How can field-service firms do their part for the planet?
Sunday, June 5 was World Environment Day, a global UN event encouraging everyone to restore our planet.
This theme is becoming more urgent, and BigChange echoes the need to take action. The time to act is now, and business leaders can be a powerful force for change.
In its practical guide to living sustainably, the World Environment Day organisers lay out some achievable steps for all businesses:
- Set emission-reduction targets, and work to continuously improve energy efficiency.
- Offer employees the opportunity to pay into a Green pension fund, which supports sustainable investments.
BigChange is already helping over 2,000 field service businesses work more sustainably. Here are just some of the ways we help our customers make an impact:
Cutting out van miles that hit the environment (and your bottom line)
The fastest way to reduce your carbon footprint is by driving fewer miles. Our Intelligent Scheduling Assistant works to get the most out of your resources. It routes the right teams, assets and vehicles, to your job’s location in the most efficient and sustainable way.
Live traffic updates help find the best route between jobs, saving time and fuel.
Improving driving practices to use less fuel
With BigChange, managers can set driving behaviour alerts and view driver data, in order to curb idling, speeding, and harsh acceleration.
Not only does this keep your people safe on the road, it also cuts fuel costs and emissions. For instance, driving at 55mph uses 25% less fuel than driving at 70mph.
Cutting paper out of the picture
BigChange is a paperless system. It brings together CRM, job scheduling, live tracking, field resource management, financial management and business intelligence into one simple to use and easy to integrate platform.
This way, we helped customers save 60 million sheets of A4 in 2021 alone. That’s roughly equivalent to 7,200 trees.
World Environment Day’s message is clear. There are billions of planets, but there is only one Earth.
We’re committed to leading the field service sector to greener, more sustainable ways of working. We hope you’ll join us.
