Environmental Policy

We will ensure that every aspect of our activities is conducted in accordance with sound environmental practices. We are committed to the continuous improvement of existing and proposed activities with regard to the environment.

We will achieve this by:

  • Maintaining an Environmental Management System as a method of environmental improvements.
  • Communicate the environmental objectives and targets to all employees.
  • Minimising the consumption of natural resources and energy, whilst consuming material goods in moderation.
  • Reducing the creation of waste by the adoption of value engineered design, improved operating practices and by the recycling of materials whenever practical.
  • Ensuring all waste and effluent is disposed of in a safe and responsible manner.
  • Investing in the development of new products and processes that have an improved performance regarding their impact on the environment.
  • Complying with environmental legislation.
  • Provide a framework for reviewing environmental objectives and targets.

Swift Timber Homes aims to foster among its staff, suppliers, customers and communities local to its operation an understanding of environmental issues in the context of its business. Our collective task is to ensure that we continually improve the environmental impact of our total global activities.

The company operates in compliance with all relevant United Kingdom, Environmental Legislation Regulations and Codes of Practice and is committed to do so as these statutes develop over time.

By this policy Swift Timber Homes recognises its responsibility towards protection of the environment, and issues this statement as a commitment of both management and employees to minimising the environmental impact of its operations.
