Greenford acknowledge that their actions can and do affect the environment, in particular our work on canals and rivers. By the nature of our operations, we are already committed to quality and safety. It is a natural extension of this commitment that our customers are concerned that Greenford recognise the importance of the natural and built environment.
Greenford share these concerns and endeavour to maintain the highest standards during all our operations as follows:
Comply with all legal requirements, regulations and standards.
Liaise with the local community to achieve acceptable solutions wherever possible.
Plan and execute to minimise the effects of noise, dust, other pollution and disturbance, and inconvenience to those affected by its operations.
Where there is an opportunity, influence the customer to adopt cost effective environmentally positive solutions.
Ensure that the company premises and areas accessible to the public are clean and tidy at all times.
Actively encourage greater use of those consumable items which can be recycled or reused.
Recognise the importance of training and education of employees about environmental issues.
Monitor and continually seek improved performance and awareness.
We have a responsible purchasing policy and recycle using our own facilities at our head office in Oxford.
