MONITORING OUR PROGRESS - Objectives, Targets and Management Programmes

Annual environmental objectives will be set and reviewed by management at the bi-annual Integrated Management System (IMS) meeting.

We will employ specialists (where necessary) to assist with environmental matters, such as ESOS and SECR.

We will ensure that we adhere to our Policy and Programmes, and address resulting actions identified through it.

We have included within our system measures to control abnormal and emergency situations.

It is our aim to also consult and communicate our Policy with our Client's and their representative's, our sub-contractors and our suppliers and all persons working for or on behalf of our Company, to promote environmental awareness, to gain their support to meet our objectives. All our employees have been briefed and are fully aware of our Environmental Policy.

 

WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP

We will consult with Local and National Government bodies, enforcing and regulatory authorities, and specialists to seek advice and assistance towards achievement of our Environmental Management Programme to its full potential.

We will, always, comply with regulations, legislation, codes of practice and other requirements associated with the Company and its' operations. Where no laws, regulations or codes of practice exist, we will develop our own standards to allow for the best practicable and financially viable environmental option, not entailing significant and detrimental costs to the Company, whilst considering public, local and interested parties opinions.
