Our Policy

Our commitment to our environment shows itself in the careful planning we perform before any project: this involves selecting the correct process and the correct machinery for each task, depending on the unique conditions found on site. We at Metro are becoming increasingly aware,

not only of global concerns, but more particularly those of our own

local environment. As members of the community, we also share its 

concerns and will make every effort to ensure that we minimise any 

adverse effects our operations may have on the environment.

Metro contractors are specialists in recovering value from a structure and keeping the need for disposal to a minimum. the development of recovery techniques, combined with an increasing awareness of environmental responsibility, means that an ever larger proportion of buildings can be salvaged and create significant cost savings.

  • Be aware and comply with all existing and new environmental legislation and regulations

  • Implement procedures to prevent pollution to land, air or water

  • Take environmental factors into consideration in any new developments or contract works

  • Improve the environmental impact of the company's activites

  • Collect and monitor information regarding the environmental impact and record of the Company

  • Respond to the needs and concerns of the community promptly

  • Reduce waste and consumption of natural resources wherever possible

  • Co-operate in any investigations concerning hazardous emissions or incorrect disposal of hazardous waste

  • Be amongst the leaders in environmental sensitivity

  • Be pro-active in supporting the government initiative policy of working well together

  • Provide adequate environmental training for all staff
