In 2017’s Carbon Disclosure Programme (CDP) results, Premier Workplace Services has been placed above industry average in showing significant awareness of climate change.
The CDP programme’s scoring system follows a journey towards ‘Leadership’, however 'Leadership (A)' and 'Management (B)' scores are challenging to achieve for the SME sector, and this year none of the participants in the 'supply chain' CDP programme scored above C. Premier's score of C is indicative of our high level of awareness, and placed us well above the sector average, in the top 34.6% of respondents.
Building on last year’s score, Premier has improved significantly within the ‘Strategy, Risks and Opportunities’ and ‘Emissions Management’ sections of the report and were placed well ahead of the industry average with our scores in these divisions.
Jerry Marks, Managing Director of Premier commented: “We are pleased to have achieved this above-industry-average rating again in 2017 and having made significant levels of improvement since last year, the team at Premier can justifiably feel very proud. As ever, we are making investments and changes to continue this upward trend.”
Premier discloses information and data in relation to climate change on an annual basis via the Carbon Disclosure Programme which aids research into effective management of carbon and climate change risk across the globe.
A significant part of the Premier ethos is to contribute towards widening and sharing our knowledge of best environmental practice. Alongside the results from the CDP, Premier has a FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) Bronze Accreditation and has invested in 6 electric vehicles.
