ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY STATEMENT
Classical Stone Ltd - Environmental Policy – revised 12/7/2008
The organisation recognises its responsibilities for the wider environment and to the local community. It is committed to comply with all relevant environmental legislation at local, regional and national level, as a minimum performance, and to continually improve environmental performance through appropriate initiatives, controls, provision of resources and training of employees. The aim is to minimise adverse impacts on the environment of activities, products and services.
An Environmental Management System (EMS) is under review that will comply with the International Standard ISO 14001 : 2004. This integrates environmental understanding and control into other systems and procedures, under the direction of the senior management team and with the support of all employees, primary suppliers and contractors. Customers and end users are encouraged to use and dispose of the organisation's products in an environmentally appropriate way through Operation and Maintenance (O&M) manuals supplied on each contract.
Management objectives and targets are established and reviewed on a regular basis to implement the Environmental Policy. These are based on a commitment to six environmental principles:
· Prevention of pollution
· Minimisation of energy and material usage and the production of waste
· Effective and responsible waste management and disposal
· Promoting product reuse and recycling
· Maintaining high workforce awareness of environmental issues
· Involving suppliers, contractors and customers in environmental initiatives
The EMS's effectiveness is monitored and maintained by regular audit and Management Review.
This Environmental Policy is communicated to all employees and made available to the public on request. The involvement of its workforce and external interested and affected parties in its Environmental Policy is encouraged by the organisation through effective communication procedures.
