Environmental Policy

We believe that businesses are responsible for achieving good environmental practice and operating in a sustainable manner and in accordance with ISO9001.

We are, therefore, committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods.

It is our priority to encourage our customers, suppliers and all business associates to do the same.

Not only is this sound commercial sense for all; it is also a matter of delivering on our duty of care towards future generations.

Our policy is to:

  • Meet or exceed all the environmental legislation that relates to the company
  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst our customers and suppliers
  • Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible
  • Minimise energy and water usage in our buildings, vehicles and processes in order to conserve supplies, and minimise our consumption of natural resources, especially where they are non-renewable.
  • Operate and maintain company vehicles with due regard to environmental issues as far as reasonably practical and encourage the use of alternative means of transport and car sharing as appropriate.
  • Apply the principles of continuous improvement in respect of air, water, noise and light pollution from our premises and reduce any impacts from our operations on the environment and local community.
  • As far as possible purchase products and services that do the least damage to the environment and encourage others to do the same.
  • Ensure that all employees understand our environmental policy and provide training where needed to conform to the high standards it requires.
  • Address complaints about any breach of our environmental policy promptly and to the satisfaction of all concerned.
  • Update our environmental policy annually in consultation with staff, associates and customers.
  • Fine Cut Group Ltd will measure its impact on the environment and set targets for ongoing improvement.
