Our Environmental Evaluation

To create a meaningful evaluation of our environmental impact we have concentrated our focus on the following areas:

  1. What legislation applies to us and how we are complying with it
  2. Future legal requirements that pose risks and opportunities to our business
  3. Past and present pollution incidents and potential pollution risks
  4. Raw materials – including materials used in production processes and those used in the day-to-day running of the business.
  5. Packaging – how it is used, how it is made, how much it costs and how much disposal costs.
  6. Waste – how much our business produces of different types of waste, size and number of containers, costs of waste removal and frequency of waste collections.
  7. Energy – types of energy used, how much is being used and at what cost.
  8. Water – look at where and how water is used, the cost involved (including effluent disposal), waste and potential for savings.
  9. Transport – including the number of each type of vehicle, mileage per vehicle, type and amount of fuel used.
