Apex - Working hard to improve the environment



Our policy is to

* Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
* Develop and promote a product range which minimises the environmental impact of both our production and distribution, whilst minimising optimal use of renewable resources.

* As far as possible purchase products and services that do the least damage to the environment and encourage others to do the same.
* Minimise our waste and then reuse or recycle as much of it as possible.
* Minimise energy and water usage in our buildings, vehicles and processes in order to conserve supplies, and minimise our consumption of natural resources, especially where they are non-renewable.
* Operate and maintain company vehicles with due regard to environmental issues as far as reasonably practical and encourage the use of alternative means of transport and car sharing as appropriate.
* Apply the principles of continuous improvement in respect of air, water, noise and light pollution from our premises and reduce any impacts from our operations on the environment and local community.
* Assess the environmental impact of any new processes or products we intend to introduce in advance.


Our commitment


We at Apex International UK Ltd believe that all businesses are responsible for achieving good environmental practice and operating in a sustainable manner.  We are committed to continuous environmental improvement, leading the industry in minimising the impact our activities have on the environment.


We will strive to continually improve our environmental performance as an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods.  This touches everything we do, from how we run our offices and manage our teams, to how we develop, manufacture and supply our products and services to our customers. We are working hard to enhance and develop pro-active initiatives that are designed to reduce our impact on the environment and the communities in which we work.


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.


To facilitate this we will


* Communicate on the environment with employees, promoting co-operation and good communication at all levels within the company, ensuring that all employees understand our environmental policy and conform to the high standards it requires.
* Seek to influence both our customers and suppliers to adopt a more positive approach to environmental matters, and actively promote recycling both internally and amongst our customers and suppliers.
* Wholly support and comply with or exceed the requirements of current environmental legislation and codes of practice.
