Our policy is to seek the purchase of goods and services that minimise negative and enhance positive impacts on the environment whilst meeting our business requirements.
By incorporating environmental considerations into purchasing our decisions we endeavour to make a positive contribution to the environment. To this end, we have developed these requirements that are applicable to our suppliers, contractors and to ourselves. These principles seek to ensure that we and our suppliers act in a responsible manner.

In all cases suppliers should be able to demonstrate environmental policies and management systems sufficient to ensure continuous improvement in environmental performance. Therefore, suppliers should be able to demonstrate upon request:

- Maximise the use of recyclable and renewable materials including energy where possible.
- Make practical efforts to minimise waste and dispose of it in a safe, efficient, and environmentally responsible manner.
- Avoid contamination of the local environment and ensure that emissions, air, noise and odour pollution is, as a minimum, within nationally defined limits.
- The company reserves the right to request from the supplier evidence to support the above requirements.
In support of the supplier policy we will:
- Assign responsibility for the supplier policy to named responsible individual(s) and provide Director oversight.

- Protect the confidentiality of information entrusted to us.
- Recognise the supplier’s own standard where they are working to environmental standards similar to those stipulated in this policy.
