Environmental Policy Statement
COMPANY ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY STATEMENT
British Drilling and Freezing Company Limited (BDF) is a company whose principal business is drilling and ground freezing. BDF fully recognises the need to take account of all environmental aspects and impacts of its operations, both in the general interest of the environment and for the continuing success of its business.
BDF also recognises that environmental issues are an integral and important part of its business objectives, and the need to improve on a continuing basis, ensuring that good environmental control measures are necessary to sustain and protect the environment and also maintain BDF’s reputation as a responsible company, and enhance the Clients reputation as appropriate.
It is, therefore, the policy of BDF to ensure that all of its operations are managed and conducted, in such a way, as to ensure that environmental aspects are maintained as a line activity; for which employees at all levels are responsible.
All Directors and Managers within the business must ensure that all operations:-
- meet relevant local, national and international statutory environmental requirements, and where this is achievable within economic cost, exceed such requirements so as to minimise any impact on the physical environment.
- are documented, implemented and maintained and communicated to all employees and contractors (service providers).
Additionally, BDF is committed to:
- working towards meeting the requirements of ISO 14001.
- setting company environmental standards for specific activities where applicable.
- review its environmental performance on current operations, and where appropriate, ensure that, where, improvement measures are introduced they are fully disseminated throughout the business.
- assess the potential environmental impact of all new operations, developments and acquisitions and identify and deploy mitigation measures where appropriate.
The environmental policy will be reviewed, at intervals not exceeding 12 months or, if necessary at interim dates as requested by the Managing Director or changes in legislation.
