Environmental Policy

In an increasingly resource constrained world and to demonstrate brand leadership Browning Environmental inherently respects the environment by committing to monitor, and continually reduce the direct impact of its operations on the environment from:

  • Energy use – minimising energy consumption through a number of strategies including a strict ‘switch-off’ policy for all electrical equipment, and the use of energy efficient light fittings and appliances where available. In addition, to perform regular energy audits and encourage others to do so.
     
  • Transport - Encourage employees, associates and stakeholders to commute via public transport or by bike where feasible. To keep business travel to a minimum and use public transport where possible. Only fly for essential trips outside of the UK.
     
  • Consumption of paper and other resources – To use fairly traded and environmentally friendly products as a first preference. To consider energy efficiency as a key factor when purchasing electrical equipment. To use paper that is either recycled or FSC certified.
     
  • Water use – To encourage the use of refillable bottles and the use of tap water.
     
  • Managing any significant sustainability risks in its supply chains. Use suppliers that comply with relevant environmental legislation and regulations, and, where practicable, have demonstrated a commitment to good environmental practices.

* Waste – To reduce office waste and strive for a zero-waste policy in all our operations. To recycle waste material where feasible, reuse and reduce our overall consumption of resources.
