About this document

This environmental policy document is a clearly written, concise statement for a business suitable for any business or organisation. It has been drawn as a "business mission statement" so as to provide quantifiable aims relating to operational standards in order to protect the environment.

An environmental policy statement is not compulsory in the UK, and therefore is not regulated by legislation of any kind. We have drawn this policy flexibly, so that you can add additional provisions to suit your requirements. The document contains provision for all the principal themes associated with a comprehensive policy.

The policy can be altered to include the company’s goals regarding waste management, recycling, reduction of emissions and pollution, compliance with environmental legislation and training for staff, as well as many other commonly addressed and potentially relevant issues.

When to use this template

This policy can be put in place at any time. Usually, it would form part of your staff handbook, although it could also be circulated to employees alone. It is suitable for a company of any size.
