Policy

Seetec recognises that sound business management must take into account the effects of its business on the environment and we are committed to conducting our business in an environmentally responsible manner.

Our senior management, environmental management team and employees have a responsibility for the environment and sustainability, which we will endeavour to influence, incorporate and promote within our operations and the services we provide.

We are committed to complying with applicable legal and other requirements to achieve high standards of sustainable development in all areas of our business. We continually seek to ensure that our activities are carried out with minimal impact on the environment and to enhance the environment wherever possible and are committed to the prevention of pollution.

Seetec encourages any partnership of stakeholders, including community, supply chain partners, suppliers, customers, and employees to be accountable for the impact of their actions upon the environment, and by setting annual targets, to strive for continual improvement.

Our policy is to develop, maintain, monitor and implement policies, procedures and management systems which assess and minimise the environmental impact of its operations, particularly in relation to:

  • Materials usage
  • Chemical discharges and emissions
  • Waste management
  • Energy management
  • Logistics management

Progress in meeting our sustainable development objectives will be communicated regularly in Management meetings, the Employee Forum and newsletters and also cascaded to our Supply chain partners.

Sustainable Development Management

Seetec’s daily business encompasses a wide range of processes from the sourcing of products to the delivery of services. The three principal elements of this activity most likely to impact on the environment are:

  • Materials use whether for the products we sell or distribute or for the use of maintenance materials within our training centres.
  • Waste management including waste arising from materials used within Seetec, such as office waste and the disposal of end of life products and waste generated by clients on placements / work experience projects.
  • Energy consumption is a consequence of any business activity. This includes fuel use for transportation as well as for heating and lighting.

Sustainable Development Team

The Sustainable Development Team is responsible for driving forward this work. The Team consists of key staff who have a major influence over business activities and include:

  • Chief Executive
  • Head of SSHE & FM
  • Marketing Projects Manager
  • Health, Safety & Environment Officer
  • Financial Accountant
  • Human Resources
  • Facilities Manager

The overall objective of the Team is to improve and sustain Seetec’s operations for the benefit of all, both now and for future generations, recognising the links between the environment, employability and skills services and the development of an inclusive society.
