Cara Group Environmental Policy Statement


The Cara Group is committed to meeting the construction industries best practice in environmental performance wherever reasonable to do so. We recognise that our groundwork, civil, formwork, and brickwork activities will always have some impact on the environment but will endeavour to minimise any adverse effect where possible. We believe that good environmental practice helps ensure good business performance.

In pursuit of these goals the Cara Group will:

  • Always conduct our activities within the legislative obligations, and other requirements such as PPG’s and customer requirements, to ensure our protective and preventative measures will be appropriate to the nature and scale of our activities.
  • Develop and promote practices which prevent pollution and minimise where practical, the detrimental environmental impacts that construction activities have upon the environment. These practices will be available for scrutiny by representatives of the public.
  • Encourage the development of suitable construction methods, which promote environmental protection and/or minimise their environmental effects.
  • Encourage clients and suppliers to pursue environmental best practice and to apply environmentally favourable solutions, and comply with Cara Timber Policy.
  • Aim to provide education and training for our employees, to help them include environmental considerations in all aspects of their work.
  • Attempt to make efficient use of natural resources and minimise, where possible, our use of utilities and production of waste.
  • Attempt, where practical, to respect the environmental demands of the communities in which we operate and society in general.
  • Continuously review its activities to ensure a programme of continuous improvement.
  • Develop and agree environmental objectives and targets.

Environmental legislation and environmental priorities will change with time. Therefore Cara Group will monitor environmental developments, regularly review and, where necessary amend, revise or make additions to this policy to ISO14001 requirements
