SPM recognises the responsibilities placed on it by the relevant environmental legislation and regulations on the nature, scale and environmental impacts of its activities, products and services.
Everyone is committed to take all reasonable steps to ensure that we comply with local legislation and local requirements including a commitment to continued improvement and prevention of pollution. We recognise that statutory obligations and regulations are accepted as minimum requirements only. In order to meet its environmental objectives SPM will provide sufficient resources of time, personnel and finance.
It is also the policy of the company to provide information, training and supervision to its workforce in pursuance of these objectives and to do everything reasonably practicable to ensure its subcontractors provide similar resources and arrangements. It is the duty of all personnel (including suppliers, subcontractors and visitors) to take all reasonable precautions to improve our environmental performance by preventing pollution, reducing waste, minimising hazardous waste, and recycling waste as much as possible. Our legal and moral responsibilities to the environment dictate that we must know and comply with the environmental regulations and the impact of our operations on the environment. The content of this policy is made available to all SPM employees, sub-contractors, self-employed personnel and other interested parties in order to achieve compliance.
To SPM the “environment” is more than how we manage our impact on the natural world. We are also focused on providing a quality work environment for our people. Our aim is for all our workplaces to be healthy, positive and productive environments for our people, regardless of location.
