It is the policy of Burst Digital to conduct its operations within the framework of its ISO 9001 Quality Management System in an environmentally responsible manner.
Burst Digital will ensure that in satisfying its customers’ requirements both the goods supplied and our own housekeeping comply with the relevant environmental legislation and the various EC Directives. Resources will be allocated to meet good standards of commercial practice.
This will be achieved by: –
1. Publishing, maintaining and issuing to all staff a Waste Disposal Procedure. This procedure will:
- Identify all waste types generated by the business
- Instruct staff of the correct procedure that must be undertaken to ensure that we meet our legal responsibilities.
- Identify the waste contractor appointed to process each waste stream.
Failure by staff to adhere to the Waste Disposal Procedure is misconduct and could result in dismissal.
2. Having current, accurate information about the environmental impact of our production processes, the packaging we use and the distribution methods of the finished goods we supply.
3. Promoting environmental awareness among our employees and encouraging them to work in an environmentally responsible manner.
4. Training, educating and informing our employees about environmental issues that may affect their work,
5. Reduce waste through re-use and recycling and by purchasing recycled, recyclable or re-furbished products and materials where these alternatives are available, economical and suitable.
6. Promoting efficient use of materials and resources throughout our business including water, electricity, raw materials and other resources, particularly those that are non-renewable,
7. Actively encouraging our suppliers to provide goods with the minimum adverse environmental impact; and where commercial consideration allow, giving preference to such suppliers
8. Maintain appropriate emergency and spill response programmes,
9. Continuing to develop systems for the environmental management of all activities and maintain best practice.
