Health, Safety and Environment
We expect the highest of ethical standards from our people. Our policies and procedures support our aim of acting with integrity in all aspects of our operations.
We maintain data covering health and safety matters as well as progress in fulfilling targets linked to continuous improvement and promoting a wider awareness of Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) issues. As an important part of our HSE plan, we are developing a health and safety training programme for our offices, which include also a “First Aid” training to people assigned as health officers. The plan reflects our intention to have all our employees work in an office based environment which result in a low eco-footprint.
We believe that we are taking appropriate steps to contribute to sound environmental practices, covering positive measures to establish and build on good working practices within our offices including actions in achieving efficiencies and reductions in energy (electricity) and water consumption as well as waste management. We remain committed to continuous improvement in the recycling of spent materials in our offices. Our people are actively encouraged to support such initiatives. Waste bins are segregated into categories of recyclable materials and suitable waste bins have been located in common areas. Paper recycling and other office consumables are included in our recycling program.
We have long been committed to optimising the use of ‘greener’ materials in our offices. We continue to work with suppliers in using products which meet high standards as regards minimising the use of hazardous substances and are environmentally friendlier.
We recognise the importance of ensuring that our key suppliers have appropriate policies and practices on social, environmental and ethical matters.
We organise occasionally activities that relate to environmental issues depending on yearly plans.
We reaffirm our commitment in taking steps to mitigate against the risks relating to health, safety and environmental responsibilities.
