Building a Sustainable World

Learning, Growing & The Future


One of the major challenges facing businesses within today’s society is the environment. As a core part of the processes involved in the built environment, we have the responsibility to operate ethically.  As a young, growing business, we have taken the concerns of sustainability in our stride. Going forward, we aim to set a standard for our employees, our supply chain, and of course, the public.

At EBM, we are investing time, research, and development into all aspects of sustainable development. Our main aim is to reduce our impact on the environment, by decreasing our carbon footprint and alongside, bringing positivity and contribution to the construction industry, with the environment as the focus. 

For EBM, its important we have a clear purpose in the role of sustainability, as a growing business we feel our purpose is to sustainably and ethically deliver electrical work and maintain the goal of co2 reduction, in order to protect our planet. In 2022, we embarked on measuring and externally certifying our carbon footprint. Measuring and reporting our carbon footprint was crucial, as it meant we could aim to set reduction targets going forward.

Steven Mildren, Managing Director 

"As the managing director of EBM Electrical Services Ltd, I recognise that business sustainability is not just a buzzword, but a fundamental principle that shapes our operations longevity within our business. We are committed to implementing sustainable processes into every aspect of our business, from procurement to project delivery and beyond.

In the rapidly evolving landscape of the electrical industry, sustainability is not only an ethical imperative but also a strategic advantage. By prioritising energy-efficient solutions, through our technical team, reducing waste, and embracing renewable technologies, we not only minimise our environmental footprint but also enhance our competitiveness in the market.

Our dedication to sustainability extends beyond our immediate operations to our broader impact on the community and the planet. We actively seek partnerships with suppliers who share our commitment to ethical and sustainable processes, and we engage with clients to deliver solutions that prioritise long-term environmental and social benefits. We recognise that our actions today will shape the world of tomorrow. By embracing sustainability as a core value, we not only safeguard the future of our business but also contribute to building a more resilient and equitable society for generations to come".

We’re proud to announce that we have achieved the planet mark business Certification, furthering our commitment to reduce our impact on society. This is an incredible achievement involving the entire business.  

The Planet Mark Business Certification is an internationally recognised sustainability certification for all organisations acknowledging continuous progress, encouraging action and building an empowered community of like-minded individuals. 

In order to achieve this sustainability certification, we’ve followed a robust three-step process: Measuring our impact, engaging everyone in the business and communicating our progress. We have measured our own carbon footprint and will continue to take responsibility of our carbon emissions to have a positive impact on planet and society. We are also contributing to the UN SDG's  (Sustainable Development Goals) as we believe that it’s important, more than ever, to do more good and create a sustainable future.   

Our entire business has contributed to our achievement in becoming Planet Mark certified, and every individual will continue to play an important role in our sustainability commitment.  

We want to continue to have a positive impact through our business and hope that we can empower our community to take climate action.
