Message

Environmental issues are a major issue for the international community and require urgent action by all of us. All companies that engage in business activities create an impact in some way to the environment somewhere along the line. That’s why PEW made a decision in 2009 to commit to ISO 14001 and launched PEW Environmental Awareness. The purpose of PEW Environmental Awareness is to promote through its products, where possible and information sharing via its web site and contact with customers, suppliers and the public good environmentally friendly practices.

Vision

PEW’s vision is to promote and make available as many environmentally friendly products as possible to the lift and electrical industry, whilst keeping a competitive edge. PEW also are committed to using more sustainable resources within their business practices and limit the amount of resources used by way of environment education.

Examples of Business Practices

All orders despatched inside the M25 and Home Counties are via PEW’s own fleet of LPG fuel vehicles. All other orders despatched nationally are via a network of carriers which is more fuel efficient and less damaging to the environment than using dedicated vehicles. Prior to despatch most orders are packed using either re-used packaging or packaging purchased from a reclaimed source. All Staff are also reminded to use as little packaging as necessary without compromising the safety of the customer’s order to limit the environmental effect.

All PEW delivery vehicles carry on board as standard a “Spill Kit” in the event of a spillage of any product being held on board a PEW vehicle, the delivery driver can deal with the spill and has received the necessary training to do so.

PEW continues to recycle all used printer ink cartridge through a selected source and recycle all paper and cardboard used in their business process. All IT communication material such as computer workstations, when at the end of their life cycle is decommissioned using a charity recommended by UNICEF. The equipment is both reconditioned and used in schools in third world country or is recycled and is used in the raw material in the manufacture of new equipment. All equipment holding data is decommissioned in compliance with the Data Protection Act and PEW holds certification as proof of decommissioning to that effect.

Business Premises

PEW operates from a 30,000 sq ft modern warehouse facility in Barking Essex. The building was built in 2004 to current building regulations at that time, which took into consideration insulation properties and energy saving devises. All staff members occupying the building are constantly reminded to limit the amount of resources they use, for example the switching off of lights.

PEW are committed to making a positive contribution to the environment through its business practices and promotion of environmentally friendly products.
