Environmental Management System
We recognise that our activities and services can have positive and negative impacts upon the environment, and that we need to manage them to improve our performance and manage risks.
To help achieve this we have implemented the externally verified Environmental Management System ISO 14001 across all our direct sites and services.
This helps us manage, measure and reduce our environmental impacts such as energy, waste, water, carbon.
The environmental management system ensures we:
- identify all our environmental impacts
- comply with environmental legislation
- continually improve our environmental performance
