Our objectives are to:
o Minimise the energy consumption wherever possible and practical

o Reduce the amount of packaging materials we use
o Recycle all other materials as far as possible
o Source local suppliers wherever practical
o Set up an internal environmental committee to deal with environmental issues

This environmental policy is communicated to all personnel who work for or on behalf of our organisation and is available to the public. Ongoing training and communication programmes ensure employees are aware of the companies and their own environmental responsibilities.
We recognise our responsibility in implementing this policy to meet our environmental objectives and to encourage a continuing dialogue about concern for the environment at all levels within the company.
