Environmental systems

Safeguarding the environment

We aim for 100% compliance with our environmental management systems, and in 2017 we met all our legal environmental obligations. However, there were a couple of instances where we could have done better. We undertook an investigation regarding water standpipe compliance at one of our sites, and are sharing the resultant learning across our business. Noise nuisance was another issue which came up, despite us following industry standards. We are reviewing our systems and processes, to make sure that they are fully compliant with current legislation.

We continue to encourage our people to report any potential environmental issues they spot (observations), because we know that a culture of openness, where everyone recognises risk and sees it as their responsibility to address it, is the best way to prevent incidents on site. We hold the ISO14001:2015 accreditation.
