Environment Policy issue 3 (June 2020)

Environment – Sustainability

Jessup is committed to minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.

We have a dedicated team responsible for Health, Safety and the Environment who set out our strategy for ensuring we look after the environment for current and future generations, and then implement the actions required to make that happen, both on site, in our back office, travelling and through our supply chain.

 

The key points of its strategy to achieve this are:

  • Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
  • Minimise toxic emissions through the selection and use of its vehicles and the source of its power requirement.
  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers.
  • Source and promote a product range to minimise the environmental impact of both production and distribution.
  • Jessup, accepts responsibility for the harmful effects its operations have on both the local and global environment and is committed to reducing them.
  • Jessup will comply with all relevant environmental legislation.
  • The Company will implement a training program for its staff to raise awareness of environmental issues and enlist their support in improving the Company’s performance.
  • Jessup will encourage the adoption of similar principles by its suppliers.

Ecology

Based in the beautiful county of Staffordshire, we take pride in protecting the environment and ecology in all the regions where we work and live.

We commission expert ecologists to advise best practice with regard to minimising impacts on the environment, and how to protect local ecology during the construction process and  for the long term.

We regularly provide newt protection, which involves many weeks of work with professional ecologists to survey sites, under specific licence.

We also protect bats, birds, badgers and other small mammals that are identified in surveys, as advised by independent specialists, with bat boxes, bird boxes, bird friendly fencing, tree root/trunk/branch protection, watercourse protection and many more activities that help us to look after the environment.
