Environmental performance

Supporting you on your water journey to
sustainable water management.

Waterscan Limited recognises that good environmental management and addressing the challenges of climate change must be an integral and fundamental part of its corporate business strategy.

Waterscan understands that its activities impact on the environment, both through the routine internal operations and through the supply, provision and support of its water management products and services. It acknowledges a responsibility for, and commitment to, the protection of the environment at all levels, primarily by:

  • Reducing travel, through the use of technology and travelling efficiently when it is essential.
  • Reducing waste and energy usage.
  • Ensuring that all products, services, and activities carried out will fully comply with applicable environmental legislation and other requirements.
  • Prevention of pollution, the continuous improvement of environmental performance through the engagement of all employees and drive such engagement with its supply chain.
  • Ensuring as much purchased material as possible is sourced from sustainable or recycled materials.
  • Setting targets and objectives, and regularly reviewing them.
  • Monitoring and measuring carbon footprint with the view of reducing it.

Waterscan operates an Environmental Management System which sets out the commitments of the company, determines the environmental aspects of activities, products and services that can be controlled, those that can be influenced, their associated environmental impacts, mechanisms for managing them, plus environmental aims and targets to strive for.
