In order to ensure continued energy conservation at Leyland Trucks an Energy Management Team was set up in 1994. The main objectives of this team are to ensure energy is used efficiently, energy waste is minimised and that the best energy conservation practices are used. These objectives have the ultimate aim of protecting the environment by ensuring the minimum amount of energy is supplied to the site.
Statement of environmental policy
Leyland Trucks has had an environmental policy statement since 1995. This policy has led to the company recognising the actual and potential environmental impacts of its operations, and has helped the company to positively reduce these impacts.
Principles of Leyland Trucks Environmental Policy (The 3 C’s)
1. Leyland Trucks will control its activities in such a way that environmental impacts are appropriately managed and reduced to a practical minimum.
2. Leyland Trucks is committed to continual improvement of its environmental performance and intends to achieve this by improvements resulting from its continuous improvement programmes, in particular through the achievements of six-sigma projects and by setting and achieving annual environmental objectives and targets.
3. Leyland Trucks will comply with the law.
In order to achieve these aims, Leyland Trucks will maintain an environmental management system which meets the requirements of ISO 14001:2015.
