Policy - It is our goal to conduct the whole of our operation in an environmentally responsible manner, by consistently reducing the environmental impact of our activities in line with sound business practice. Quadron will at all times take all reasonable precautions to safeguard the environment and protect the health of human beings, creatures and plants.
We commit to reducing our carbon footprint, in particular by reducing the main cause of climate change, CO2 emissions, and to contribute towards sustainable development taking into account local priorities in accordance with Agenda 21.
ISO 14001 - Quadron has an Environmental Management System (EMS) in place and is accredited to BS EN ISO 14001:2004 across the company. Contract managers are currently undergoing training to cover the first three phases of BS 8555. Induction training includes making staff aware of those environmental and geological issues which are affected by their work so that they perform their duties in a way that minimises impact on the environment.
Training - All managers are undertaking CIEH Level 2 in Environmental Principles and Best Practice and all staff undertake Quadron's Environmental Awareness E-Learning module during their induction.
Performance Measurement - Key Performance Indicators and targets are set and measured monthly, in consultation with each client.
Sustainable Procurement - All materials used are wherever possible from environmentally friendly and sustainable sources, as local as possible to the site of use, with minimum packaging and from recycled materials wherever viable. Alternative fuels are sought, the use of pesticides actively minimised and composting material used from green waste recycling schemes.
Quadron works closely with its Clients and local interest groups to ensure its operations are sensitive to local biodiversity issues.
Local on-site composting, reusing and recycling materials are key elements of our environmental policy.
Bedding out with reusable pots, water harvesting and reducing the use of pesticides all feature in our green operational plans.
Electric vehicles, LPG mowers, staff bicycles and reducing the need for travelling contribute to our innovations for reducing air pollution.
