• Sustainability

  • We take our commitment to sustainability and the environment very seriously. At Ducker & Young we aim to reduce our carbon footprint on all projects. Added to this we look to resource local products and suppliers where it is possible.

    As the majority of our carbon impact is related directly to transport we use on-site storage areas to reduce the amount of travel required. While we produce minimal waste, any that is generated by our work is taken away by us.

    Our Policy begins with a consideration of the impact of the Company’s activities on both the local and wider communities and will take account of transportation of raw materials, use of energy, distribution of finished product and discharge of emissions and disposal of waste.

    The Company therefore has the following commitments and objectives to:

     

    • minimise disturbance to the local and global environment and to the quality of life of the local communities;

     

    • comply with all relevant statutory regulations;

     

    • maintain appearances and highest environmental standards within the Company premises;

     

    • take positive steps to conserve scarce and non-renewable resources;

     

    • assess, in advance if possible, environmental effects of new processes and developments;

     

    • provide necessary information to enable proper use, storage and disposal of Company products to avoid harm to the environment;

     

    • provide necessary information to enable employees to operate processes and procedures properly to minimise effects on man and the environment;

     

    • keep the public informed of major new projects in the locality.
