Our Environmental Policy

IS Instruments is a science and technology company fully aware of current environmental issues. Our Environmental Policy reflects this.

Our Environmental Policy was created to ensure at all times we maintain and follow procedures and practices to minimise any environmental impact of our work. As part of the business, we are developing instruments to assist clients in monitoring pollutants and providing solutions to controlling these risks to the environment. Ongoing projects include monitoring for microplastics, and water contamination and our instruments are being used in nuclear decommissioning to minimise risk to humans and the environment from radiation.

We have a clear commitment to the environment and recognise our responsibilities to the local community and the wider environment for our impact. We are committed to complying with all relevant environmental legislation at the local, regional and national levels as a minimum requirement. We are also committed to continually improving environmental performance through appropriate initiatives, controls, and provision of resources and training of employees. The aim is to minimise the impacts of our activities, products and services.

The EMS implements the Environmental Policy via documented policies, procedures and standards under the direction of the senior management team with the support of all employees, suppliers and contractors. Customers are advised to use and dispose of our products in an environmentally appropriate way.

Management objectives and targets are established and reviewed on a regular basis to implement the Environmental Policy.

These are based on a commitment to six environmental principles:

Prevention of pollution

Minimisation of energy and material usage and the production of waste

Effective and responsible waste management and disposal.

Promoting reuse and recycling of products.

Maintaining a high level of awareness of environmental issues in the workforce.

Involving suppliers, contractors and customers in environmental initiatives
