Spicer Vision

Environmental Policy

Spicers Ltd aim is to be the principal source of supply for the delivery of office and related products to the UK and Irish markets. In doing so we recognise that our operations will have an impact on the environment. Concern for the environment will be a fundamental part of decision making in all aspects of the company's activities, including capital investment and in allocation of resources. All company sites will implement and support the environmental management system that is appropriate to their potential environmental impact. Spicers Ltd will aim to

  1. operate in ways that contribute to lowering energy and fuel usage, reducing carbon emissions, and reducing and recycling waste throughout the entire supply chain;
  2. analyse our activities to ensure any risk of pollution, contamination or other environmental impact is controlled and, if possible, eliminated;
  3. ensure, as a minimum, compliance with all applicable legal requirements, as well as meeting or exceeding other requirements appropriate to the company's activities;
  4. recognise our key stakeholders environmental interests, and work with them to ensure their interests are considered in our environmental strategies;
  5. consider key suppliers' environmental policies and credentials as part of the process for evaluation and selection;
  6. monitor and report, internally and externally, the environmental impact of the company's operations; and
  7. strive for continual environmental improvement through the setting and reviewing of objectives and targets.



The company Environmental Policy was first approved by the Directors of Spicers Ltd in December 2003 and has been regularly reviewed and, when appropriate, updated. This updated Policy was approved on 15th November 2007.
