Gratte Brothers Group Limited is committed to the protection of the environment and minimising the effect that work undertaken by the Group has upon it. This Policy has the full support of the Directors who are committed to protecting the environment through identification of risks, the setting of measurable targets and the stating of environmental objectives.
The scope of this policy extends to all Group activities, without exception, and covers all its sites and offices.
This policy statement outlines the Group commitment to continually improve both environmental performance and the management system through analysis of the performance measures and staff awareness training while ensuring that pollution prevention is maintained across the business by following best practice guidelines.
This policy is supported by the Ethical and Sustainable Procurement Policy, Waste Policy and Energy Policy. It will be communicated to all staff and sub-contractors. In doing so the company seeks to improve, not only its own, but the environmental performance of those working with it.
Under the leadership of the Group Managing Director and top management an Environmental Management System, pursuant to ISO 14001, has been developed. It has been deemed to be appropriate to the risks, scale and environmental impacts of the Group’s activities. The management system is designed to ensure that all legislative and regulatory requirements are recognised and that a consistent and uniform control of activities is maintained.
This policy will be reviewed annually by top management at the Management Review Meeting, published throughout the group and made available to the public and other interested parties.
