CCNW value the importance of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria
Our ESG journey is on track with a sustainability strategy designed to tackle environmental and social issues.
As part of our business strategy, we will report any changes and progress on our ESG performance.
We will respect today’s environment while creating tomorrow’s wildlife environments. Reducing the impact of our activities on global environmental issues such as climate change, ozone destruction, resource depletion, and loss of habitat and biodiversity. We seek to do this by:
- Improving the designs of our wildlife habitats and environmental improvements to deliver high-quality, sustainable places for people to visit and enjoy
- Reducing our impact on the environment, both during and post conservation works, by using less energy, water, and materials and minimising waste
- Effectively managing, monitoring, improving and communicating our environmental performance
- Setting realistic and measurable objectives and targets to effect continual improvement to the environmental performance
- Minimising the volume of waste generated by CCNW’s operations. We will also look to recycle green waste wherever possible
- Actively promote systems of good governance by engaging our staff to comply with our rules and procedures to prevent pollution and minimise the effects on our environment
- Ensuring that waste management is performed in accordance with all waste legislative requirements, including the duty of care, and to plan for future legislative changes and to mitigate their effects
- Providing appropriate training for staff and sub-contractors on waste management issues
- Operating a Purchasing Policy that avoids the use of environmentally damaging products, packaging and services; encourages the reuse and use of recycled materials; and promotes the purchase of items that can have a positive effect on the Environment; e.g. FSC1 timber, demonstrating reasonable steps to promote biodiversity and limit environmental damage
We understand the value our stakeholders place on the natural environment, we create new habitats, and improve biodiversity.
We believe in an environment that promotes health, well-being, and equal opportunities for our staff and the local communities in which we work.
