ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY & COMMITMENT

MANAGING DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

It is timely that we formalise our commitment to the ever increasing importance of matters concerning the environment.

Our particular professional activities predominate in the field of electrical energy utilization, control and its distribution, therefore we must take a leading role in ensuring that the entire chain in the efficient use of resources is foremost in our mind.

In particular, we must not only recognise the ancillary issues concerning the environment such as avoidance of toxic or harmful chemical compounds in equipment we use, proper waste management, recycling and the like, we must also be accountable for the proper selection of equipment, systems and devices that minimise the need for the initial infrastructure raw materials.

This means our focus on efficient utilization of the active systems we install must also parallel that which requires selection of the correct equipment and to ensure that such equipment is sized to meet the reasonable needs of the purpose for which it is to be used.

We will also take greater care in selecting the correct totality of what we need to deliver the required outcome in whatever tasks we undertake.  We shall further ensure that recycling of surplus or redundant materials is implemented not only for the economic benefits that flow from such activity, but more importantly to ensure that the finite resources of the planet are not wasted or plundered.

All employees are encouraged to be personally involved in the continual improvement of the system by identifying environmental issues in the workplace and providing suggestions for their resolution.
