We can’t avoid our business having some impact on the environment, but we do all we can to minimise any negative effects. We are committed to reduce waste, increase recycling, reduce pollution and our carbon footprint, and increase the use of eco-friendly, sustainable products. We comply with all relevant environmental legislation, regulations and approved codes of practice, and:
