At the heart of our business is the important environmental service we provide in dealing with the waste generated by society. We are committed to protecting the local and global environment through responsible and effective management, minimising our negative impacts and maximising opportunities to enhance the local environmental in which we operate. Our goal is to comply with all relevant legislation, to prevent environmental damage and to conserve our natural resources.
Our Management System is accredited to the international standards of environmental management BS ISO 14001, as well as BS ISO 9001 (Quality) and BS OHSAS 18001 (Health & Safety) under the framework guidance of PAS99. The Grundon Environmental Policy outlines our commitment to consider the environmental impact of our operational activities and ensure we manage them effectively.
We enthusiastically support the waste hierarchy and focus our efforts on the reuse and recovery of recyclable material, and the recovery of energy from waste through anaerobic digestion, landfill gas engines and energy from waste incineration.
One of our key commitments is to ensure that we fully comply with all relevant legislation. All of our waste management facilities operate under an Environmental Permit issued by the Environment Agency (EA), who regularly audit our sites to monitor compliance with all the specific conditions that it enforces.
