ESG

Senior Move Managers is committed to carrying out business fairly, honestly, and ethically across all business activities. In support of this aim we will consider, measure and report against Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors.

In addition we will produce an annual ESG Report to include appropriate disclosure of ESG performance data, report on benchmarking and research and show progress against our commitments. We take a collaborative approach with our partners and peer group in the Australiasian freight and relocation industry.

Environment

Senior Move Managers will work towards 'Toitu' carbon reduction certification in line with ISO 14064 - 1. We will measure our organisations carbon footprint and put a management plan in place to reduce our carbon footprint.

Waste Management and Recycling Waste

  • All waste material as a result of the move, including any packing material, will be disposed of safely. Any material that can be recycled or reused, will be done so in the appropriate manner.

  • We recycle our packing materials multiple times to reduce the impact of sending used boxes and paper to be disposed of. This can be up to five times per item.

  • We encourage our clients to minimise the request and the usage of non-recyclable materials for packing such as bubble wraps. If the client decides to use them, we ensure the non-recyclable items are disposed of safely in line with the regional council's guidelines.

 Energy Conservation

  • The lightning in our premises has low emission electronic ballasts. 

  • All non-essential lighting are on sensor switches, which automatically turn off when not in use. 

  • Heating is provided by energy-efficient heat pumps, set on timers.

  • Hot water cylinders are new and all pipework is lagged.

Emission Control

  • When purchasing new transit vans and trucks, we consider fuel efficiency to be an important factor when considering the type of vehicle and supplier used. Noise pollution is also an important factor in our vehicle purchasing criteria.

  • Our fleet of vehicles are serviced regularly by an authorised dealer, to the manufacturers specifications to improve efficiency and improve emissions. 

  • We endeavor to use the minimum number of trucks and trips for each task, and also reduce the volume of travel possible between locations through strategically placed office locations.

  • We are committed to replacing our fleet with electric vehicles as soon as they are widely available and economical.

  • All vacuums used by our cleaning staff have filters cleaned and serviced at regular intervals, to ensure efficient use and reduced dust emissions.
