EGS - Environmental Policy

The company intends to play its part by continually seeking ways to prevent pollution and minimise the effects of its office and site based activities on the environment.

As proactive environmental management is an integral part of the management requirements of the company, the Directors require the active co-operation of all members of staff to ensure that this forms part of effective service delivery to clients.
