improvement strategy that we can keep on record should our clients want proof of our commitment."

"Over the years, after implementing environmentally friendly changes, we have progressed from a 2 star to a 3 star rating with Green Achiever. Our Self-Assessed status has led us to implement a system for recycling items and to increase the variety of waste streams we recycle to include electrical equipment, plastic film and containers, computers, monitors, food waste, metal cans and batteries. We have also started to buy recycled furniture, cardboard and packaging, as well as to monitor our water consumption. Green Achiever has shown us that despite not being environmental experts, it is possible to reduce our carbon footprint through a series of small steps."
