Environment & Sustainability Policy Statement

Videcom Security Limited are a private company specialising in the installation and maintenance of CCTV systems.

Generally our equipment has a minimal impact on our surroundings in terms of waste generation, emissions to air and water and in terms of the need to recycle. Our equipment is made to a high standard with a robust exterior capable of lasting many years and with careful maintenance, re-usable.

We operate a disposal of old or obsolete electronic components. Much of the packaging we receive and use is Re-cycled. The adoption of low voltage, low current devices wherever possible, particularly in the field of LED lighting has helped our clients to reduce their electricity consumption. We constantly upgrade CCTV component parts to use minimum current devices as they become available.

All our transportation is diesel powered and replaced at regular intervals maximum. The Company also seeks to minimise vehicle usage with shared transport to site encouraged.

The company is actively pursuing a policy of reduced vehicle size and consequent fuel consumption and CO2 emissions reduction for our engineers.

Heavy towed hydraulic access plant is being replaced by lightweight units requiring less powerful vehicles. High level access is being addressed by pooling the use of vehicle mounted hydraulic platforms which can also serve an engineers stowage and tool requirements.

The company is required to sometimes operate in congested traffic areas and it is policy to make such visits at lowest traffic flow periods, therefore reducing the impact upon other road users and minimising on-site time.

Tool box talks are held regularly with all staff and regular company newsletters and training further informs on initiatives designed to improve Sustainability, Noise reduction and reduce the Company's impact upon the Environment.
