Our environmental policy

Introduction

Boss Controls is committed to minimising the environmental impact of its business operations.

We recognise that good environmental practice must be an integral and fundamental part of our business practices and it is our aim to comply with current legislation and operate in an environmentally responsible manner.
Our employees, while carrying out their roles within the company, should manage waste from their business operations by working to the principle of reduction, re-use and recycling. All equipment and materials should be used wisely and help to reduce wastage wherever possible. All non-confidential waste should be recycled within the bins provided, electrical equipment not in use should be turned off, with heating and lighting used efficiently to prevent wastage.
Our Commitment

Our commitment is to:

  • Minimise the impact of our operations on the environment by evaluating our operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible
  • Look to continuously improve our environmental performance and integrate environmental best practice into all business operations
  • Reduce our consumption and improve the efficient use of resources, particularly those that are scarce or non-renewable
  • Minimise the waste generated from our business operations according to the principle of reduce, re-use and recycle
  • Waste that is not practicable to recycle will be disposed of through safe and responsible methods
  • Ensure environmental issues are taken into consideration in the procurement of goods and services, purchasing locally where possible
  • Comply as a minimum with all relevant environmental legislation
  • Help our employees to understand the important role they play in protecting the environment
To meet our commitments we will:
  • Ensure the importance of good environmental practices is communicated to our employees
  • Encourage and promote appropriate environmental laws and regulations
  • Share our environmental knowledge and experience to promote improved environmental performance
  • Enlist the support of all employees, management, suppliers and clients encouraging suggestions and feedback on our environmental performance
  • Keep informed on global environmental trends and issues
Waste reduction
We have the potential to produce a great deal of waste paper. By cutting down on the amount of paper used we not only have a positive impact upon the environment but we also save on business costs at the same time. To assist in the prevention of waste we:
We think before we print
  • Wherever possible use the duplex facility on printers and multi functional equipment
  • Re-use scrap paper for notes
  • Don’t use bleached paper – consider use of recycled paper
We promote recycling
  • We think before we bin it!
  • We make recycling part of everyday life in the workplace
Energy

Energy

Boss Controls uses electricity and water to service its premises. As well as the obvious financial implications, the use of these also has an impact upon the environment. We will, wherever possible, look to decrease its use of these resources and improve its management of the utilities by the implementation of energy efficiency measures.

Transport
 Transport is a significant – and growing – cause of carbon emissions. Our business is reliant upon travel as part of our service to our clients and we are aware of the impact that all travel has upon the environment from carbon emissions. Our employees are therefore encouraged to:
  • Book several appointments in the same area on the same day
  • Use methods of transport with less environmental impact, minimise wasted journeys by checking attendance with prospective clients
  • Drive their vehicles more efficiently
  • Use local suppliers where possible for stationery and materials
  • Boss Controls is currently investigating and setting up a WEEE
  • Disposal policy which will be incorporated into our policies and procedures shortly.
