Environmental

Dugdale Ltd believe that businesses are responsible for achieving good environmental practice and operating in a sustainable manner.

We recognise that our activities have an impact on the environment in terms of the use of raw materials, emissions to air and water and waste generation. Hence we are therefore committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral and

fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods.

It is our aim to encourage our customers, suppliers and all business associates to do the same.

In order to achieve these aims Dugdale Ltd will:

 
      • Comply with and strive to exceed all relevant Legislation and Regulations as they apply to its operations.
    • Minimise our waste and then reuse or recycle as much of it as possible.
    • Minimise energy and water usage in our buildings, vehicles and processes in order to conserve supplies, and minimise our consumption of natural resources, especially where they are non-renewable.
    • Review environmental objectives and goals to reduce wherever possible levels of harmful emissions.
  • Assess the environmental impact of any new processes or products we intend to introduce in advance.
  • Review this policy on an annual basis, taking account of any changes within legislation our organisation, and other factors.

REACH

REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. It entered into force on 1 June 2007.

REACH is a regulatory framework defined by the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) with the objective to "improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry".

Furthermore, Dugdale Ltd is fully committed with regards to the objectives of REACH and the positive contribution it will make on the sustainable development of the European Chemical Industry.

CLP

CLP stands for Classification, Labelling and Packaging. The CLP Regulation entered into force in January 2009, and the method of classifying and labelling chemicals it introduced is based on the United Nations' Globally Harmonised System (GHS).

The CLP Regulation ensures that the hazards presented by chemicals are clearly communicated to workers and consumers in the European Union through classification and labelling of chemicals.

Dugdale Ltd ensures that all compounds supplied are classified, labelled and packaged in accordance with the CLP Regulation.

RoHS 2/WEEE

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), is a complex mixture of materials and components that because of their hazardous content, and if not properly managed, can cause major environmental and health problems.

The above legislation have been introduced to increase the recycling/re-use of waste electrical and electronic equipment (namely WEEE) and restrict the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (namely RoHS).

RoHS stands for "Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment" and was introduced to restrict the use of certain hazardous substances in the electrical and electrical equipment (EEE) entering the waste stream.

Directive 2011/65/EU entered into force on 21st July 2011 and requires Member States to transpose the provisions into their respective national laws. The RoHS 2 Directive is part of the European Union's horizontal waste management legislation which also harmonises the directive with other EU legislation including REACH.

Dugdale Ltd is committed to complying with all aspect of both RoHS 2 and WEEE
