ASM Environmental Policy

ASM Group will lead by example in its own activities through the commitment to its Environmental Strategy and will aim to minimise the impacts of its activities to the environment.

We will continuously develop new strategy and incorporate new methods to improve it as far as possible. ASM Group will ensure that environmental priorities are integrated into the decisions it takes on all its services and will seek whenever it has a regulatory or influential role to:

  • make the most efficient use of energy;
  • reduce the need for movement of both people and goods and encourage walking, cycling and the use of public transport as alternatives to the private car;
  • minimise and where possible, eliminate, all forms of pollution;
  • avoid waste and encourage the appropriate conservation, re-use and recycling of resources;
  • protect, restore and enhance the diversity of the District's wildlife and countryside;
  • conserve and enhance the character and quality of the District's built environment;
  • avoid environmental damage by assessing and monitoring environmental impacts rather than responding to them afterwards;
  • promote a sense of responsibility and understanding for the environment and participation in environmental issues, by raising staff awareness, by education, information provision and open consultation with the local community;
  • work in partnership with our contractors, suppliers and others to comply with all regulatory requirements at a local, national, European and international level and to encourage continuous improvement in environmental performance and practices;
  • review and where possible, improve our performance each year with positive action an any areas of non-compliance.
