environment policy 2
-> Preventing pollution, reducing waste and ensuring that, wherever practical, measures are implemented to protect and preserve natural habitats, flora and fauna.
-> Considering the effects that our operations may have on the local community.
-> Taking action to eliminate or reduce, as far as practicable, any potentially adverse environmental impacts.
-> Promoting environmental awareness amongst our suppliers, contractors and partners by implementation of operational procedures.
-> Seeking to work in partnership with the community by behaving in a considerate and socially responsible manner.
-> Ensuring effective and expedient incident control, investigation and reporting.
Management staff have responsibilities for the implementation of the policy and must ensure that environmental issues are given adequate consideration in the planning and day-to-day supervision of all work.
We will fully comply with the statutory duties placed upon us, whilst at all times complying with, as a matter of best practice, the requirements and duties set out within Approved Guidance as issued by the Environment Agency and other organisations. As part of our commitment to maintaining the highest levels of environmental management, it is our intention that we will work towards environmental management systems compliant with ISO14001.
All employees and sub-contractors are expected to co-operate and assist in the implementation of this policy, whilst ensuring that their own works, so far as reasonably practicable, are carried out without risk to themselves, others or the environment. This includes co-operating with management on any environment- related matter.
We will take all practical steps to ensure that potential hazards and risks to the environment are identified and that suitable and effective preventive and control measures are implemented. All employees will be provided with the necessary resources, equipment, information, instruction and training to fulfill the requirements of this policy.
