Our Sustainability Strategy

We at PMT&A are committed to reducing both our company’s impact on the environment and others using our services.


We have taken the green growth pledge and have created a comprehensive Green Growth Strategy to further our goal of making PMT&A more carbon neutral and more sustainable.



1. Our Products and Services

  • We are moving our office process to become paperless, reducing our reliance on paper and cutting down on our use of printer inks and other products.
  • We are delivering mobile training provision to providers and individuals throughout the country which cuts down carbon emission from multiple car journeys and helps with the wellbeing of candidates.
  • We are now using new technology such as iPads on our courses which tremendously cuts down on paper, pens and other resources.
  • Our assessors are also incorporating more digital aspects into the assessment process, cutting down on postage and further materials.

2. Using Land, Energy and Water Wisely

  • Our energy and water providers are also committed to reducing waste and use green technologies for most of their processes
  • Any waste we produce is recycled where possible.

3. Wellbeing of Staff and Our Local Community

  • We support our employees to do community volunteering and participate as much as we can ourselves.
  • We have an inclusive recruitment policy and have close ties with local schools via our community interest company Huntingdon House which provides access for local kids to attain their Duke of Edinburgh awards from Bronze to Gold. We have helped over 500 young people over the last 10 years and almost all of our staff have completed their own Gold awards and now act as DofE leaders, volunteering their time to help out other DofE participants. You can learn more about our work here at www.breconshiredofe.org
  • We are committed to investing in the next generation including young people from any background. Over half of our staff are under 25 and we provide training for signalling apprenticeships for young people across the country to allow them access to new career paths.

Case Study: Using our bus to deliver SMTH training to Cleshar

In late July 2019 PM Training and Assessing delivered a full SMTH certification course to Cleshar in London using our new mobile technical training bus. While the course was a success it also reduced the potential ecological impact by removing the need for six candidates making individual 180-mile car journeys to our centre in Wales. This saved 876kg of CO2 emissions just from using our bus. This also saved a collective 41 hours of driving required, improving the wellbeing of all involved. Our service reduced the overall costs for all, saving approximately £9000 in costs including travel costs, accommodation and working hours lost.
