Environmental Policy

Probrand take environmental issues seriously and have an Environmental Management System in place within the framework of ISO 14001.

Probrand accepts its environmental responsibilities and recognises its obligations to contribute to the resolution of global and local environmental issues by reducing its environmental impacts and taking a leading role in promoting good practice.

  • Complying with all applicable environmental legislation, regulations and other requirements pertaining to our business.
  • Identifying opportunities to reduce any environmental impact of its activities at an early stage and adopt these changes where appropriate.
  • Reduce waste to the lowest practicable level ensuring responsible disposal of waste created and received, undertaking environmental audits and measuring the results against established targets.
  • Employing sound waste management practices to minimise waste produced and maximise re-use or recycle opportunities with full consideration to our duty of care.
  • Employing best practice to maximise the efficient use of resources (energy, fuel, water, packaging and materials, etc).
  • Educating staff on environmental issues and the promotion of individual good practice.
  • Engaging in dialogue with suppliers, distributors and sub-contractors to encourage their participation in environmental best practice.

These commitments will be demonstrated through the maintenance of suitable policies, practices and programmes. Their effectiveness will be monitored and evaluated annually by senior management review.
