Simplyhealth Professionals Environmental Policy

Our commitment to environmental business principles 

On 11 December 2012 we passed our second re-accreditation for ISO 14001 – a certification that sets out the criteria for a company to follow for an effective environmental management system. During this assessment we received no non-conformances, observations or recommendations, and was described as a 'model' customer. 

In April 2013, we gained the Carbon Smart Blue Standard Certification, recognising that our company has taken clear, practical action to reduce its impact on the environment.

Our vision
We are committed to following more sustainable environmental business principles.

Wherever feasible we will monitor, evaluate and make more efficient use of resources by: 

  • Reducing waste
  • Increasing recycling rates
  • Reducing energy use covering electricity, commuting, business travel and the distribution of our products and services
  • Reducing water use
  • Reducing the use of other key resources such as paper
  • Reducing our carbon footprint as part of the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC)
  • We will actively support our local community partners in these areas
  • We will work with all our suppliers to help them to reduce the environmental impact of the products and services which they provide for us
  • We will aim to prevent pollution that is caused directly by any of our activities

How we will achieve this
We will:

  • Operate an environmental management system which achieves and maintains accreditation of ISO 14001 
  • Set targets to reduce our environmental impacts which will be reviewed on an annual basis with the agreement and support of the Executive Leadership Team  
  • Ensure that we monitor and analyse our activities and seek to reduce our environmental impact year on year as part of a continual improvement process  
  • Ensure that we comply with all relevant environmental legislation 
  • Communicate our policy, targets and activities internally and externally
  • Report progress to all our stakeholders on a regular, formal basis
