Environmental Policy

Weedingtech’s Environmental Policy is to ensure so far as it is reasonably practicable that its operations will be carried out with a commitment to protecting and enhancing the environment. The same commitment will be expected to be shown by contractors working for the company.

This is a fundamental principle of the company’s business.

Weedingtech aims to establish a high priority of its principles in the corporate strategy. Concern and awareness for the environment is the responsibility of the directors of the company.

The company therefore seeks to comply with all relevant environmental legislation and regulation. It also aims to establish higher standards of environmental performance where these are practicable and appropriate.

Weedingtech’s employees have a legal and moral obligation to carry out their duties with concern for the environment. It is a condition of employment that all staff comply with this Environmental Policy.

In the event of an environmental accident or incident at work, it is a company requirement that the details are promptly and properly reported to the directors who will investigate and take prompt action to make good and avoid recurrence.

All contractors working on behalf of the company are required to adopt environmental standards fully consistent with those of the company and they are expected to achieve comparable levels of performance as a condition of their contract.
