Understanding and managing the impacts we have on the environment is important to us. It not only means that we are doing the right thing in terms of cutting our carbon emissions, it ensures that we are using our resources efficiently and deliver a policing service to the communities we serve that is truly value for money.
Initiatives right across the Constabulary are helping us to be greener including:
Investing in renewable energy reduces our reliance on finite fossil fuels, cuts our energy costs and provides us with an important additional source of income through government incentives.
We know that predicted future prices for fossil fuels mean that our energy costs could be substantially higher longer term at the same time as public sector funding is being cut. We need to find smarter ways of doing more with less.
We can now self-generate more than one Giga Watt of energy ourselves each year across our estate. It means our carbon emissions are lower and we are financially better off.
