The Northern Ireland Assembly Commission (the Assembly Commission) is committed to becoming an exemplar organisation in respect of sustainable development and recognises that effective environmental management is a major contributing factor in achieving this high level aspiration.
The Assembly Commission understands that its activities have both direct and indirect environmental impacts. It therefore aims to act responsibly in everything it does to help reduce these impacts and move towards a more environmentally sustainable future.
In support of these principles, the Assembly Commission is committed to the following:
- Continually improving its environmental performance through the maintenance of an environmental management system, which conforms with the requirements of the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems Standard;
- Complying with all relevant environmental legislation and other environmental requirements;
- Reviewing Parliament Buildings' environmental performance at regular intervals;
- Reducing and preventing pollution where possible, by responsibly managing our impact on the environment through the development and implementation of effective strategies for waste and resource management;
- Working with our suppliers to reduce the direct and indirect environmental impacts of our supply chain;
- Communicating this policy to all building users to help increase their environmental awareness; and
- Making this policy available to the public.
