    our own requirements which exceed any relevant minimum requirements.
  • Include environmental considerations into all our business decision-making,
    planning and implementation.
  • Set appropriate and measurable environmental objectives and targets, and
    develop and implement an Environmental Management System in accordance
    with the international standard ISO 14001:2004 to monitor and improve our
    environmental performance.
  • Regularly monitor and review environmental performance against set objectives
    and targets to ensure continuous improvement.
  • Apply technologies and procedures that avoid or minimise waste generation, air,
    water and other pollution and environmental risks.
  • Ensure the responsible use of natural resources throughout our business by
    promoting efficient use, reuse and recycling of resources.
  • Minimise impacts associated with our activities upon natural ecosystems.
  • Enhance environmental awareness among employees, agents and
    contractors by providing necessary training, support and resources, and lead
    them to fulfill Orbitas environmental responsibilities.

    as well as making it available to the general public.
