Environmental Policy

Our Commitment to the Environment

In today’s world, businesses are expected to implement good environmental practices and operate in a sustainable manner. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continuously improving our environmental performance as an important and fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods. It is our hope that we can influence our customers, suppliers and all business associates to do the same. Not only is this sound commercial sense for all; it is also a matter of delivering on our duty of care towards future generations.

Our policy is to:

  • Wholly support and comply with or exceed the requirements of current environmental legislation and codes of practice
  • Minimize our waste and then reuse or recycle as much of it as possible
  • Operate and maintain company vehicles and motorized equipment with due regard to environmental issues as far as reasonably practical
  • Apply the principles of continuous improvement in respect to air, water, noise and light pollution from our premises and reduce any impacts from our operations on the environment and local community
  • As far as reasonably possible, purchase products and services that do the least damage to the environment and encourage others to do the same
  • Avoid the unnecessary use of hazardous materials and products, seek substitutions when reasonably possible, and take all reasonable steps to protect human health and the environment when such products and materials must be used
  • Assess the environmental impact of any new processes or products that we intend to use in advance
  • Ensure that all employees understand our Environmental Policy and conform to the high standards it requires
  • Promote environmental awareness among our employees and encourage them to work in an environmentally friendly manner
