Farmer Palmers are huge supporters of all things Eco Friendly!!
We recognise that our company has an impact on the environment. Our ongoing aim is to continue to identify activities and products that have an adverse impact and actively establish effective measures to minimise waste and energy consumption through implementing recycling, purchasing and monitoring policies. This in turn will lead to the efficient use of water and energy and long term improvements in cost control.
FARMER PALMER'S GREEN FACTS & POLICIES!
- The Hen House Restaurant has it's own Energy Performance Asset Rating which came out at 54 - that is a C rating... Not bad for a converted silage pit!
- We have 48 photovoltaic solar panels on the Hen House Roof. Go to the bottom of the page for quarterly calculation figures.
- In 2011 we are adding a Genysis solar water heater
- Our sewage treatment plant returns treated water to the river, (monitored to prevent pollution) and our cardboard/plastic crusher is kept very busy
- We are already working with two local bus companies to promote public transport and the stop outside our site
The Directors and staff are working towards making this happen and being part of the Green Tourism Business Scheme. We expect similar environmental standards from all suppliers and contractors. We have found it is important to maintain good public relations, liaising with the local community.
Long Term Aims
Committed to continuously seeking to improve environmental performance (raw materials, product, energy, water, packaging, effluent, etc.), research and implement photo-cell solar and other renewable energy resources. Encouraging and assisting customers to use products and services in an environmentally-sensitive way. Avoiding incidents that result in environmental liability, i.e. fuel spills. Discussing and sharing environmental solutions with local businesses (also discount schemes). Improving our monitoring of progress and reviewing environmental performance on a regular basis (usually annually) resulting in resources being used even more efficiently. Using biodegradable chemicals, products and building materials from sustainable (managed) resources wherever practicable.
