INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR DEFENCE AND SECURITY

Environmental Policy

Drumgrange has an Environmental Policy (CM03) embedded in its ISO accredited Quality Management System. The policy states that Drumgrange are committed to reducing its environmental impact and continually improving environmental performance as an integral and fundamental part of business strategy and operating methods.

Drumgrange monitors the implementation of its environmental policy at the bi-monthly management meetings, attended by the Senior Management Team and the Managing Director. A number of in-house initiatives have been implemented via this forum, including on-site facilities to collect paper, plastics, aluminium and toner cartridges for recycling as well as the use of renewable source packaging. Also staff are encouraged, and reminded, to switch off lights and air conditioning when not required. 

Compliance with environmental legislation is managed by the Technical Manager. Two key areas implemented have been the use of RoHS compliant components in design and throughout the supply chain and compliance with the WEEE directive.

The Drumgrange policy is to:

  1. Wholly support the requirements of current environmental legislation and codes of practice and exceed them where possible.
  2. Minimise waste and reuse or recycle as much of it as possible.
  3. Minimise energy and wayer usage in Drumgrange buildings, vehicles and processes to conserve supplies, and minimise consumption of natural resources, especially when they are non-renewable.
  4. Operate and maintain company vehicles (with due regard to environmental issues as far as reasonably practical).
  5. Apply the principles of continuous improvement in respect of air, water, noise and light polution from the Drumgrange premises and reduce any impacts from our operations on the envionment and local community. 
  6. As far as possible purchase products and services that minimise damage to the envionment. Assess the environmental impact of any new processes or products. 
  7. Ensure all hazardous waste is removes and disposed of by licenses operators.
  8. Educate and provide training to all staff, where necessary to raise awareness of environmental issues and to solicit their support in continually improving Drumgrange's environmental performance.
