As a people-first business, we are deeply aware of our responsibility towards the world we all live and work in. This underpins the culture here at JPS, where every colleague is encouraged to proactively and systematically work to improve both our own environmental performance as well as that of the projects and sites on which we’re engaged.
Our commitment continuous improvement can be seen in many different ways, including:
- fully integrating environmental considerations into the planning and execution of our work, so that our mission is successfully accomplished for the benefit of the company, the public, our employees and the environment
- maintaining an Environmental Management System (EMS), which is designed to meet the requirements of ISO 14001
- complying with all existing environmental regulations and requirements, and meeting all new regulations as soon as reasonably practicable
- seeking to reduce our energy use
- cutting carbon by carefully monitoring our vehicle use and considering the impact of logistics (both goods and people)
- managing on-site activities to minimise risk and mitigate negative impacts to the environment
- implementing pollution prevention and waste minimisation programmes to eliminate or reduce waste and emissions.
We measure our performance against these objectives through regular review meetings, overseen by our environmental manager.
We also recognise a wider responsibility to share our own standards as well as what we expect of our partners and suppliers, and to work with others to improve our environmental performance.
We therefore regularly communicate environmental information to those entities which have a significant effect on our environmental impacts, as well as stakeholders and the public.
Our environmental performance approach is backed by our Managing Director and forms a key part of our company culture. We always think about the long-term, including people, projects and the environment.
