Company environmental policy

Coulstock and Place is committed to achieving a performance in environmental practice that will not only fulfil its moral obligations but will endevour to exceed the legal requirements. We comply with the requirements of BS EN 14001: 2004 environmental standards.

Coulstock and Place recognises however, that in its day to day operations we inevitably impact on the environment in a number of ways, and it is committed to avoiding the potentially harmful effects of such activities whenever possible, on its own and in partnership with others.
As part of our continuing drive for quality in all things we do, we have therefore developed a policy which will enable us to set and publish the effects towards a sustainable environmental improvement.  In this way we aim to protect the health and safety of our own people and visitors to the site as well as the local community and environment.

We undertake to help every person at Coulstock and Place to understand and implement the relevant aspects of the policy in their day to day work through the communication and monitoring of objectives.  Coulstock and Place environmental management is based on the principle of achieving and continuously improving environmental performance.

To achieve this Coulstock and Place will:

  • Meet and whenever possible exceed the requirements of all relevant legislation - where no legislation exists we shall endeavour to set our own standards
  • Seek to reduce consumption of materials in our operations, reuse rather than dispose whenever possible and promote recycling and the use of recycled material
  • Reduce where practicable harmful emissions
  • Promote the use of natural refrigerants
  • Work with our suppliers to minimise the impact of their operations on the environment through a quality purchasing policy
  • Keep under review the environmental developments in its business area to identify best practice, and introduce improvements to its operating processes and products where appropriate
  • To provide the co-operation of all employees through consultation, awareness and training
  • Monitor and continually seek to improve performance and publish the results annually
