Environmental Policy

We believe that businesses are responsible for achieving good environmental practice and operating in a sustainable manner.

We are therefore committed to reducing our environmental impact and, by working with the Carbon Trust to reduce our carbon emissions, continually improving our environmental performance as an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods.

It is our priority to encourage our customers, suppliers and all business associates to do the same. Not only is this sound commercial sense for all; it is also a matter of delivering on our duty of care towards future generations.

Environmental Policy Statement

Our policy is to:

  • Wholly support and comply with or exceed the requirements of current environmental legislation and industry standards and contributing to the development of new standards.
  • Minimise our waste and then reuse or recycle as much of it as possible. Scrap metal and paper/cardboard is collected for recycling. Paint thinners are recycled on site and waste oil is collected for safe disposal.
  • Introduce energy and water usage management systems in our buildings (taking full account of ground water protection and discharge), vehicles and processes in order to optimise and conserve supplies, to allow us to minimise our consumption of natural resources, especially where they are non-renewable.
  • Operate and maintain company vehicles with due regard to environmental issues as far as reasonably practical and encourage the use of alternative means of transport and car sharing as appropriate.
  • Apply the principles of continuous improvement in respect of air, water, noise and light pollution from our premises and reduce any impacts from our fabrication and painting operations on the environment and local community.
  • As far as possible purchase products and services from suppliers and contractors with high environmental standards and products that inflict the least damage to the environment.
  • Where deliveries are necessitated a minimum of Euro 3 vehicles are preferred. Actively encourage others to do the same.
  • Assess the environmental impact of any new processes or products we intend to introduce in advance.
  • Ensure that all employees understand our environmental policy and conform to the high standards it requires.
  • Address complaints about any breach of our Environmental Policy promptly and to the satisfaction of all concerned.
  • Update, our Environmental Policy annually in consultation with staff, associates and customers.
