As Australia and New Zealand’s premier painting contractor, we at Higgins take our environmental policy very seriously to ensure that we are doing our bit to keep things green. Together with our stringent policy, our environmental program is implemented in a way that ensures that all aspects of the environment are fully considered in all of our activities.
We are dedicated to the cause of environmentally sustainable painting, because painting is who we are. And we are actively doing our bit to incorporate these core elements of our business into sustainable practice.
Leading the field in sustainable property maintenance is as important to us as painting.
Of course, with all issues around effective change and making-a-difference, there’s talk, and then there’s concrete action. And at Higgins, we’re out in the field taking action.
Here’s how our environmental policy is effectively driving positive change through our work:
- We are committed to providing pertinent resources to our employees and contractors – in line with our policy and with current laws – that will aid in minimising our environmental impact.
- We lawfully require that all of our employees and contractors comply with our stringent environmental policy and are held accountable for environmental awareness in their work.
- Our Integrated Management System (IMS) is set in place to effectively monitor and manage our environmental impact and to ensure that we are achieving the intended results of our policy.
- We have set in place the realistic and measureable target of reducing our electricity and paper usage by 5%. This is to ensure that we hold ourselves to our own high standards of environmental performance.
We believe that our environmental policy is a great catalyst in driving significant, positive change in our efforts to be a sustainable property maintenance company.
Indeed, there are many aspects of our core company values that align with the intended goals of the policy.
We believe in the power of working together. We strive to be a strongly unified team. In our efforts to understand the bigger picture of our environmental impact, we aim to empower all members of our team – and those who partner with us – with the knowledge and skills to make a difference to the environment.
We also firmly believe in and value the power of commitment and integrity. ‘We embrace our responsibilities’ and when it comes to our commitments, we don’t just talk the talk. We ensure that we’re acting on track to delivering our promises any and every which way we can. Our environmental efforts are just another example of our commitment to making a difference, and to delivering quality products in a sustainable manner.
While we encourage other companies to become actively involved in the cause of sustainable property maintenance, we like to think that if you’re looking for an environmentally responsible property maintenance company, you’ll call on us! We feel that we are leading in the sustainability aspects of what we do and that our concerted efforts lead to tangible results.
