Environmental Policy

Obligations

Quicksew is committed to reducing the impact of its operations on the environment. We acknowledge that as a service organisation we can minimise the negative impact on the environment in many small ways as well as be a role model for responsible and sustainable environmental behaviour of our staff and suppliers.

The Key Principles and Actions underpinning our Environmental Management Policy are:

  • Take environmental issues seriously at a Senior Management level
  • Develop and support small-scale environmental improvement plans at sites wherever possible
  • Consulting with employees and suppliers to ensure that environmental impacts on sites are understood and addressed effectively

We maintain and continuously improve an Integrated Management System that complies with the requirements of the ISO 14001:2015 and all Environmental legislation and other requirements which are relevant to Quicksew.

Objectives

Our environmental objectives are to:

  • Minimise environmental impact to land, water, air, flora and fauna
  • Prevention of pollution, protect the environment, preserve natural resources and conserve all heritages

Responsibilities

To achieve these objectives, we shall act to:

  • Ensure high levels of management and staff involvement in achieving stated objectives
  • Continuously engage all stakeholders in meaningful consultation and communication
  • Use suppliers, wherever possible, who have similar environmental objectives as ourselves and give preference to environmentally friendly products and equipment
  • Always weigh the environmental benefits of a product equally with its price and safety benefits
  • Measure our performance and use this information for the continual improvement of our services and Integrated Management System

Application of this policy

We seek the co-operation of all workers, customers and other persons. We encourage suggestions for realising our environmental objectives.

This policy applies to all business operations and functions, including those situations where workers are required to work off-site and will be reviewed on an annual basis.
