Carbon & Sustainability Policy

Download PDF

FCC Environment recognises the importance of reporting carbon emissions. It is our policy to comply with all relevant legislation and reduce the direct impact of our operations on climate change by focussing on the areas where we can have the greatest impact.

  1. Carbon emissions resulting from operational activities
  2. Carbon emissions resulting from the electricity we use
  3. Carbon emissions resulting from employee business travel
  4. Carbon emissions resulting from plant and fleet fuel use

FCC Environment is committed to:


  • We will calculate and publish our carbon footprint on an annual basis
  • On an annual basis, we will review the data and set reduction targets


We will implement avoidance measures (where practical) in order to prevent carbon emissions as a result of our day to day activities


  • We will seek ways to reduce our carbon emissions through reduction initiatives or improvements in monitoring and reporting systems

Promote Sustainability

  • FCC Environment is committed to improving profitability - and environmental and economic sustainability - through the effective management of procurement activities

Source Responsibly

  • We will procure from legal sources and comply with all relevant procurement and environmental legislation
  • We will try to minimise (where practical) adverse impacts on individuals, communities and cultures resulting directly or indirectly from procurement decisions and we will wherever possible encourage SMEs and local suppliers to bid for appropriate work.
  • We will ensure robust evaluation processes are used, ensuring all factors (sustainability, cost, quality, delivery and competence) are exhibited

FCC Environment is committed to improving our carbon management and accounting processes and in turn broaden the scope of our footprint. Ultimate responsibility for the reduction of our carbon emissions lies with the FCC Environment's Board of Directors and through them its Executive Committee.
