Environmental Performance at Serjeant Security Ltd takes our corporate social responsibility seriously and as part of our wider CSR strategy, we are committed to developing a Carbon Reduction Strategy to reduce as far as practicable the effect that our operations have upon the environment.
As part of a commitment at Serjeant Security to minimize our corporate carbon dioxide ’emissions, we analyse and report on our fleet carbon footprint on an annual basis. Our target in year 1 of our strategy is to reduce this output by 5%. To accomplish this target we have adopted alternative fueling strategies; effective route planning; strict service and vehicle maintenance regimes and fuel usage monitoring.

The Carbon Trust is launching a new package of support services for organisations looking to implement an energy management system to the international standard ISO 50001.
A good quality energy management system delivers a number of benefits to an organisation: from reduced overheads and energy risks, to an improved reputation as a sustainable business.
ISO 50001 provides a best practice framework for energy management, putting in place a systematic approach that drives continuous improvement in energy performance. It is compatible with other management standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), such as ISO 9001 for quality management and ISO 14001 for environmental management, allowing for an integrated approach.
ISO 50001 can also provide automatic compliance with certain regulations, such as the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) in the UK that requires some businesses to identify cost-effective energy savings opportunities. In the most recent ESOS compliance period approximately five percent of businesses required to meet the regulations complied through this route.
