Sustainability Policy Statement
An accepted definition of sustainable development is “achieving economic growth, environmental protection and social progress at the same time”. Impulse Engineering Ltd is aware of the impact of all its activities and the environment and on communities.
This Policy sets out our approach to managing and mitigating such impacts. Every project, operation or activity will as part of its management routines consider its impact on the environment and communities. These management routines are set up to be cost effective and sustainable.
Our activities impact on the environment and communities through:
- Supply chain employment conditions
- Direct and indirect use of non-renewable carbon fuels for transportation
- Use of scarce/non-renewable raw materials in the supply chains purchases
- Use of harmful materials or high energy consuming processes in the production of the items we purchase
- Transfer & disposal of waste products
- Relationships with local communities where activities take place
- Welfare of staff, visitors, neighbours and other stakeholders
Impulse Engineering Ltd will follow the principles of Reduce, Reuse, Repair and Recycle in managing its environmental impact. Through this policy we expect to not only minimise environmental impacts but also to improve economic performance and comply with all relevant legislation.
Supply Chain Employment Conditions
Impulse Engineering Ltd will take reasonable steps to assess suppliers policies and practices and will not purchase goods or services from a supplier if supply chain employment conditions are found to be unacceptable. Unless there is an overwhelming case for meeting the urgent need.
Use of Energy
Impulse Engineering Ltd seeks to reduce the amount of energy used in its premises. The largest source being electricity which is used for lighting, heating and IT infrastructure. We actively encourage staff participation in energy conservation measures, such as switching lights and equipment off when not needed, that can have significant impact on energy use.
Impulse Engineering Ltd does manage the impact of business and commuter travel when considering road transport. By restricting car travel to necessity trips only and using car sharing or public transport (train) Impulse Engineering Ltd can make savings in CO² emissions and money. Impulse Engineering Ltd manages its vehicles cost effectively to achieve lower emissions.
