Garthenor is committed to establishing and sustaining a positive environmental legacy for the future generations. In doing so, we are committed to minimising our overall impact on the environment while encouraging environmentally responsible behaviour on the part of our employees, suppliers, manufacturers, customers and partners.
Specifically, we aim to reduce energy usage, paper usage, waste, promote conservation, and to inspire action. We aim to identify, measure and understand the direct and indirect impact of our operations, how they compare to other companies in our sector, and develop innovative and realistic solutions for mitigating those impacts. We also comply with, and in some cases exceed environmental laws and regulations.
Garthenor will periodically review performance and publish these results, and update this document in accordance with these results.
