Sustainability Policy

C Hanlon (the ‘Organisation’) is a Construction, Electrical, Plumbing and Mechanical organization providing a first class service to all our clients. We recognise the importance of sustainable development and will work with our clients to ensure that our projects meet their sustainability requirements.

Environment

We are committed to continually looking for ways to reduce our impact on the environment and working to prevent pollution. In doing so we pay particular attention to waste minimisation and resource efficiency and ensure we source sustainable materials where practically and economically feasible. We take the Government’s aim to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted very seriously, and we always strive to minimise our own carbon emissions. We have a full operational Environmental Management System and we are currently working to towards achieving the ISO14001 standard.

Our People

We are committed to providing a safe working environment that focuses on the prevention of injury and ill health. We believe that everyone has a role to play in creating a safe working environment for themselves, those they work with and also ensuring that the public are not endangered by any of our activities.

We recognize the value of our employees and work with them to develop their potential and to increase their competence through regular training.

Where possible we recruit our staff locally to support the local economy.

Community

The communities in which we operate can be affected by our projects: however we excel at working in partnership with the local community to mitigate any potential disturbances.

We strive to always interact positively with the communities in which we operate. Effective communication is important so that all those who work for us or on our behalf are aware of their responsibilities to ensure a high standard of environmental and community care is maintained.

Process

We are committed to improving the effectiveness of our management systems in order to provide opportunities to maximise our delivery performance to all stakeholders

Finally we are aware that the livelihoods of our staff and, to some extent, our suppliers and sub-contractors depend on our continued existence. This is best served by our continued commitment to Quality, and to the production of energy efficient, low impact buildings.
