Smith & Arner® are committed to protecting the environment, both now and for the future. Paramount to this is the on-going communication between our clients, suppliers and site management to develop environmental solutions to comply with current and any forthcoming legislative changes.
It is Smith & Arner®’s policy to proactively look for new initiatives to minimize the adverse effects of incidents such as the spillage of chemicals, improper disposal of waste, unnecessary emissions to water and the atmosphere and noise pollution.
Training programmes are in place to ensure that all management and supervisory staff use the correct equipment, procedures and working practices and are aware of the environmental implications of the tasks connected with the needs of the client.
Smith & Arner® purchase recycled or paper products from sustainable sources and are updated regularly from studies carried out on the environmental impact of paper products, electric dryers, chemical usage and disposal of chemicals.
Sub contractors are expected to operate to the same high environmental standards and are strictly vetted and audited accordingly.
Smith & Arner® are committed to working with suppliers who ensure that their manufacturing and packaging procedures produce environmentally friendly products and as a result have affiliated itself with suppliers who support our efforts.
We believe that it is essential for our quality of life now and that of future generations to protect and maintain the environment to the best of our ability. Only by continuous commitment and education can we make a major contribution to the way we live.
