Magenta Security Services remains an industry leader in environmental sustainability following the introduction of electric vehicle charging points at their offices in Hounslow.
The installation boosts their already impressive environmental efforts as they continue to raise standards for both small businesses and the wider industry. The charging points will enable greater accessibility to electric vehicle ownership for all; staff, suppliers and visitors alike. Furthermore, the electricity supplied to the points is carbon-free as solar panels installed on-site generate all the energy needed.
This development will further decrease the company’s transport emissions. Magenta already operates a fleet of hybrid and electric vehicles so the impact of running them will be brought down to an absolute bare minimum.
At the end of last year, Magenta was recognised for the outstanding achievement of reducing its energy consumption by 75%, despite a broad expansion of operations. Implementing PIR lighting systems, digitising documents, new heating systems and recycling schemes are just some of the ways Magenta has stayed dedicated to bettering the environment over the last 18 years.
Magenta was the first security company to achieve ISO 14001 in 2002.
“We are always looking to do more. Technology improves, it becomes more accessible and I believe it is critical we take advantage of all the opportunities that presents us with,” comments Abbey Petkar, managing director of Magenta Security. “We only have one planet so it’s important, both as individuals and businesses, that we show commitment to reducing our impact every way we can. Magenta works hard to do its bit but we will never stand still on taking action and are pleased to offer ourselves as an example to other businesses of what is possible – regardless of size or sector.”
