We recognise that our activities within the construction industry may have an impact on the environment. It is our belief that our performance as an established building and construction company is measured not only in our profitability but also by minimising our negative impacts on the environment. We share this belief with all of our stakeholders and with other communities around us in the UK. We have established this environmental policy to reflect our commitment in minimise our negative environmental impacts, that arise from our business activities.
It is our policy to:
● Assign appropriate resources to maintain this policy and to comply with all relevant regulatory, legislative, codes of practice and other requirements
● Operate an Environmental Management System that forms part of our fully integrated management system that would fully meet the requirements of BS EN ISO 14001* and uses current industry best practice to set and monitor clear environmental objectives and targets with a philosophy of continual improvement
● Minimise waste at source; where waste production is unavoidable, we will implement practices and procedures to divert waste from landfill, where practicable
● Prevent any form of pollution and to protect ecology affected by our activities
● Reduce resource consumption, where practicable, whilst maintaining our business objectives
● Communicate with local communities as necessary to minimise any environmental disturbances caused by our activities
● Provide necessary information, instruction, supervision and training to our employees and contractors to make them aware of the environmental responsibilities faced by us as a business and by them as individuals in achieving all of the above.
We intend to continually be responsible for the development of these policies, which will be reviewed as necessary it will be prominently displayed at all offices, sites and work places and is available to all interested parties.
* (ISO 14001 is a standard related to environmental management that exists to help organisations to minimize how their operations negatively affect the environment. To comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements, and to continually improve in the above. It pertains to the process of how a product is produced, rather than to the product itself. As with ISO 9000, any certification is performed by third-party organizations rather than being awarded by ISO directly).
