  • consider the effects that our work may have on the local community

  • take action to eliminate or reduce, as far as practicable, any potentially adverse environmental impacts identified in the aspects register

  • promote environmental awareness amongst our suppliers, contractors and partners by using clear operational procedures

  • complete internal audits and follow a path of continual improvement

  • ensure that directors and the senior leadership team are fully engaged in the management of environmental issues

Directors, management and supervisory 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. All employees and subcontractors are expected to co-operate and assist in the implementation of this policy, whilst ensuring that their own work, so far as reasonably practicable, is carried out without risk to themselves, others or the environment. This includes co-operating with management on any environment-related matter. The Directors have overall responsibility and accountability for environmental matters.
