PHP is taking action

PHP believe we all have a responsibility to do everything we can to help, and owe it to future generations to encourage others to do the same.

By installing large numbers of PV (solar photovoltaic panels) on many of their properties across the Borough of Poole. PHP has generated free electricity for the householder, which is free of CO2 emissions.

Rain water harvesting and the use of endothermic heat pumps are supported by PHP, and they are also looking at implementing voltage optimisation.

PHP actively encourages carbon saving and recycling within their organisation by:   

  • Switching off monitors at night
  • Labelling light switches to only switch on what is needed
  • Labelling sockets to remind people to switch off appliances when not required
  • The use of blue bins to encourage recycling
  • Encouraging staff to cycle to work. Providing a cycle store and showers
  • Encouraging car sharing schemes
  • Plumbed in water machines, so no longer using large bottles of water
  • Providing glasses to reduce the use of plastic cups
  • Promoting reuse and recycling events and if anything isn't taken it goes to charity shops
  • Participating in Energy Savings Week
