Energy Saving Grants Environmental Policy
energysavinggrants.org believe that organisations and businesses are responsible for achieving good environmental practice and operating in a sustainable and energy efficient manner.
We are therefore committed to reducing our environmental impact and 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.
Our policy is to:
Wholly support and comply with or exceed the requirements of current environmental legislation and codes of practice e.g. The EU Waste Framework Directive, The Environment Act 1990 and Environmental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulations 1991
Minimise our waste and then reuse or recycle as much of it as possible. This is to be undertaken as follows:
Print documents only when required and where possible print on both sides of paper and in black and white
All waste paper is to be placed in the bin marked ‘waste paper.’ This will then be shredded and disposed of at a recycling point
All plastic and glass is to be placed in the bin marked ‘plastic & glass.’ This will then be disposed of at a recycling point
All electrical and electronic waste must be disposed of in line with The Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Regulations 2013 i.e. via the local authority waste disposal site.
Minimise and maintain low levels of energy and water usage in our buildings, vehicles and processes in order to conserve supplies, and minimise our consumption of natural resources, especially where they are non-renewable.
Operate and maintain company vehicles (where appropriate) 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 operations on the environment and local community.
As far as possible purchase products and services that do the least damage to the environment and encourage others to do the same.
Assess the environmental impact of any new processes or products we intend to introduce in advance.
