- Encourage the design of energy efficiency into new services, buildings and products and promote wise energy management in all operations.
- Promote the reduction in the level of harmful emissions.
- Promote the marketing of products that are safe to use, make efficient use of resources, and are capable of being reused, recycled or disposed of safely.
- Encourage suppliers to minimise the impact of their operations on the environment and promote the adoption of purchasing policies aligned to this objective.
- Encourage the location of buildings, structures and operational plant so as to minimise visual, noise and other impacts on the local environment.
- Ensure that its environmental policy is monitored and reviewed regularly by the Board and that the policy is communicated to and, with appropriate education and training, understood and implemented by its employees.
