We will meet the requirements of applicable environmental legislative standards.
We will meet industry codes of practice and procedures to which we have subscribed.
We will strive to continuously improve our internal processes and practices to address the environmental impact and cost of our products and services.
We will develop and maintain an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) to document our environmental objectives and environmental targets and enable us to monitor our overall environmental performance.
We will train and resource our staff in practical environmental management.
We will commit to preventing pollution and especially minimise the release of any contaminant into our environment.
We will use raw materials efficiently to conserve our natural resources.
We will recycle packaging materials and minimise waste.
