Environmental Policy

Garden Square Ltd recognising the need to operate the business in manner which reflects good environmental management, the Company is aware of the environmental impacts of its operations and will balance its business activities with the need to protect the local and wider environment

Concern for the environment is an integral part of Garden Square’s associated activities. Garden Square will actively seek to enhance the environment and to reduce any negative impact upon it as far as is reasonably practicable, by recognising its responsibilities through a positive policy on health and safety in the workplace, control of pollution and care for the local environment.

Garden Square will meet its obligations under the Environmental Protection Act and supporting legislation and potential for pollution from its activities will be assessed and either eliminated or controlled so far as is reasonably practicable.

This policy has been endorsed by the managing director and is of prime concern to employees and subcontractors. This general policy will form the basis of Garden Square’s environmental action programme, associated company arrangements and provide a framework for achieving our environmental objectives as well as establishing guidelines for employees, subcontractors and suppliers.

In order to achieve this commitment, we will:

  • Identify environmental impacts that the Company contributes to and establish environmental management procedures that can be incorporated into all business decisions, in a cost effective manner;
  • Regularly measure and evaluate our environmental performance, and improve where necessary;
  • Promote a culture of continual environmental improvement within the Company;
  • Consistently increase the awareness and provide necessary training to all our employees to ensure; environmentally responsible concepts are integrated into normal working practices;
  • Demonstrate control of all our operations, including vehicles, plant and equipment, and ensure that all are performed and maintained with due consideration of the environment;
  • Identify and act positively against potential accidents that could result in an environmental impact, so that if an accident did occur the consequences would be minimised;
  • Minimise waste through a commitment to reuse, recover or recycle, where feasible; and
  • Communicating to everyone working for or on behalf of the Company the requirements of our environmental policy

It is our duty to ensure that good environmental management is practised in all contracts and projects that we are involved in, and we will seek to influence clients to demonstrate a positive environmental commitment.
