Stiles Harold Williams Environmental Policy.
Stiles Harold Williams Environmental Policy
STILES HAROLD WILLIAMS, (‘SHW’) has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements and recognises that its business activities and the buildings it occupies all impact on the environment. We will strive to reduce our impact on the environment and will, through experience and knowledge gained, encourage our clients, our stakeholders and our suppliers to do likewise.
SHW has adopted the following environmental policy framework for establishing clear objectives, and for setting, monitoring and reviewing its management controls to ensure not only compliance with this policy, and with all relevant environmental legislation, but with the aim of continuing improvement in its environmental performance.
SHW is certificated in respect of its environmental management system in compliance with ISO 14001:2004 and is committed to regular and continual review of the systems adopted.
SHW has formed the 'Green Committee', comprising staff from its various offices, disciplines and levels. The committee has been tasked with the implementation of various measures, aimed in the first instance at achieving certification of the EMS, but thereafter to ensure ongoing compliance and continual development and improvement of SHW's approach on all environmental matters.
The KEY environmental objectives of Stiles Harold Williams are:-
- To minimise the use of paper and paper waste in the office.
- To improve our waste management and waste separation system.
- To engage environmentally responsible suppliers.
- To reduce energy and water consumption.
- To increase staff awareness and individual environmental responsibilities.
The Management Board of SHW supports this policy and takes responsibility for its success by ensuring the necessary resources are available for its effective implementation.
This policy will be displayed in all our offices and our website for public view.
SHW will publish, circulate, review and promote its environmental policy in order to improve staff awareness and individual responsibilities within it and will implement appropriate training where required.
