Our Environmental Policy

We comply with relevant environmental legislation and other requirements.

  • Manage all of our activities to appropriate international standards of either the UK Forestry Standard or IS014001

  • Reduce our consumption of water and energy and increase the proportion of our energy derived from renewable sources

  • Reduce the amount of waste which we produce, increase the proportion of waste which is reused or recycled and prevent pollution

  • Reduce our business travel and promote the use of suitable methods of transport

  • Where practical, buy services from sustainable sources and encourage our suppliers and contractors to improve their environmental performance

  • Continually improve our performance through monitoring our progress, setting challenging targets and promoting awareness with staff and stakeholders

We review this policy every year and update it as necessary. We will publish it on this website and display it in public areas of our buildings.
