Aviation Systems Group is committed to making a positive impact on the environment. We are actively seeking to reduce our carbon emissions and leave a smaller footprint on the world.
As a fast-growing managed services provider for both professional services and for unmanned aviation, Aviation Systems Group (ASG) is committed to sustainability and taking climate action for our planet. In early 2023, we embarked on the formal journey towards ISO14001:2015 Environmental Management System certification, firmly committing ourselves towards conducting our business in an environmentally responsible manner. ASG’s dedication to environmental sustainability extends beyond our business, being at the local and national level.
Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
As proud members of the SME Climate Hub, a platform and rich resource for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK, we conducted a thorough assessment of ASG's carbon footprint. Following this calculation, as of August 2023 we have taken a significant step by pledging our support for an initiative aimed at mitigating the impact of our current carbon emissions. Our dedication to Make it Wild’s tree planting scheme in the picturesque North Yorkshire countryside signifies our pledge to give back space to nature. Tree planting is but one facet of our long-term climate solution strategy, and we’ve made a start in our journey by annually voluntarily offsetting 24 tonnes of CO2e while actively supporting biodiversity. Make it Wild is a well renowned carbon offsetting company, recognised for its outstanding contributions to sustainability.
Protecting Our Future
ASG goes beyond lip service when it comes to environmental responsibility. We work hard with suppliers to ensure a sustainability-centric approach. Our overarching mission to enhance our business presence by promoting positive change through meticulous supplier selection and strict standards. This ethos creates a business culture in which environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) stakeholders are not just involved but actively engaged and empowered in improving their personal and collective environmental sustainability practices.
Furthermore, ASG is committed to fostering environmentally-friendly behaviours among our employees. We do this internally through annual Environmental Awareness Training, a cycle to work scheme, and the establishment of an internal Environmental Sustainability Working Group (ESWG) to drive environmental initiatives and sustainability awareness throughout our organisation.
At ASG, we believe that by taking action today, we can create a more sustainable and resilient future for our environment.
