Environmental Policy for Vehicle Servicing and Repairs Business

Automotive Workshop Environmental Policy

HS.ST.01.20

This environmental policy is for an automotive workshop – a business that carries out repairs or servicing to cars, lorries or bikes. It is your company’s written commitment to the people within your organisation and your customers and suppliers that you take environmental matters seriously.  

This Automotive 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, 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 the target audience of your staff, suppliers, customers and, where relevant, the general public.

This policy has been written specifically for those companies who carry out repairs or servicing to cars, lorries etc., whether at a workshop or using a van to do the work at the customers’ premises.

The policy covers such matters as how the company will dispose of waste oils or lubricants, and how they will recycle worn or broken mechanical parts, paper towels and tyres. The policy also covers how you select the ‘greenness’ of the products you use.

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 Automotive Workshop Environmental Policy is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
