Manforce Security believes in its corporate moral responsibility to help ensure the future of planetary resources and environmental conditions. Our aim, by selection, use and disposal of material conditions. Our aim, by selection, use and disposal of material and services, is to achieve best value from all our assets by reducing the amount of material purchased, choosing suppliers for their record on manufacturing from sustainable resources and minimising waste by reuse and recycling wherever practicable. In concluding appropriate measures to prevent pollution and waste free system, we will consult with both enforcement and advisory bodies to ensure legal compliance.
We set out to achieve this policy by including a culture of conservation and recovery; the following are areas where we are working hardest. The clear objective of AIS is to minimise any impact on the environment by
- Preventing pollution, reducing waste and ensuring, wherevern practicable, that measures are implemented to protect and preserve natural habitats, flora and fauna
- Considering the effects that our operations may have on the local community
- Taking action to eliminate or reduce, as far as practicable, any potentially adverse environmental impacts
- Promoting environmental awareness amongst our suppliers, contractors and partners by implementation of operational procedures
- Seeking to work in partnership with the community by behaving in a considerate and socially responsible manner
- Ensuring effective and expedient incident control, investigation and reporting.
We centralise our procurement to ensure, among other things, compliance with our environmental policy both in suppliers and the supplied materials. We purchase, wherever possible, from suppliers who accede to environmentally friendly methods of work, offer material from sustainable resource and provide recyclable or recycled materials.
When offering services to clients, environmentally friendly systems are considered as first options.
Managers are encouraged to reduce the amounts of material held and used, and to investigate alternatives that comply with the environmental policy for example to reduce packaging materials. We maintain our equipment at
optimum working levels to reduce pollution and prolong life.
AIS will fully comply with the duties placed upon it within the requirements of legislation, whilst at all times complying with, as a matter of best practice, the requirements and duties set out within Approved Guidance as issued by the Environment Agency and other organisations. As part of the company’s commitment to maintaining the highest levels of environmental management, it is the intention that the company will work towards environmental management systems compliant with ISO14001.
AIS will take all practical steps to ensure that potential hazards and risks to the environment are identified and that suitable and effective preventive and control measures are implemented. All employees will be provided with
the necessary resources, equipment, information, instruction and training to fulfil the requirements of this policy.
We establish waste handling and disposal agreements with sub-contractors who can demonstrate not only compliance with current legislation but also an understanding of the philosophy of the reduction of waste by reuse and recycling. We insist on carriage and disposal methods that maintain the aims of our environmental policy.
We separate waste wherever possible to permit reuse and recycling options both in our office and contract situation. We seek to conserve energy and, where possible, we implement energy saving systems.
Through membership of many trade and professional bodies, we constantly seek alternatives to existing systems that will enhance our compliance with our general policy to achieve best value from our resources whilst removing or reducing harm to the environment from our operations to help achieve our commitment to continual improvement.
The directors have overall responsibility for all environmental matters. The operation of this policy and the associated procedures will be monitored and reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that they remain current and applicable to the company’s activities. This policy has been endorsed by the board of directors which gives its full support to its implementation.
