Environmental Policy Statement

Treeworks Moray is an environmentally responsible organisation and as such we acknowledge the potential impact that our tree surgery and felling operations may have on the environment.

This policy is endorsed by the owner who gives his full support to its implementation and is responsible for ensuring that it is communicated, understood, implemented and maintained at all levels within the organisation.

We are committed to the prevention of pollution and continual improvement of our environmental performance.

As an organisation, we are committed to ensuring that we:

  • Comply with all environmental legislation, using codes of practice and guidance produced by regulatory bodies to assist where appropriate.
  • Provide all employees with the necessary resources, equipment, information, instruction and training to fulfil the requirements of this policy, commensurate with their role.
  • Work towards an informal environmental management system based on legal requirements and in accordance with other health and safety and quality procedures.
  • Strive to integrate environmental best practice into our business operations.
  • Prevent pollution to the environment by ensuring that we manage transport, waste, hazardous substances and resource consumption.
  • Minimise risk to watercourses by using biodegradable chainsaw bar oil when working in their vicinity. Treeworks Moray only uses biodegradable oil in its chainsaws.
  • Minimise waste to landfill by reducing our waste generation and by segregating and recycling waste where economically and operationally feasible.
  • Minimise risk to employee health by using Aspen 2 chainsaw fuel when operating chainsaws within enclosed or low-lying areas.
  • Use energy, water, materials and other natural resources as efficiently as possible, giving particular regard to the long term sustainability of consumable items.
  • Ensure that the environment is considered in the procurement of goods and services.
  • Give appropriate consideration for the environment in the goods and services we provide to customers.
  • This policy will be communicated to all employees and organisations working for or on behalf of Treeworks Moray where necessary. Employees (and other organisations) are expected to co-operate and assist in the implementation of this policy, whilst ensuring that their own work, so far as is reasonably practicable, is carried out without risk to themselves, others, or the environment.
