Statement of Intent

2 Cousins Powered Access Ltd recognises the important role it has to play in developing environmental stewardship of staff and equipment and to integrate the principles of sustainability into all activities.

Policy Aims

We expect everyone working for us, or on our behalf, to strive to achieve and maintain the highest standards of environmental performance at all times and to comply fully with this policy and 2 Cousins environmental arrangements.

Senior management will:

  • Ensure compliance with all relevant environmental legislation, regulations, and other requirements as a minimum;
  • Promote efficient use of materials and resource service intervals with regard to water, electricity, raw materials, and other resources;
  • Avoid unnecessary use of hazardous materials and products, seek substitutions when feasible, and take all reasonable steps to protect human health and the environment when such materials must be used, stored, and disposed of;
  • Where required by legislation, or where significant health, safety or environmental hazards exist, develop and maintain appropriate emergency and spill response programmes;
  • Reduce waste production and promote resource efficiency;
  • 2 Cousins is committed to the protection of the environment. This includes the prevention of pollution by managing and reducing emissions to air and discharges to water, the use of sustainable resources, measures to mitigate the effect of climate change, and the protection of biodiversity and ecosystems;
  • Manage and reduce water consumption where possible;
  • Promote environmental awareness among our employees and encourage them to work in an environmentally responsible manner, recycling where possible;
  • Strive to continually improve our environmental performance and minimise the social impact and damage of activities by periodically reviewing current and planned future activities.

This policy will be communicated to all employees and organisations working on our behalf and displayed at our offices and on our intranet. This policy is available to defined interested parties.

This policy will be reviewed annually or sooner by senior management to ensure its suitability. Where necessary it will be amended, reissued, and communicated to all employees and people working on its behalf.
