Environmental and sustainability policy

We aim to protect the environment and prevent pollution by continually improving our products, our internal processes and our supply chain management.

We monitor and mitigate our impact via our Environmental Management System which has been ISO 14001 certified by BSI under certificate number EMS 741488.

We are committed to reducing resource consumption and emissions in line with the Paris Climate Agreement and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), and are working to set our own ambitious, time-bound target.

This is with the goal to achieve a sustainable, low-carbon future for humanity. We recognise the commercial risks of not addressing wider environmental concerns, and add value to many of our customers and their environmental targets through our service delivery.

As part of our commitment to protect the environment, we will:

  • Annually review the full Environmental Management System including this policy which sets the framework on how we manage and continually improve our environmental performance;
  • Inspire our workforce to respond to the current and future needs of the business and its customers in relation to sustainable development and climate change;
  • Fulfil legislative requirements and the compliance obligations of our stakeholders;
  • Improve efficiency of our use of natural resources; reduce waste and atmospheric emissions by establishing short, medium and long-term targets that are commensurate with the relevant UN SDGs and enforce controls to prevent pollution to air, water, and land;
  • Adopt methods of working and product creation that mitigate the effects of climate change, adhering to our mission to ‘See a Better Place’ and our corporate values of ‘Think Customer’, ‘Thrive Together’, ‘Stay Ahead’ and ‘Seize the Moment’;
  • Integrate environmental management throughout our business activities, into our decision-making processes and as part of our multi-year plan. Set relevant and ambitious environmental objectives using an ISO14001:2015 certified Environmental Management System;
  • Communicate the Environment and Sustainability Policy and Environmental Management System to all staff using a systematic approach that contributes to continual improvement;
  • Integrate environmental criteria into the procurement process and ensure that contractors, suppliers and customers are aware and supportive of our environmental commitments.
