Policy Statement

In this statement the term ‘sustainability’ includes the natural, built, economic and social environments.

Synergy Lifting Ltd recognises its sustainability obligations to its staff, visitors, communities and stakeholders – both locally and globally – and to present and succeeding generations.

Synergy Lifting Ltd aims to take a leading role in defining best sustainability practice, and will set its own appropriate and demanding standards where none exist.

Synergy Lifting Ltd is committed to implementing the requirements of all relevant sustainability legislation and regulations and, where possible, exceeding any relevant minimum requirements.

Synergy Lifting Ltd will manage activities over which it has control and which impact upon its various ‘environments’ in accordance with the principles of sustainable development.

Synergy Lifting Ltd aims to raise the sustainability awareness of its staff contractors and stakeholders by promoting the concept of sustainable development and by openly recognising the on-going need to move towards a more sustainable future.

We will monitor our use of natural resources, both non-renewable and renewable, and maximise the efficiency and effectiveness with which they are used, with a view to minimising environmental impacts. We will foster and promote research and education in sustainability – for visitors, within its communities and via conferences, publications and collaborative work.

Synergy Lifting Ltd will provide appropriate sustainability training and development for its staff, and will encourage them to apply sound sustainability practices at work, at home and within the wider community.

Synergy Lifting Ltd is committed to transparency in, and public access, to the formulation and implementation of its Sustainability Policy and objectives. We will formulate, publish, implement and monitor objectives set out in the overall Policy, and will periodically review their efficiency and promote their continued development.

The Sustainability Policy of Synergy Lifting Ltd will be applicable to all its activities and across all its sites.
