As a responsible employer, we aim to minimise the impact of our operations on the environment.
Our primary operations as an aggregate haulage company and contractor mean we are major users of motor vehicles, plant and technologies – All of which can have a detrimental effect on the environment.
We focus on:
Consistent investment in modern fleet
Monitoring carbon emissions and CO2
Integrated route planning to optimise efficiency and avoid road congestion
It is therefore the policy of Fox Brothers (Lancashire) Limited to ensure that its representatives are aware of and uphold its environmental standards by adhering to the following codes of practice:
Comply with all relevant legislation, local government regulations and guidance.
Meet the environmental standards and specifications directed by our clients.
Undertake their work with the minimum of disruption and disturbance to their clients, their neighbours and the environment
Use, where possible, chemicals and materials with a reduced impact on the environment
Effectively control the use of such substances, preventing spillages into the atmosphere, land and water courses
Have effective emergency procedures in place for cleaning up spillages of potentially hazardous materials and chemicals
Remove general waste and hazardous waste in accordance with the legal Duty of Care and Hazardous Waste Regulations
Prevent any unnecessary atmospheric polluting activity, discharge of polluting substances into drains and water courses and prevent the deliberate discharge of polluting substances or waste into the ground
Recycle waste whenever possible and safely return to the environment and recoverable value from it
Comply with orders and legislation relating to the conservation and the preservation of wildlife
- Prevent general nuisance by avoiding activities which create unnecessary levels of noise, excessive emissions of fumes, generation of litter and any activities likely to cause nuisance
Working with our clients and our business partners we are always looking to identify areas where we can make a positive contribution to the environment.
We regularly review our business operation and utilise various third-party sources including the Road Haulage Association, to ensure we keep up date with emerging Environmental issues. Our Transport Management System and vehicle tracking ensure our Transport department operates efficiently, thereby reducing our environmental impact as well as providing an excellent service to our customers.
Achieving and maintaining accreditations such as FORS and ISO 14001 ensures we as a company are constantly aiming to be more environmentally responsible across all our operations. Training compulsory as part of FORS accreditation requires all our drivers to undertake training, both theory and practical to achieve best practice in terms of environmental protection. Monitoring of fuel usage, driving behaviour and fleet efficiency is also required to achieve FORS accreditation and proof the company is minimising CO2 emissions on a month by month basis.
Fox Brothers are proud of our commitment to the Environment and this policy statement will be regularly reviewed and updated as necessary.
