 3.  Consultation

We will, with regard to all aspects of our environmental policy and in-house management systems establish and maintain effective procedures for, internal communication between the various levels and functions of the organisation;

 4.  Issues and Objectives

We shall establish and maintain procedures necessary to identify the environmental issues which are most significant in terms of our activities, products or services and over which we can be expected to exercise an appropriate level of control and influence.

Areas  of  significant  environmental  impact  include  the  consumption  of  resources  including material, energy and water; the use of transport and fuel; the production of waste, emissions to the environmental through air,  land and water and wider  impacts on the natural and built environment.

We will carry out an assessment of key issues in order to determine those aspects that have or can have significant impacts on the environment. We shall ensure that the aspects related to these significant impacts are considered in setting our objectives.  All objectives and targets set shall be fully consistent with the environmental policy, sustainability policy and with each other and shall, wherever possible are measurable. 

We will address the environmental issues identified as priority areas as a matter of importance and use the principle of Best Practicable Environmental Option in implementing these.

Waste Management 

In the Office Environment: Arrangements are made with the local authority to ensure legal compliance for the disposal of waste.   Where possible, waste arising from the office is recycled, in particular paper and cardboard. Staffs are encouraged to recycle the waste they produce, and to limit their waste production by printing as little as possible. 

 On Site:  Every effort is taken to ensure that all waste is taken away from site on conclusion of a job. Hazardous materials including electrical and electronic equipment, wiring, heavy metals, paint and glue are disposed of in accordance with the Hazardous Waste Regulations.

Industrial waste is disposed of via a contractor and taken to a Waste Transfer Station where recyclable waste is separated.

Sustainable Transport

Commuting  of  Employees;  Employees  are  encouraged  to  use  public  transport  where possible.  Employees  that  drive  to  work  are  encouraged  to  share  a  vehicle  with  other employees who  live nearby. Secure facilities for the storage of bicycles when possible are available.

Transport during Working hours: Company vehicles are used to travel to the site of a job. Where more than one employee is required for a job, every effort is taken to ensure that all staff travels in the same vehicle.  The  vehicle  is  selected  on  the  basis  of  its  suitability,  in terms of size, for the job. Employees are required to turn the engine of company vehicles off when waiting or parked.

In the case where members of staff live in close proximity to the job site they are encouraged to travel to site directly to avoid an excessive journey.

Energy Use

All employees are encouraged to limit their energy use. In the office, computers, appliances and lights are turned off when not in use; windows are kept closed in winter and when heating or air conditioning are required.

Water Use

In  the  office,  staffs  are  encouraged  to  use  only  as  much  water  as  is  necessary.  The consumption of tap water is encouraged in lieu of a water cooler. 

Noise on Site

In general, staffs carry out work during sociable hours. Any job that will generate excessive amounts of noise will not start before 10am and will conclude before 6pm.

Sustainable Procurement

Our  suppliers  of  materials  and  services  are  checked  to  ensure  a  certain  level  of environmental awareness. Where possible, we purchase recycled goods or materials from sustainable resources.  Our Industrial Waste contractors carry out a certain amount of recycling from their transfer Station.

 5.  Targets

We shall establish and maintain documented sustainability objectives and targets, at each relevant function and level within the organisation. All objectives and targets set shall be fully consistent with the sustainability policy and with each other and shall, wherever possible, are measurable.   We will benchmark ourselves against best practice standards established for the sector and seek to continuously improve our performance over the longer period by reviewing and revising the targets set at regular intervals. Our aim is to target for better practices wherever we have a poor record and aim to reduce our impact as reasonably practicable.

6.  Action Plan

We will work with in-house environmental advisor to identify areas of key priority and set ourselves a plan of action to reduce our impacts. We will establish and maintain a prioritised programme of action for achieving our agreed objectives and targets.

The action plan will include:

  • Designation  of  responsibility  for  achieving  the  objectives  and  targets  set  at  each relevant function and level of the organisation
  • The means and time-frame by which they are to be achieved
  • Criteria against which success (or failure) will be measured.

On a regular basis, we will review our action plans and modify them as appropriate to ensure that agreed objectives are effectively addressed.  For significant development or modernisation-related investment decisions we will carry out as appropriate a whole life cost-benefit analysis. 

7.  Monitoring

We shall establish and  maintain documented procedures to  monitor and  measure  on  a regular  basis  the  key  characteristics  of  our  operations  and  activities  that  can  have a significant impact on natural, human, manufactured, financial and social capital.

8.  Management Support & Empowerment of Employees

The approach to sustainable business practice is supported and endorsed by the senior management of the company.  It is communicated to employees, who are encouraged to provide input into the practices and environmental performance of the company.  Ideas are taken on board by management and used to inform the ongoing review of the company’s performance.

9.  Future targets and goals

The company’s aim is to apply for an Environmental Management System (EMS) such as ISO 14001 or BS 8555 over the next few years.

10. Continual Review

While CSI  is already  committed  to  sustainable  practice  across  all  aspects  of  its business, it recognises that there is always room for improvement. As such, the activities of the business are constantly reviewed and analysed to find areas that could be refined and improved. This review is conducted on both a formal and informal basis by external consultants, Senior Management and all employees of the company to ensure that the Company never stands still and continues to strive for complete sustainability.
