Environmental Policy

Environmental and sustainability policy

We are committed to sustainable development (meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) as a guiding principle within our work. Concern for the environment is an integral and fundamental part of this commitment. Our aim is to reduce the impact on the environment from our operations.

We aim to promote good practice and promote the wider sustainability agenda. We will assess the environmental impacts of our operations and set objectives and targets in order to improve our environmental performance. We will regularly review these targets.

  • Reduce the use of energy, water and other resources;
  • Minimise waste by reduction, re-use and recycling methods;
  • Comply with all relevant environmental legislation/regulation;
  • Ensure that our policies and services are developed in a way that is complimentary to this policy;
  • Not prioritise funding needs ahead of sustainability requirements;
  • Encourage all workers to commit to the sustainable development philosophy;
  • Identify and provide appropriate training, advice and information for staff and encourage them to develop new ideas and initiatives;
