Environmental Policy Statement

Skyline Property Solutions has made a commitment to ensure that its operations take into account the possible impact on the environment. It will work towards:

  • Ensuring that all relevant environmental legislation and regulation is applied
  • Reducing Energy Usage by increased energy efficiency using raw materials in a manner that reduces waste
  • Re-using or Recycling waste
  • When possible purchasing environmentally friendly materials when appropriate.

We are continually raising the awareness of staff so that everyone may be involved operating the business in an environmentally sensitive manner.

Environmental Policy

The Environmental Policy covers all aspects of Skyline Property Solutions operations – from good housekeeping measures such as paper recycling, to ensuring that investments made are environmentally sound. The policy also commits us to promoting suppliers and services which adhere to environmentally sound ways of operating

All staff must have access to this Environmental Policy through our staff handbook which is explained in detail during staff induction. The Environmental Policy will be regularly referred to in decision-making and through team meetings. It is to be included during the induction of new staff and board members. It shall be reviewed bi-annually as a minimum by the Director, and team.

Skyline Property Solutions practises the principles of the 3Rs by

  1. Reducing waste where possible by thinking about what we buy and how we use it. Non-essential documents and emails will not be printed. We will annually review which internal documents and external publications are essential, if they are not they will be cancelled thus reducing waste and saving money. We will endeavour to avoid disposable cups and food packaging bought by the office and for events. We will try to ensure all our printing and photocopying is done on double-sided paper and use electronic invoicing and on-line learning.
  2. Re-use wherever possible by trying to find a second life for items especially paper and office stationery. Scrap paper will be used in printers, fax machines, for taking messages and for writing notes or draft copies of documents. We are committed to the re-use of envelopes and packaging where possible.
  3. Recycle as the least preferred option of the 3Rs. All paper, card, glass, tin will be recycled. Food waste will be composted. Toner cartridges and inkjets will also be recycled. If office furniture or IT equipment is being replaced then we will seek to have those items reused or recycled. We will use/support social economy organisations to recycle materials as appropriate.
  4. Skyline Property Solutions will buy recycled. We will endeavour to switch all publications and general office papers to 100% post-consumer waste recycled papers, any additional purchasing costs will be balanced against reduced consumption. When purchasing other items of office equipment recycled options will be considered.
  5. Skyline Property Solutions will seek to purchase fair-traded and environmentally sound goods. In particular sourcing of refreshments for meetings, training and events should wherever possible be purchased from local suppliers to reduce food miles (preferably within the social economy).
  6. Skyline Property Solutions will promote the use of cycling and walking as the main means of travel to local meetings, and use public transport where systems allow efficient use. For journeys that require the use of a car, car sharing will be encouraged.
  7. Skyline Property Solutions will seek to minimize the use of energy in its activities. For example lights and equipment will be switched on only when needed and not out of routine.
  8. Skyline Property Solutions senior management team met on 7th June 2010 to set specific targets to minimise the impact of the environment which will be reviewed on 6th December 2010.
