SSCL Environmental Policy

Shared Services Connected Limited (SSCL) recognises that concern for the environment should be an integral and fundamental part of business operations. SSCL is aware of the impact of day-to-day operations on the environment. It is SSCL’s objective to balance and align the need to achieve business aims whilst delivering sustainable environmental improvement, which can be measured and monitored on a regular basis.

Responsibility and Organisation
The SSCL Senior Management team has specific responsibility for policy development, coordination and evaluation of performance against policy objectives. The environmental policy will be maintained and upheld by the designated SSCL managers as a demonstration of our commitment to the requirements of environmental management. Environmental aspects of SSCL processes and activities will be effectively managed in order to protect the health and safety of employees, customers and the public whilst contributing to the future wellbeing of the environment and maintaining business strategies.

SSCL will provide the necessary training and support to employees so that they understand and are able to fulfil the relevant aspects of the policy in their day-to-day work. The policy shall be publicly displayed. SSCL is committed to minimising the impact of all operations on the environment by means of a programme of continual improvement. Appropriate resources will be made available and a programme of audit and review will be undertaken to ensure that the environmental policy is implemented effectively and in full.

SSCL’s commitment to environmental management is underpinned by the following principles:

• to set clear objectives linking into SSCL’s environmental aspects, associated compliance obligations and considering risks and opportunities with the aim of ensuring continual improvement of the company's environmental performance and management system
• to conduct delivery operations in a way that ensures adherence to relevant compliance obligations that SSCL conforms to
• to demonstrate a continual commitment to the prevention of pollution through the use of operational controls, training and risk assessment
• to make efficient use of resources through effective procurement, to reuse rather than dispose of where possible and to promote the use of sustainable resources
• to improve waste management and reduce waste sent to landfill where possible
• to continually aim to minimize energy consumption through effective energy management
• to reduce, wherever practical, the level of uncontrolled atmospheric emissions
• to manage and control effluent discharges arising from all operations.
