We care deeply for the environment. For this reason we strive actively every day to treat it with care, by reducing the environmental impact of our relocation activities.
As part of our environmental policy, we comply with the relevant statutory and regulatory requirements while also committing to make continuous improvements in this area. Where possible when carrying out relocations, Welti-Furrer always opts for reusable rented equipment over consumables.
For disposals, the waste is separated and distributed to the appropriate official disposal sites. We carry this environmental ethos over to our customers and, as part of our service agreement, promote their own environmentally responsible conduct.
Welti-Furrer only replenishes its fleet with new vehicles that meet the latest European emission standard (currently Euro 6). Fuel consumption is an important factor that we consider when evaluating new vehicles. For example, in 2011 Welti-Furrer was the first removals firm in Switzerland to purchase a Mercedes hybrid lorry. Welti-Furrer fuels its vehicles with eco-diesel. Comparisons are drawn between the fuel consumption of vehicles, and employees are encouraged to drive in an environmentally friendly manner and trained accordingly.
We also select our suppliers in part based on a number of environmental factors. Additionally, we ensure that our suppliers are continuously improving in areas relating to the environment.
As a further contribution to effective climate protection, Welti-Furrer has been working with the Swiss non-profit organisation, myclimate, since 2011. myclimate helps offset any carbon emissions that we produce.
All of these efforts have secured ISO 14001 certification for Welti-Furrer.
