GWR recognises its sustainability obligations to its staff, visitors, communities and partners and to present and succeeding generations.
We aim to take a leading role in defining best sustainability practice and will set our own appropriate and demanding standards where none exist.
GWR are committed to implementing the requirements of all relevant sustainability legislation and regulations and, where possible, exceeding any relevant minimum requirements.
GWR will manage activities over which it has control and which impact upon its various ‘environments’ in accordance with the principles of sustainable development.
GWR aims to raise the sustainability awareness of its staff, visitors, customers and partners by promoting the concept of sustainable development and by openly recognising the on-going need to move towards a more sustainable future.
GWR will monitor its use of natural resources, both non-renewable and renewable, and maximise the efficiency and effectiveness with which they are used, with a view to minimising environmental impacts.
GWR will provide appropriate sustainability training and development for its staff, and will encourage them to apply sound sustainability practices at work, at home and within the wider community.
GWR is committed to transparency in, and public access, to the formulation and implementation of its Sustainability Policy and objectives. We will formulate, publish, implement and monitor objectives set out in the overall Policy, and will periodically review their efficiency and promote their continued development.
The Sustainability Policy of Great Western Recycling will be applicable to all its activities and across all its sites.
