Continuous improvement – to improve the environmental performance of our processes and products through research and development of new technologies, preventing and reducing emissions and releases, minimising waste and controlling noise.


Sustainable development - to contribute to sustainable development by using energy, water and raw materials more efficiently, thus optimising our use of natural resources. Establish recycling schemes for all appropriate waste in our factory.


Transport impact – to operate our fleet in a manner so as to reduce the impact on the transport infrastructure, to reduce ‘empty running’ by getting return loads where possible, using the most economic vehicle for the job.

Purchasing - purchase, wherever possible, environmentally-preferable goods and services and influence our suppliers and contractors to ensure that goods and services procured support our environmental policy.


Product impact - to assess the impact of our products on the environment, to promote the recovery, recycling and reuse of our products and to work with our customers to understand the environmental effects of our products throughout their life cycle.


Monitoring & reporting - to monitor environmental performance and to report progress on policy objectives and improvement targets on a regular basis. Achieve independent accreditation for our environmental management system when possible.


Suppliers & contractors - to encourage suppliers and contractors to behave in a responsible manner and to maintain sound environmental practices.


Local community & biodiversity - to respond to the concerns of the local community and other interested parties on environmental issues and to respect the general environment and wildlife habitats in and around our site.

Review – review all of our activities, operations and procedures to identify, quantify and evaluate their environmental impact and set priorities for addressing these, and to review and revise this statement at least every two years.
