Environmental Policy

Box-it is dedicated to an Environmental Policy which will ensure that its operations meet the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 at all times.

Box-it believes in the concept of Client and supplier working together in pursuing this policy and in continually striving for improvements in environmental performance.

All Box-it employees must have a positive commitment to environmental performance improvement and respond effectively to achieve the standards required of them.

The Environmental Policy is based on four fundamental principles:

  1. The recognition that the Box-it’s operations have an impact on the environment and use resources which are not infinite. We will actively manage our procurement, our use of energy and water, and our waste processes. We are committed to prevent pollution and to conform to legal requirements.
  2. The purpose of environmental management is to consider carefully our processes, including those of our suppliers and the views of our customers, with the objective of reducing the environmental impacts of Box-it.
  3. The Environmental Management System concentrates on prevention of pollution and continual improvement in environmental performance, looking at our processes, identifying the potential for non-compliance, for improvement in the environmental aspects of our operations and taking the necessary action.
  4. The measurement of environmental performance is based on the ‘environmental footprint’ of the company, and will be used as the framework for setting out targets and objectives and a programme to achieve them.

To ensure that the policy is successfully implemented, each member of staff will be responsible for understanding the environmental impact of their job, complying with internal requirements and ensuring that the correct procedures are followed to meet those requirements.

The Environmental Policy involves all employees and the principles and objectives will be communicated and available to all employees and to the public at all times. Assistance and training will be given to employees to ensure the relevant knowledge and experience is acquired for successful implementation of this policy.

The Environmental Management System is closely monitored both internally and by UKAS accredited registration body, Intertek.
