Glendale secures FORS accredited status

National green services company Glendale has received accreditation from the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) in recognition of its environmental policies.

The accreditation is recognised across the UK as a quality and performance benchmark for fleet operators and is part of Glendale’s commitment to being safer, greener and more efficient.

FORS accredited companies have access to additional resources which can help reduce their environmental impact, such as fuel trackers and ‘greener city’ driver training.

To attain the status, Glendale was required to submit to an audit which reviewed working practices, policies, procedures and management system documentation.

It also had to demonstrate that it managed risks to its operations and that systems were in place to monitor fuel use, Penalty Charge Notices, vehicle incidents and other infringements.

After passing all of the inspections, Glendale was awarded accredited status and will be subject to reassessment after a set period via a pre-approval process.

John McKenna, Glendale’s operations manager for London and the South East, said: “Glendale is committed to constantly reviewing practices to ensure maximum safety and minimum environmental impact. ┬áThe FORS accreditation communicates this to our contractors and reaffirms that we are a high performing operator which adheres to the highest quality standards.

“While it is necessary for us to operate a fleet in order to carry out the work we do, it’s important that we manage our impact on the environment. ┬áThe accreditation not only proves that we already do this successfully but also gives us the opportunity to look at more ways we can keep our operations safe and green.”
