Environmental Policy – the Do’s and Don’ts
An Environmental Policy can help you demonstrate to customers, employees and the public your environmental best practice. There are three key commitments you should include; prevention of pollution, legislative compliance and continual improvement. Keep it short (one 1 side of A4 is fine), get management sign-off and avoid fluffy, non-committal language! Read our policy.
