Wilmslow Express - - EAST CHESHIRE RAMBLERS -

STAFF at Cheshire Po­lice have achieved na­tional recog­ni­tion for their ef­forts to cut costs while pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment.

The Es­tates and Fa­cil­i­ties team, led by Emma Marvell and Karen Wick­stead, in­tro­duced en­ergy ef­fi­ciency schemes such as so­lar pan­els, a staff car share, wa­ter sav­ing de­vices in toi­lets and LED light­ing at po­lice sta­tions. In five years the Force has cut its car­bon foot­print by almost a quar­ter and saved £1.6m.

The staff have won gongs at the Bri­tish In­sti­tute of Fa­cil­i­ties Man­age­ment (BI FM) awards and Pub­lic Sec­tor Sus­tain­abil­ity awards.
