Importance of Managing Environmental Impact in Business

As a business there are many ways you can employ sustainable practices to help fulfil your duty of care to protect the environment and future generations. 

Environmentally friendly business practices can be a whole lot easier to implement than you may think, and can even come with benefits such as saving money on business costs and boosting your brand image.

Here at Safetynet Solutions we are committed to reducing our environmental impact, and continually improving our environmental performance. 

Benefits of Good Environmental Policy

One of the main benefits of having good environmental policy is that you can help do your part to protect and preserve our planet. However, there are also so many great benefits for your business itself! 

Cost Savings – taking an environmentally aware approach to how you operate can also mean reducing money spent on certain products, allowing you to save costs while also supporting energy efficiency. Unfortunately being environmentally sustainable does not always mean saving money, but it does reduce costs in the long run in a wide range of different ways, such as power bills and wasteful products. 

Business Reputation – Being socially responsible in your business activities can make a huge impression on your customers and client base. This can be an asset to your branding, and help you sustain good business relationships with others. 

Resource Recovery – Reusing and recycling your resources can not only help you save on costs, but it can also be profitable for you and your business! 

Work Health & Safety – By taking an environmentally friendly approach to business, you will most likely be reducing the quantity of harmful chemicals and waste materials you have. This can help to improve the overall work health and safety of your organisation. 

Legal Compliance – keeping up with your legal obligations is an important part of running any business, and often you will need to meet certain environmental protection laws in order to remain compliant. 

Our Commitment 

We like to encourage our customers, suppliers and all business associates to include environmental policies as a fundamental part of their business strategy and operating methods. 

Our policy is to:

  • Wholly support and comply with or exceed the requirements of current environmental legislation and codes of practice.
  • Minimise our waste and then reuse or recycle as much of it as possible.
  • Minimise energy and water usage in our buildings, vehicles and processes in order to conserve supplies, and minimise our consumption of natural resources, especially where they are non-renewable.

  • Apply the principles of continuous improvement in respect of air, water, noise and light pollution from our premises and reduce any impacts from our operations on the environment and local community.
  • As far as possible purchase products and services that do the least damage to the
    environment and encourage others to do the same.
  • Assess the environmental impact of any new processes or products we intend to introduce in advance.
