Environmental Policy

Churchesfire recognises that its activities may have wide-ranging environmental implications in both the long and short term.

The company’s aim is to minimise environmental damage and maximise opportunities for environmental enhancement.

In carrying out this policy we will provide such assistance, training and information as may be necessary to personnel at all levels.

The director is responsible for the implementation of this policy.

The supervisor on site, or at a place of work, will be responsible for the implementation of the company environmental policy, and will ensure that:

  • Work is carried out in accordance with all the relevant acts, regulations, directives and company policy and procedures.
  • Waste is removed in accordance with legislation by registered carriers to licensed tips and all statutory documentation is kept for three years.
  • Measures are taken to control ground, river and coastal water pollution.
  • Measures are taken to control noise pollution.
  • A good neighbour policy is implemented.
  • Ozone depleting gases such as CFCs and Halons are not discharged to the atmosphere.
  • Wildlife, habitats, flora and fauna, trees, archaeological and heritage remains are protected as appropriate.
  • Material wastage is minimised, recycling options promoted and water, paper and energy conserved.
  • Environmental incidents are investigated, reported and preventative action taken against repetition.
  • We seek to conserve the use of energy, water, and paper and to promote the use of recycled materials at our offices.
  • All supervisory staff have a responsibility to ensure that this policy is implemented at the workplace, to monitor their own areas of control and take remedial action where faults are found.
  • The company provides environmental assistance and auditing through its supervisors, who will be responsible for bringing to the notice of management any deficiency observed, and for providing guidance, information and training.
  • Within the company, arrangements will be made to submit environmental reports and discuss environmental matters at board meetings and safety and environmental committee meetings, or another relevant forum.
