Environmental Policy

Lightfoot recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods, with regular review. We will encourage customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to do the same.

Directors are responsible for ensuring that the environmental policy is implemented and continuously improved. Management and Board of Directors review on a regular basis, however, all employees have a responsibility in their area to ensure that the aims and objectives of the policy are met.

We endeavour to:

  • Comply with and exceed all relevant regulatory requirements
  • Continually improve and reduce environmental impacts
  • Continually improve and monitor environmental performance
  • Increase employee awareness and training
  • Reduce the use of packaging, minimise the use of paper in the office, buy recycled products wherever possible
  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst our customers and suppliers
  • Reduce the amount of energy used as much as possible and take the consumption and efficiency of new products into consideration prior to purchasing
  • Evaluate the environmental impact of any new products we intend to purchase
  • Utilise travel alternatives, Public transport and car sharing where possible
  • Favour ‘green vehicles’ and maintain and service them regularly to ensure ongoing efficiency
  • Partially offset the greenhouse emissions generated by our activities by producing, utilising and selling Co² reducing products and services
  • Only use licensed and appropriate organisations to dispose of waste
  • Use local labour and materials where available to reduce Co² and help the local community
  • Work with suppliers, contractors and sub-contractors to improve their environmental performance
  • Comply with all relevant regulatory requirements

Directors are responsible for ensuring that the environmental policy is implemented and continuously improved. Management and Board of Directors review on a regular basis, however, all employees have a responsibility in their area to ensure that the aims and objectives of the policy are met.
