To achieve this we will:

  • Meeting or improving on relevant legislative, regulatory and environmental codes of practice.
  • Developing objectives that target environmental improvements and monitor performance by regular review.

Provide for the effective use of resources by: 

  • Advising customers on the efficient use of energy and other utilities.
  • Promoting waste minimisation by recycling or finding sustainable uses for by-products whenever economically viable.
  • Promoting the efficient use of resources, energy and fuel throughout the organisation’s operations.
  • Provide information for the organisation’s products to be properly used, stored and disposed of so as to avoid unacceptable effects on the environment.
