At African Union of the Blind we are entirely committed to safe-guarding to the best of our ability all aspects of the environment which could be affected by any activities we undertake, and promoting by example and instruction a positive attitude to environmental compliance with its legal obligations in environmental matters, but will encourage proactive attitudes in anticipating problems, and in seeking out and adopting the very best solutions wherever practical.
African Union of the Blind operates in a number of fields, each of which carries its own environmental risks and opportunities. Imaginative and vigilant awareness of these factors must be developed by all management, who will ensure that assessment of the particular environmental risks inherent in their areas of work are given priority in their short and long term planning.
We promote a positive attitude on environmental issues to our employees, sub-contractors and any third parties with whom we do business.
Not only do we comply with the legal obligations across all environmental matters relating to our industry, but we also do our utmost to encourage proactive attitudes, to anticipate any issues before they arise and to adopt the most environmentally-friendly solutions wherever we can.
Protection of our environment is the responsibility of everyone throughout the company. The importance of this declaration of policy will be stressed to all employees, while all sub-contractors will be required to confirm their compliance.
