This policy focuses City Energy Network’s continuing commitment for achieving good environmental practice and operating in a sustainable and energy efficient manner.
Our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance forms as an integral and fundamental part of our business plan and operating methods.
It is our priority to encourage our customers, suppliers and all business associates to do the same. Not only is this sound commercial sense for all; it is also a matter of delivering on our duty of care towards future generations.
- Overall responsibility for the policy lies with the Board of Directors alongside the Senior Management Team (“SMT”)
- The SMT and the Directors are responsible for assigning the review of legislative and regulatory requirements as appropriate whereby the evaluation of compliance will also be driven by changes to underlying legislation.
- The oversight of the policy and its objectives is assigned to the Compliance Manager.
Promoting a broader environmental and sustainability agenda is integral to City Energy’s professional activities and the management of the organisation. We recognise the environment and our impact on it as essential components for our business purpose and performance.
We are committed to continuous and effective improvements whilst at the same time complying as a minimum with appropriate legislation, regulation and any other requirements that we subscribe to. As part of our commitment to continual improvement we shall consistently set and monitor measurable objectives and targets consistent with this policy and in a manner which prevents pollution and reduces the Company’s carbon footprint.
City Energy Network supports the safeguarding of the environment within which we provide our products and services, and to the conservation of the environmental wellbeing of the population of that environment. Therefore, we are committed to minimising any adverse impacts to the environment resulting from the products and services that we offer.
To further support the conservation of the environment by reducing the country’s overall carbon footprint, City Energy commits to support Government flagship initiatives involving the Green Deal, Energy Company Obligation and Renewable Energy solutions.
The Company is committed to achieving its objectives and targets by the use of procedures which will be operated to meet the requirements of BS EN ISO 14001:2015 and the Specification for Organisations delivering the Green Deal Advice Service Version 005/2014.
We will review our strategies, policies, procedures, objectives and targets pertaining to this policy at least every three years, earlier if deemed necessary, in order to assess their continued suitability and support their continued improvement.
We will keep all employees, contractors and other relevant stakeholders informed by handing out this policy with the intention of ensuring their awareness of individual obligations with regards to environmental aspects. This policy forms part of the employee induction which is provided at the commencement of employment, signed for by the employee and updated periodically. This policy will also be available on our website.
This policy supports the Integrated Management Policy and the IMS in its documentation, implementation and maintenance.
