Every one of our employees answered “planet” when we asked them what they, as an organization, would like to focus on more. It is wonderful that corporate social responsibility comes from our very own people at Heras Mobile Fencing & Security. It’s another thing to actually try to turn these words into actions. How do we do this? Among other things, with our energy-neutral offices. We use only EURO6-compliant transportation. We support local projects and light our factories with LED lighting.
Sustainable product innovations
Every day, we’re confronted with the question, “what is our company’s and our products’ impact on the planet?” We are aware that Production is the major polluter. We can and must take action here.
There are things that we can already be proud of, like the fact that many of our products (including the Noise Control Barrier and mobile fence footing) are manufactured using recycled materials. We use geothermal heat systems to heat our offices. We also use green energy and we recently installed high-speed roll-up doors to keep as much heat inside as possible, which means that we keep our energy consumption lower.
But we’re far from the finish line yet. For example, we weld a lot, which uses quite a lot of energy. We are currently researching if we can adapt this somehow in the future to save energy.
Transporters’ lorries should comply with the CO2 and safety requirements
Our people are also encouraged to put their money where their mouths are when it concerns the “Planet”. Don’t print if you don’t need to. Do ride your bike to work. Do separate waste... sometimes, you just have to “do it”! We ask them to contribute ideas as well. Naturally, this is always a little difficult, but the drive is there inside the organization!
We require a lot from our suppliers and other partners, including when it comes to safety! Transporters who show up with lorries that don’t meet our benchmark for safety can turn right around and leave. This isn’t always easy, but they eventually understand why.
Suppliers must also comply with our CO2 and safety requirements. Together, we show the rest of the world just how important the environment and safety are to us, and we encourage others to take it just as seriously as we do.
The future is in safe hands at Heras Mobile
Our goal is to be the most future- and climate-resilient outdoor security provider of temporary fences. In order to achieve this, we have set a number of goals for 2025. These are ambitious goals, but we are well on our way!
We pay a lot of attention to our people, and our people, in turn, pay a lot of attention to the planet. We need to take good care of our planet. So let's start as early as possible! Read more about sustainability here.
