Environmental Management Policy

Zero Waste Scotland has an Environmental Management System which supports us to minimise and continually reduce our environmental impacts as an organisation. 

Our Environmental Policy is a documented statement of Zero Waste Scotland’s environmental commitments, signed by the Director and covering all aspects of our operations. 

We monitor our significant environmental impacts as part of our commitment to our ISO14001 Environmental Management System. Our significant impacts are shown in the table below.
