ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

Commitment

Ede and Ravenscroft is committed to achieving environmental best practice throughout its business activities, wherever this is practicable.

We recognise that the pursuit of economic growth and a healthy environment must be closely linked and that ecological protection and sustainable development are collective responsibilities in which governments, businesses, individuals, and communities all have a role to play.

Responsibility

Our Environmental Responsibility Programme (ERP) is based upon continuous improvement, consistent with current knowledge.

Everybody within the organisation has responsibility for ensuring the principles of the ERP are incorporated in their everyday activities.

Management

Environmental management continues to be a corporate priority, fully integrated into our business. We believe that good environmental performance is a key indicator in demonstrating effective corporate management.

Operating Practices

Ede & Ravenscroft aims to fully meet all its legal obligations to the environment and will work continuously to achieve the best environmental operating practices within the fields it operates. We recognise the threat posed by climate change and are seeking to reduce our carbon footprint accordingly. We also inform our suppliers and contractors about our environmental policy and waste disposal practices and cite their responsibilities.

Objectives

Our objective is to search for ways to improve material and energy efficiency and to reduce the environmental impact of our products and systems. Ede and Ravenscroft will seek to minimise the use of resources and encourage economically and ecologically justified systems for the re-use, recycling or proper disposal of any waste products.
