Environment

The very nature of our business means we are constantly remediating land and we are ever mindful of the impact modern development can have on our environment. We do everything we can on all our projects to support the environment, whether it be the kind of materials we are supplying or the way we work. We have an excellent track record in this area.


Environmental Policy Statement

Merriman Limited acknowledges its contribution, as a consumer of resources, to the growing global environmental burden and recognises its responsibility to future generations by undertaking business practices that promote sustainable development.

Our Environmental Policy should earn the confidence of our employees, shareholders, customers and the general public by demonstrating our commitment to comply with relevant environmental legislation and minimise pollution, resource use and waste through the continual improvement of performance in all areas of the Company.

Merriman Limited recognises the need to operate in a manner that reflects good environmental management. To this end we will:

  • Consistently increase the awareness and provide necessary training to all our employees and customers to ensure environmentally responsible concepts are integrated into their normal working practices.
  • Use products that have a negligible environmental impact, where appropriate options exist.
  • Reduce our consumption of resources (energy, materials, packaging).
  • Minimise waste through a commitment to reuse or recycle, where feasible.
  • Identify routes for the storage, transfer and disposal of controlled waste under Duty of Care.
  • Regularly monitor and review our environmental performance.

It is our duty to ensure that good environmental management is practised in all projects that we are involved in and we will seek to influence customers to demonstrate a positive environmental commitment. The Company will communicate the Environmental Policy to all company employees, and it will be freely available to customers, shareholders and the general public.

All Directors, Managers, Supervisors and Foremen will enforce this policy. The Managing Director is personally responsible for the environmental performance of the Company and signs this policy statement in acknowledgement of this.
