Committed to taking care of our environment

Our commitment to the environment in the city and the surrounding area has always been important to us.

With a fleet of vehicles, over 600 staff and more than 14,000 properties to manage, taking care of the environment is no mean feat, but now you have confirmation that we’re continuing to get it right.

We have had our ISO14001:2015 certification reconfirmed, this an internationally recognised standard for environmental management. It identifies the work done at every level of the organisation to make sure our environmental performance is always getting better.

In practice, this means the British Standards Institution (BSI) have looked at everything from how we work with contractors to make sure they deal with waste in the right way, to staff attitudes towards environmental issues. Our processes influence the way we approach our work, from how we buy goods and services to what materials we use across our repairs service and how we deal with our empty properties.

Gill Martin Director of Corporate Services said: “Our commitment to the environment is as strong as ever and very much part of our culture at PCH, we’re continuously looking at innovative ways in which we can have a positive impact on the environment.

“We’re proud that BSI have reconfirmed our certification and we’ll continue to work with them to ensure we keep progressing.”
