At Benchmark we believe that Sustainable Development needs to be embedded at the heart of our organisation, to be a part of our ethos. It should dictate the way that we operate across the board and our employees should truly feel empowered to get involved.
Good business is about recognising the need to look after the needs of its people and the communities within which it operates, whilst endeavouring to work sustainably in all respects. Our MISSION statement focuses specifically on this point.
MISSION – WE ARE COMMITTED TO WORKING IN WAYS THAT ARE GOOD FOR PEOPLE AND GOOD FOR THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
We define sustainable development as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. We are committed to environmental good practice, social responsibility and economic prosperity.
We continue to make inroads on environmental matters both in terms of green waste recycling but also in terms of fuel consumption, encouraging our people to improve their driving habits and be more efficient, so saving fuel and reducing emissions which affect the environment.
All our vehicles are fitted with a driver performance system and we regularly train staff in advanced driving skills. We have set key performance indicators for fuel consumption and provide regular feedback to our people, to encourage more efficient driving skills and achievement of our key performance indicators.
