Bison green credentials
Here at Bison Electrical, we take climate change and the impact it has upon the landscape around us, very seriously.
The Bison team have young families, and this makes it all the more important to secure a brighter, greener future for our children.
So, what is Bison Electrical doing to help protect the natural environment?
We are working with Hugh from the Somerleyton Estate, who is the founder of WildEast, by purchasing trees. WildEast is an environmental charity that aims to return 250,000 hectares of land to nature and reverse the ecological damage.
WildEast looks to farming estates, industrial estates, housing estates, schools, gardens, allotments, and churchyards to give a bit of their outside space over to nature. This means to let it go wild, with no mowing or ploughing - simply long grasses, wildflowers and dandelions for insects and wildlife to make their home.
SME Climate HUB
Bison have joined 2,763 other UK businesses as members of the SME Climate HUB, which is a commitment to becoming a net zero business. This means that by 2050, we will be putting no more carbon into the atmosphere than we are taking out of it.
To achieve net zero, Bison must undertake many business changes to become greener and some of these steps include:
- Ensuring our offices are well insulated.
- Using LED, energy efficient bulbs where possible, not only at our premises, but for our customers as well.
- Minimising the waste from parts and products for our electrical work.
- Offsetting carbon by planting trees at Somerleyton Hall.
- Buying our products from more eco-friendly suppliers.
One of the biggest steps we are taking is to electrify our fleet of work vans, which means we will have two electric work vehicles for our team. As we continue to grow, our fleet will too.
OZEV Approved Installers
To help other businesses become greener, Bison Electrical Services are OZEV approved installers for workplace EV charging points, and distributors of Rolec and Sync EV charging solutions. We have done this because the Energy Saving Trust and the Office for Zero Emissions (OZEV) have grants available, with funding of up to £350 off each workplace EV charging point installation when fitted by an OLEV approved installer.
We at Bison are determined to be part of the solution and not the problem.
