We recognise that our day-to-day practices can have an adverse effect on the environment. Our sustainability policy is to minimise our negative environmental impacts.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Mane Contract Services Limited commits to implement this policy throughout the organisation by:

  • Maximising emission savings of our activities
  • Minimising consumption of resources and waste arising
  • Complying with all relevant environmental legislation
  • Maintaining the ISO 14001 standard for all Mane operational locations
  • Training staff on our sustainability objectives
  • Communicating and reporting progress, both internally and externally
  • Operating in a socially and ethically responsible manner

Travel and meetings

  • Walk, cycle and/or use public transport to attend meetings, site visits etc, apart from in exceptional circumstances where the alternatives are impractical and/or cost prohibitive
  • Minimise the use of air travel and when travelling to Europe, actively encourage the use of trains
  • Avoid physically travelling to meetings etc where alternatives are available and practical, such as using teleconferencing, video conferencing or web cams, and efficient timing of meetings to avoid multiple trips. These options are also often more time efficient, while not sacrificing the benefits of regular contact with clients and partners
  • Reduce the need for our staff to travel by promoting the use of public transport, walking and cycling and encouraging the use of low emission vehicles


Practical Steps

  • We actively recycle all paper waste, bottles, cans, cardboard and batteries via the services of professional recycling service companies
  • Minimise our use of paper and other office consumables, for example by double-siding all paper used, and identifying opportunities to reduce waste
  • We recycle all printing consumables
  • Reduce the energy consumption of office equipment by purchasing energy efficient equipment and good housekeeping
  • Where possible purchase electricity from a supplier committed to renewable energy. Seek to maximise the proportion from renewable energy sources, whilst also supporting investment in new renewable energy schemes
