Joinery Workshop Environmental Policy
This environmental policy is for a joinery or woodworking workshop, or manufacturer/installer. An environmental policy can demonstrate your company’s written commitment to the people within your organisation and your customers and suppliers that you take environmental matters seriously.
This Joinery Workshop Environmental Policy confirms your company's commitment to continuous improvement in managing environmental issues, including the proper management and monitoring of waste, the reduction of pollution and emissions and compliance with environmental legislation and environmental codes of practice.
Some of the many Environmental Regulations include:
- Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011
- The Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005
- The Environment Act 1990
- The Control of Pollution (Amendment) Act 1989
The first step towards your commitment is to create an environmental policy. This should have specific and achievable goals, and be clearly written for your target audience of your staff, suppliers, customers and, where relevant, the general public.
This policy has been written specifically for those companies who manufacture bespoke joinery, either for supply or to install at the customers’ premises.
The policy covers such matters as how the company will dispose of waste off-cuts, saw-dust and shavings, empty stain, varnish, cleaning liquid and paint tins and the brushes, paper towels and cloths used. It also considers how the business chooses the ‘greenness’ of its products and transportation efficiency.
Once written, this environmental policy must be signed by the most senior director/partner in your business to demonstrate that it is a company policy. The policy should also be reviewed at regular intervals, normally annually, along with your health and safety policies.
This Joinery Workshop Environmental Policy is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
