Our environmental mission and principles
Sentrex Services UK Ltd. aims to assess the impact of all our activities on the environment and in unison with all customers and suppliers achieve the highest environmental standards in all our strategies policies and actions. We continuously seek to reduce the environmental impact of our activities with due regard to all aspects of the Environment Protection Act.
As we progress with our aim to using more recycled and renewable products our purchasing policies will reflect the reduction in materials from non-renewable resources.
In the application of the cleaning and associated services the main areas of interest will be:
1. Cleaning materials themselves.
2. The consumables utilised with the execution of the contract.
The manufacture of products is not carried out by us and therefore our main focus will be upon purchasing policies. It is our aim and we have included that all possible consumables will be purchased as fully recycled products and therefore all paper and where possible plastic products will be recycled products, goods and such then will not be supplied other than for cleaning use.

All employees will know our Environmental policies and are expected to demonstrate excellence in job performance on environmental matters.
Reduction And Disposal Of Waste
We will work to eliminate the volume of toxicity of waste generated by our process, through our environmental improvements of products we use and service we offer our customers. We will vigorously pursue opportunities to recycle waste before other management practices are applied. We will seek to partner with suppliers and customers that share a similar philosophy.
Development And Technology
We will actively research and develop and implement technologies that provide demonstrable environmental improvements in product line and services we offer.
Use Of Electricity
Whilst we strive to reduce the environmental aspects of our operations, we acknowledge that the use of electricity and the consumption of energy in general, will continue to have an environmental impact.
Sustainable Use Of Natural Resource
When possible we will use renewable natural resources in sustainable manner. We will conserve non-renewable natural resources through careful planning and efficient use. We will investigate the recycling of our products and make changes when feasible.
We will comply with legal requirements and if possible exceed them where National Company Standards are higher; we will implement programmes, procedures and products to attain legal compliance based upon scientific evidence, and we require constant compliance throughout the company.
We will operate in a manner designed to minimise environmental, health and safety hazards. We commit ourselves to protect our employees and others in the vicinity of our operations by employing responsible technologies and operating procedures and by being prepared for emergencies. We will encourage employees to report to management any condition which they believe creates a danger to the environment or poses a health and safety hazard.
Protection Of The Biosphere
We are committed to the conservation of nature; we will seek to safeguard general habitats in rivers, lakes wetlands and oceans and through our choice of products and services, will minimise contribution to acid rain, smog or depletion of the ozone layer.
Public Policy And Education
We will support and participate in the development of public policy and in educational initiatives that will protect human health and improve the environment. We will aid the public in understanding the environmental impacts of our activities and services.
We operate and maintain a large vehicle fleet, and recognise that the use of vehicles has a wide ranging impact on the environment. The transport sector is a significant consumer of energy and vehicle emissions represent one of the major contribution factors with respect to global warming and acid rain. We have therefore adopted a range of measures that will reduce the impact our fleet has on the environment.
We will maximise the efficiency of a similar fleet through maintenance, selection of vehicle/engine size and driver training. We undertake careful routing and planning of journeys to reduce the need of travel and minimise length of journeys.
Internal Policy Assessment
The executive committee of the Company will evaluate and will address the environmental implications of its decision. We will commit resources needed to implement these principles.
