HWH's Commitment to the Environment
Hadrian’s Wall Trust (HWT) is aware that we have a responsibility in the way we manage our work to protect and enhance the environment. We are committed to preserving the natural environment; to reducing or eliminating any negative impacts our actions may have; and to controlling and avoiding pollution.
HWT is a member of the Green Tourism Business Scheme and holds a Green Tourism Bronze Award for its commitment to the environment.
We will improve our environmental performance in company practice by:
taking account of environmental and sustainability considerations in areas such as building energy management, waste minimisation and the purchase of consumables insofar as they are under our direct control
applying policies on travel in ways which encourage both economic and environmental efficiency.
We will positively influence the environmental performance of commissions which we are engaged on by:
encouraging our suppliers and those we employ to maintain high levels of environmental performance in the context of supplies we receive / work which they undertake for us
ensuring that our staff are properly trained to carry out their statutory responsibilities and to influence environmental performance positively; and
seeking (where we provide advice and recommendations) to integrate environmental and sustainability considerations and positive impacts into all commissions and business practices.
