Company Statement of Intent

The DASCO Group has embarked on a company-wide programme to improve our environmental performance, to set policies and targets and implement management systems to monitor and measure our performance. Our first step, agreed at The DASCO Group Safety, Health and Environment Committee meeting has been to agree an overreaching Environmental Policy. This policy sets out our approach to environmental management. Effective implementation of this policy represents an opportunity to improve The DASCO Group's performance by reducing environmental risks and impacts and increasing the efficiency of our operation.


The DASCO Group is committed to the prevention of pollution and will work to minimise the impact of its operations through a continuous improvement system.


In particular, we will:

  • Comply with all relevant existing environmental legislation and other requirements.
  • Reduce harmful emissions wherever possible.
  • Seek to reduce consumption of materials in our operations and promote recycling and the use of recycled materials.
  • Manage energy and water usage wisely in all our operations.
  • Incorporate environmental considerations into the procurement of goods and services.
  • Offset harmful emissions in all of our activity.
  • Allocate sufficient management resources to ensure effective implementation of the environmental policy.
  • Motivate and educate our employees to conduct their activities in an environmentally responsible manner.
  • Measure, monitor and report on key indicators of our environmental performance on an annual basis.
  • Review our policy on a regular basis to take into account new developments in environmental management and legislation, and also stakeholder expectations.
  • Perform periodic audits of our activities to ensure compliance with company requirements, legislation and policy requirements.

The DASCO Group recognises that the effective implementation of the policy represents an opportunity to improve the performance of the company by reducing environmental risks and impacts, and increasing the efficiency of an operation.


The DASCO Group will review this policy and its contents at periods of no more than 12 months or when procedures, company practices or legislation are amended. The implementation of these reviews shall be the responsibility of the SHE (Safety, Health and Environmental) Committee which meets on a monthly basis.
