It is the policy of Newhaven Port & Properties Ltd to ensure that our business practices protect and enhance the environment and therefore the welfare of our employees and the communities in which we operate. Our objective is to leave a positive legacy in fulfilment of our commitment to developing a Green Port, encompassing areas such as greener port construction, energy efficiency, waste reduction and management, and providing safeguards against the effects of climate change.
This Environmental Policy Statement is applicable to all employees and it is our intention that this Policy Statement is conveyed and committed to by tenants, contractors and visitors.
The Company will adopt the following principles to implement the Policy for both its Marine and Commercial operations:
Our intention is to monitor measure and manage our environmental performance to ensure that any potential adverse effects resulting from our operations are minimised and opportunities for improvement are adopted, where practicable.
NPP Ltd commits to undertaking a monitoring programme including, but not limited to, energy usage, waste streams, water usage and quality, biodiversity, transport, building design, employee engagement and community liaison; against such monitoring programmes, changes in performance can be measured. We are committed to using the findings of monitoring programmes to develop procedures and action plans for managing future operations and developments of the port.
The Directors of the Company fully endorse this Policy and regard sound environmental management as an integral part of the Port’s operations. The Policy will be reviewed on a regular basis to embrace changes to Company activities, advances in technology and environmental evolution.
