Protecting the local and global environment

At the heart of our business is the important environmental service we provide in dealing with the waste generated by society.

Our commitment

We are committed to protecting the local and global environment through responsible and effective management, minimising any negative impact and maximising opportunities to enhance the local environment in which we operate.

We comply with all relevant legislation, guidance and best practices to ensure we minimise our impact on the environment and conserve natural resources.

Our approach

Our Integrated Management System is accredited to the international standards of BS ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental Management) and BS ISO 50001:2011 (Energy Management), under the framework guidance of PAS99:2012.

The Grundon Environmental & Energy 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 materials and the recovery of energy from waste through anaerobic digestion, landfill gas engines and Energy from Waste incineration.

Our performance

Every year at Grundon we measure, monitor and manage, setting annual targets and using the indicators to help understand and mitigate the environmental impact of our operations. By doing so, we can develop future strategies and demonstrate our performance and progress to all stakeholders.

Compliance

One of our key commitments is to ensure that we fully comply with all relevant legislation. All our waste management facilities operate under Environmental Permits issued by the Environment Agency, which monitors our sites for compliance.
