C3S Environmental Policy Statement

It is the stated policy of the Company to be committed to a continual improvement of its environmental performance, and to comply with all the relevant regulatory and statutory requirements, in particular the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and associated legislation.

The management undertakes that this policy, having been initiated, will be developed, reviewed and actively supported at the highest level and will be consistent with the other Company policies.

The management also undertakes that the Environmental Policy will remain relevant to all Company activities, products and services and that it will be made, understood, implemented and maintained at all levels within the Company.

The aims of the Environmental Policy will be achieved through the implementation and maintenance of effective two-way communication and training to all personnel on environmental matters.

The Aim of the Company Environmental Policy is to prevent, or reduce to an acceptable level, any environmental harm caused by the company through use of products, materials, process methods or working practices that are environmentally unfriendly.

All staff will be encouraged to participate in environmental initiatives and are to be made aware of:

  • the importance of compliance with the environmental policy and objectives;
  • the potential environmental effects of their work activities and the environmental benefits of improved performance;
  • their roles and responsibilities in achieving compliance with the environmental policy and objectives;
  • the potential consequences of departure from the agreed procedures.

All personnel are to be made aware of the requirements of knowledge of good working practice to:

  • reduce waste production
  • reduce energy use
  • observe improvement notices
  • observe discharge consents and regulations (atmospheric or waste drainage)
  • control fumes, waste etc. produced by their actions.

The policy will be kept up-to-date, particularly as the business changes in nature and size, and in line with all current environmental legislation. To ensure that this is done, the policy will be reviewed annually.
