We pride ourselves on our values. Fundamental beliefs and objectives of the company that creates a common goal. The foundations on which SBS were built upon were those of three key values. Ultimately STAFF + STOCK = SERVICE
SBS have made large investments to reduce the company’s carbon emissions over the past few years, with no plans to stop.
There are now ZERO all petrol/diesel cars left in the business, these being superseded with all electric & hybrid alternatives. The installation of 22kW Electric vehicle charging points has also been carried out at all locations.
Our transport department is also exploring the feasibility of adopting additional carbon-neutral alternatives such as fuel additives, hydrogen vehicles and are even trialling electric vans. Ultimately, when technology allows, SBS intend to replace all commercial combustion vehicles.
www.sbsonline.net was launched in 2021, giving customers the opportunity to manage their accounts online and access their account 24/7, information that in the past would have been communicated on paper. Other paper reducing initiatives include daily transport checks being conducted electronically, and the introduction of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), which will ensure paper-based documents such as invoices and purchase orders will become a thing of the past. Another leap towards a more eco-efficient future here at SBS.
The journey towards a greener future has no end date, and SBS will continue to promote the benefits of a carbon free, cleanlier, healthier, and sustainable future wherever we can.
