Green Credentials

 Commitment to the Environment

We recognise how important the way we run our business is to the environment and do our utmost to help create a sustainable future. We actively promote the three Rs - reduce, recycle and reuse on a daily basis.

Waste not, want not! 

At Heronhill, we endeavour to eliminate waste by utilising as many recycled boxes and packing material as possible. Rather than buy new boxes and packing material, we re-use boxes sourced elsewhere - don't be surprised if your parts arrive in a domestic appliance or animal feed box kindly brought in by a member of staff! Pallets are also re-used and modified when necessary to ensure they are the right size and strength to take the weight of the equipment. We also produce our own packing material by shredding office stationery which is surplus to requirements. The most important fact is that we carefully and securely pack our parcels using strong, quality boxes and ensure that our spare parts and components are protected during transit and arrive safely and undamaged.

F- Gas Compliance

 

All commissioning and modification work, involving refrigerant, is carried out on our behalf by skilled refrigeration engineers who are 'F Gas Certified'. By being members of the Institute of Refrigeration and the industry trade association, FETA, we make every endeavour to keep up to date and comply with the latest Government environmental guidelines and recommendations.

Video Conferencing

For almost 10 years we have been able to reduce our carbon footprint by taking advantage of video conferencing facilities to avoid the cost and inconvenience of travelling to other parts of the country to have meetings with manufacturers and suppliers. Whilst such journeys are necessary occassionally, we believe it is more important to provide a strong backup from the office whilst playing a small part in saving the environment at the same time!
