ESG | M Group Services Plant & Fleet Solutions (MGSPFS) is proud to now offer over 100 sustainable welfare units to M Group Services’ operating businesses.
These units provide our people with a meeting space, kitchen and toilet facilities and are essential for the wellbeing of everyone working on or visiting a site. We have increased our investment in these welfare facilities from 75 to 105 units.
These innovative welfare units, designed by our supplier Genquip Groundhog, reduce CO2 emissions by up to 80% helping us work towards our commitment to halve our direct and indirect carbon emissions by 2030 and achieve net-zero before 2050.
The welfare units have a range of environmentally friendly features:
For the times when these units are not generating and consuming their own solar power, these sustainable units use FuelActive, a method of delivering 92% cleaner fuel to the engine. The process involves drawing fuel from just below the surface of the fuel tank, which can reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 5%. The units are also compatible with sustainably sourced hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) fuel. Ultimately this alternative method can reduce the non-solar fuel costs by up to 80%.
The units are easy to install, taking less than three minutes for one person to do. They provide an environmentally friendly, health and safety compliant place for our people.
