Arcus FM publishes third annual Sustainability Impact Report

Arcus FM has released it’s third annual sustainability report for the 2022/23 fiscal year, which discloses the company’s

 impact on key elements of environment and society, including its contribution, both positive and negative, towards the goals of sustainable development.

Arcus says it has had a strong focus on environment and sustainability for several years, not just in the business’ own practices, but with their customer base. This includes Arcus electrifying its fleet and running internal campaigns to drive down business mileage and reduce waste, along with deploying proprietary technology to uncover and reduce a customer’s energy and carbon usage and impact.

The FM company’s main sustainability target is to reduce scope 1, scope 2 and business travel greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent, normalised by revenue, by 2025 from a 2019/20 fiscal year basis.

The 2022/23 report states that by adding 18 electric vans into its fleet, the business has saved 122.85 tonnes of Co2. More than that, through an internal campaign the brand has seen a 200 per cent increase in its grey fleet milage that is being driven in electric vehicles.

Alongside the Co2 saving, 72.3 per cent of Arcus’ waste was recycled or reused, increasing by 29.6 per cent from the year before (FY 2021/22).

Within the report, Arcus FM also notes supporting its customer base energy reduction with activities such as solar panel installations that have an estimated savings of 1MW of energy. The technology led company also offers remote monitoring and commands to support the reduction of energy usage.

Chris Green, CEO at Arcus FM said: “Arcus is fully committed to sustainable development and is focused on embedding sustainability principles into the operation and management of the business. In facilities management, we excel if we don’t just maintain a customer’s estate but add value to their operations and the communities our customers operate in and serve.

“We strive for a culture that goes beyond legal compliance, and in to being a true leader in sustainability in the facilities management sector.”
