our pledge to reduce our environmental impact

Sonnic Support Solutions are actively reducing our environmental impact, as part of our ISO 14001 compliance we have made a pledge to reduce our emissions and impact from cleaning products used in our day-to-day operations by 2% year on year. This is a self-motivated program. surely now is the time to make this a mandatory obligation for all Jersey companies.

Why the contribution is important

Jersey can no longer simply stand back and rely on companies good will to change their environmental  impact, make it law.

    I agree that the government should compel companies to measure their emissions and enforce reductions in set time frame. While I applaud you making a commitment and being open about your progress, reducing emissions by 2% of your current total each year means you'd only reach zero emissions by 2070. We need to be more ambitious, and if the government set incentives or laws on reductions then it would be much easier for companies to take the plunge. Subsidies for businesses to make these changes would greatly speed take up. Fund could come from taxing those that do not make changes fast enough. This would need to be planned to make sure businesses can easily make the change if they try, and only punishes those that refuse help.

    You could start by changing all your vehicles to electric. There are several EV vans available and more new models arriving this year. How much would you reduce your emissions by? I suspect a lot more than 2%. Why are you still driving round in 2021 in polluting diesel vehicles, emitting harmful NOx, Particulates, partially combusted Hydrocarbons and other Carcinogenic toxins for pedestrians to breathe in, and that's before we even get to the CO2 question.

    TheResearcher. yes we are actively looking at the feasibility of changing our entire fleet to EV vans.
