H. E. Services (Plant Hire) Ltd prioritises sustainability in various ways.
Solar power is the main electricity source across the company’s divisions, thanks to PV solar panels on rooftops.
Our sites also utilises bio-mass boilers, powered using wood chips and other sustainable resources. The on-site heating is further improved using ground source heat pumps.
Waste reduction is practiced through sustainable sourcing and active recycling.
Electric vehicles are used by management and staff, charged with on-site solar power, supported by free charging points. We also provide free EV charging to our customers at our Head Office in Kent and at our UK depots.
The company also favours eco-friendly suppliers, employs digital technology to cut down paper use, and encourages digital access for information.
These efforts collectively reflect H. E. Services’ strong commitment to a greener approach.
H. E. Services, BuyADigger, Masterhitch and the Diggerland Plant Training School all use solar power as the primary source of electricity. Located on the roofs of all parts of the business you will find a large number of PV solar panels that have been constructed over a period of 5 years and provide an infinite amount of energy.
Bio-Mass and Ground Source Heat Pumps:
Electricity isn’t the only fossil fuel source we have replaced. Our site also utilises bio-mass boilers, powered using wood chips and other sustainable resources. The on-site heating is further improved using ground source heat pumps.
All supplies and resources we use are sustainably resourced where possible. We also vigorously reuse and recycle as much as we can to reduce the effect on the environment. We encourage our staff to bring refillable water bottles to further help reduce plastic waste.
We use LED lighting and light sensors throughout our buildings to ensure that the energy used is low and that no lights are left on in the buildings accidentally.
Electric Company Cars:
Our management team and several members of our staff are supplied with electric vehicles to further reduce any impact on the environment. Furthermore, these cars are charged on site using solar power for even greater sustainability. We like to encourage everyone to travel to our site by sustainable methods where possible. For that reason we have free electric vehicle charge points available for our staff, clients and other guests courtesy of EVision Electric Vehicles.
We will always look for sustainable suppliers for equipment and materials used on the site, looking to reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impact as much as possible.
Use of Digital Technology:
As we try to cut down on waste as much as possible, we use computers and other electronics instead of paper where we can. When we have to print any documents out, we use recycled paper for the job. In addition, we encourage our customers to source information electronically via our mobile apps.
