Environmental Management System (EMS)
|Country Landscapes recognises that all activities, products and services
can have an adverse impact on the environment.
Wherever practicable we will seek to eliminate or minimize these impacts.
We will comply with all environmental legislation and regulations in so far
as they apply to our business activities.
Management System (EMS) is based upon the requirements of the international
environmental management standards 14001
and the principle of continual improvement. We use the four-step cycle
made famous by Deming: Plan, Do, Check, Act. This framework helps to cut
through the complexities and provides a simple methodology for energy
management and continual improvement on sustainability issues.
