North West Parents and Friends Environmental Policy Statement

Our policy is to reduce the impact of the Association’s operations on the environment, in line with the Irish Government’s Climate Action Plan of 2021, which aims to achieve a 51% reduction on overall greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

The goal is to promote sustainability and environmental awareness at all levels of the Association by:

Complying with all applicable environmental legislation and sustainability commitments.

  • Incorporating energy efficiency measures in the Association’s facilities and promoting efficient energy use in all areas of business activity
  • Promoting and continuing to invest in technologies that provide alternatives to business travel.
  • Ensure our staff are aware of the environmental impacts of their work activities and encourage them through regular awareness to minimise those impacts.
  • Minimise the generation of all wastes as far as practicable and increase the volume of waste recycled and/or reused
  • Make continuous efforts to explore new ways to maximise our energy efficiency.
  • Make this policy statement available to all staff, contractors and all interested stakeholders.
  • Promote our commitment to minimising our impact on the environment through relevant information/signage throughout the organisations facilities

We focus on the principle of the three R’s:

Reduce –the number of resources used in the first place
Reuse –as much as possible after first use
Recycle as much as possible of what remains for another use.

This policy has the endorsement of the Board of Directors
