Environment & Sustainable Development

The Operation & Maintenance activities Dietsmann carries out for clients are always conducted in the most environmentally sustainable manner possible in order to prevent damage to local ecosystems. Dietsmann has never received a Notice of Violation related to environmental issues, nor any monetary or other sanction for non-compliance.

All of our offices have active, ongoing recycling programs and, in many cases, give recycled materials to their communities. Sustainable development that contributes towards economic growth, ecological equilibrium and social progress is at the core of Dietsmann’s sustainability policy. Commitment to sustainable development has always been part of our culture. As a group we strive to deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients and society at large: outcomes that support the needs of today’s world while protecting the resources of future generations.

Reducing our carbon footprint

Dietsmann’s global objective is to reduce the CO2 emissions resulting from the Group’s activities. Towards this end a survey to collect initial measurements has been conducted among all Dietsmann subsidiaries. The results will serve as a basis for evaluating, prioritizing and measuring emissions that contribute towards the greenhouse effect.

The use of company vehicles generates a substantial portion of our carbon footprint. Measuring the CO2 emissions produced by our fleet was, therefore, a key component of the initial survey. To help minimize the impact of vehicle use on the environment and increase drivers’ awareness of the issue, a second survey was conducted at all sites and a set of rules for driving was drawn-up. These rules form the basis of a new driving code that will encourage ‘eco-driving’.
