Cool and Heat Ltd is committed to promoting sustainability.

Our Policy

Cool and Heat Ltd is committed to a more sustainable future for everyone, moving our recommendations of equipment away from the old Liner economy practice to a circular economy best practice by choosing our supply chain partners that hold aligned ideals.

New Thinking


Our Sustainability Policy is based upon the following principles:

  • To comply with, and exceed where practicable, all applicable legislation, regulations, and codes of practice.
  • To integrate sustainability considerations into all our business decisions.
  • To ensure that all staff are fully aware of our Sustainability Policy and are committed to implementing and improving it.
  • To minimise the impact on the sustainability of all office and transportation activities.
  • To make clients and suppliers aware of our Sustainability Policy, and encourage them to adopt sound sustainable management practices.
  • To review, annually report, and continually strive to improve our sustainability performance.
Travel & Meetings

Practical steps

In order to put these principles into practice we will:

Travel and meetings

  • Walk, cycle, and/or use public transport to attend meetings, site visits etc, apart from in exceptional circumstances where the alternatives are impractical and/or cost prohibitive.
  • Travel over 200 miles, where possible, will be undertaken by train.
  • Avoid physically travelling to meetings etc. where alternatives are available and practical, such as using teleconferencing, video conferencing, or web cams, and efficient timing of meetings to avoid multiple trips. These options are also often more time efficient, while not sacrificing the benefits of regular contact with clients and partners.
  • To reduce the need to travel to meetings, and elsewhere, and facilitate regular client contact, we will provide a web cam to clients free of charge for the duration of a project, where appropriate.
  • Reduce the need for our staff to travel by supporting alternative working arrangements, including home working, etc, and promote the use of public transport by locating our offices in accessible locations.
  • Replace all internal combustion vehicles with electric vehicles by 2026.

Purchase of equipment and consumption of resources

  • Minimise our use of paper and other office consumables, for example by double-siding all paper used, and identifying opportunities to reduce waste.
  • As far as possible, arrange for the reuse or recycling of office waste, including paper, computer supplies, and redundant equipment.
  • Reduce the energy consumption of office equipment by purchasing energy-efficient equipment and good housekeeping.
  • Seek to purchase electricity from a supplier committed to renewable energy. Seek to maximise the proportion from renewable energy sources, whilst also supporting investment in new renewable energy schemes.
  • Purchase fair-trade and/or organic beverages.

Working practices and advice to clients

  • Undertake voluntary work with the local community and/or environmental organisations and make donations to seek to offset carbon emissions from our activities.
  • Ensure that any associates that we employ take account of sustainability issues in their advice to clients.
  • Offer the most sustainable product available when replacements are required.
  • Focus on energy reduction with any proposal.

Staff education

  • Undertake workshops with staff to engage with the sustainability policies of the company.
