Environmental and Sustainability
Environmental Sustainability is Built into our Business Culture
At Abels Moving Services, we believe that every step we take should lead to a greener, more sustainable future.
As one of the UK’s leading specialists in home moving within the UK and internationally, we are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and promoting social responsibility. Masters in The Art of Moving, we take a comprehensive approach to delivering a premium moving service.
How we’re making a difference:
Regular Environmental Reviews
Our commitment to sustainability begins at the top. Here at Abels, we make sure that all our Senior Management conduct annual reviews of our recycling practices and environmental impact.
We continually monitor and update our efforts to ensure we are at the forefront of eco-friendly moving services. This covers our operations across the board, from streamlining our business and storage services to utilising the most sustainable materials in our professional packaging service.
Staff Training for a Sustainable Future
Our office personnel and removal teams are trained to the highest of standards and from the moment our team members join Abels, they’re educated on the importance of waste reduction and our corporate responsibility.
Dedicated to being a sustainable and environmentally friendly business, we have incorporated eco-friendly practices into our culture. That is why all our professionally trained staff have undergone intensive training to ensure that we instil a sense of environmental consciousness that guides our actions every day.
Fuel Efficiency and Safe Driving Fleet
We’re committed to optimising our vehicles’ fuel efficiency. Focusing on improving our carbon footprint by ensuring that sales team vehicles and company cars are all energy efficient with a growing EV fleet. Our company mileage and fuel consumption are closely monitored, adhering to the Euro 6 emission standards, to minimising our overall carbon footprint. In addition, all our team fleets undergo regular assessments and training to ensure safe driving practices and reduce maintenance costs.
Eco-Friendly Packaging and Recycling Initiatives
As an environmentally friendly initiative, we ensure that we only use recycled cardboard for packing and storage. In the event that extra padding or card coverings are needed, for example in the moving of antiques and fine art, we repurpose cartons from import shipments to help minimise waste.
Our commitment to recycling extends beyond our packaging. We have a designated skip for cardboard and paper waste, as well as another for wood products. All these materials are subsequently collected and sent for recycling, promoting a healthy environmentally friendly cycle.
A key recycling initiative that we hold close to our hearts here at Abels is waste prevention through donation. We assist our clients in reducing waste by offering the disposal of unwanted personal belongings through Abels’ nominated charity and Young People Littleport, further contributing to the community.
Abels’ ISO Accreditation
As part of our sustainability and environmental awareness, Abels has been awarded the ISO 14001 certification. This standard demonstrates our commitment to our environmental responsibility, reducing our carbon footprint, minimising waste, and exemplifies our culture of implementing greener operations throughout our business to improve our environmental performance.
Proud to champion sustainability as a core pillar for international success, you can find all our environmental policies here.
