Adnan Manzoor, is the Owner, Transport Manager and our elected Fuel and Emissions Champion and he explains how important FORS is to our Company. We came across FORS when tendering for work across London. When we looked at the requirements and benefits of joining the scheme we saw that they fitted in perfectly with our ethos of improving safety whilst complementing our drive to improve fuel efficiency and reduce our environmental impact.
We were inspired by Erith Ltd who are one of our clients and wanted to show that we also take compliance and safety very seriously, so we achieved our Bronze and Silver Accreditation first time. FORS did help us by providing training and tools that improved our policies and procedures.
The performance management toolkit really helped us set our targets for reducing our carbon footprint and accidents while improving our MPG. FORS has helped us improve our filing systems and procedures.
‘FORS has helped us achieve compliance and safety’
The biggest benefit of joining FORS, is allowing us to keep our contract with Erith Ltd and S Walsh & Son, as they are our biggest contracts. Also in the Past 12 months the company has noticed a vast improvement in fuel and tyre wear since we have had our FORS accreditation , “The savings speak for its self”
We have also invested heavily in vehicle safety systems such as 360 degree cameras, nearside proximity sensors and audible alarms for all our vehicles.
‘We have reduced our CO2 by 6.3% in the last 12 months’
We have saved 6.3% on our total Fuel Spend and reduced our Carbon Footprint by 6.3% by making sure our driver select the best possible route to our sites and reduced our Idling across the Fleet.
