Environment Policy

Environment Policy

Policy Objectives

The DFP Environment Policy aims to integrate a philosophy of sustainable development into all our business activities and establish and promote sound environmental practice in our operations. We aspire to minimise impact on our environment and maximise the effective use of resources. We strive to achieve this by increasing communication and awareness of our efforts in accordance with this policy and fostering responsible environmental behaviour amongst our employees at all levels.

Policy Guidelines

Our key principles for achieving our objectives include:

  • Developing a systematic approach to environmental issues to ensure compliance with the law and achieve performance improvement. This includes regular audits, appraisals and reporting of performance in line with our ISO 9001:2008 quality management system.

  • Working to manage our own operations and physical assets in an environmentally responsible manner. This incorporates efficient use of materials and energy to provide our services. We aim to minimise waste generation through ‘recycle, reuse and reduce’. We also aim to identify and manage excessive energy consumption.

  • Working with suppliers who promote sound environmental practices. This includes using, where appropriate environmental criteria in the selection of suppliers.

  • Helping clients identify, assess and reduce environmental risks. Using a hazard analysis to evaluate environmental and health risks to our staff on client sites.

  • Enhancing awareness among our employees, temporary and contract staff - educating and motivating them to act in an environmentally responsible manner. This includes the development of clear guidelines for our workforce to adopt sound environmental work practices both in our workplace and our client’s workplace, then providing adequate training to ensure these practices are carried out.

Continuous Improvement

Continuous improvement will occur by:

  • Periodically reviewing our Environment Policy and practices in order to improve operational and environmental performance

  • Learning from best practice examples of environmental management and being responsive to government principles and community issues.

  • Integrating environmental awareness in planning and employee communications and training, and

  • Promoting a culture in which all DFP employees share this commitment.
