BTU Social Responsibility 
Our commitment - BTU holds its own Social Value Policy which has been put in place in line with the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012.
We aim to provide the following community benefits whilst delivering our contracts:
• Contributing to the local economy by using locally based sub-contractors and suppliers.
• Assigning locally based operatives and an apprentice from the local community.
• Minimising the environmental impact by our fleet and waste management approach
• Purchasing according to our Sustainable Procurement policy
• Development and provision of skills and employment in the local area
Corporate Social Responsibility
BTU in the communities we serve
What we can achieve in relation to working with specific clients depends on the size of the contract and length of time we are working within a community.  Our social value team will work with each customer to develop a specific plan which will seek to achieve added benefits for the community via a range of social value initiatives.

Local Economy
Local Economy
• We will use (where practicable) local suppliers and sub-contractors 
• We have SLAs in place with many suppliers with local presence, so will use local branches 
• We estimate that 10% of the value of the contract would be deployed in the local economy.
BTU Team
Development of skills and employment
• We will select operatives from engineering team prioritising those with the relevant skills that live within 20 miles of the site 
• If any new operatives are required we will recruit locally.
BTU Social Responsibility
Minimising impact on the environment
Activities will be undertaken in line with our ISO14001 Environmental Accreditation including:

• Assigning homebased engineers to minimise time on the road and fuel usage. 
• Our Fleet Management (see below) will provide significant environmental benefits. 
• Our Sustainable Procurement Policy ensures the products we buy fulfil sustainability criteria 
• All waste generated on site is recycled. We will produce a Waste Management Plan as part of the CPP for this project.

Fleet Management
The BTU fleet is managed according to FORS Bronze standards and includes:

• Monthly inspections of all vehicles and as required repair, service and maintenance.
• Replacement of up to 20% of the fleet annually to ensure compliance with EU emissions standards.
• Monthly monitoring of fuel consumption by vehicle.
• Vehicle tracking devices to monitor routes taken and speeds driven.
• Drivers not meeting set KPI’s for consumption are separately assessed by the RAC Fleet Risk Management process to identify and then improve aspects of poor driving ability. Studies have shown that the adoption of policies as outlined above can reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 15%.
