In pursuance of our stated commitment to prevent local environmental issues, which are referred to as local considerations, we have adopted ‘Local Considerations Policy’. Whilst we have always sought to minimise all forms of local environmental issues and have always worked within any relevant regulatory frameworks relating to such issues, we recognise that we have a moral and social duty to do everything we can to prevent the lives of local households and businesses being adversely affected by our activities.

Our policy aims to be supported by a range of actions and improvements through which those aims are to be achieved.

  • We aim to gain a full and detailed understanding of each site’s potential to create local environmental issues.
  • We aim to continue our current efforts to eliminate or minimise our potential for causing local environmental issues.
  • We will continue to be fully committed to our statutory and voluntary obligations relating to local environmental issues.
