Lagan is always mindful that it operates in a community and therefore has a valuable role to play in supporting and engaging with our local neighbours and making sure our operations make a positive contribution to the locality.
Aside from the social and economic benefits of offering local direct and indirect employment, the management at Lagan are very focused in practical terms on ensuring that there is minimal potential for nuisance of any sort for our neighbouring community arising out of our activities.
Lagan realises the impact its activities can have on local communities and environments in the execution of its activities.
Social Progress which Recognises the Needs of Everyone:
Lagan will respect the needs and cultures of communities and countries in which it is working. We will endeavour to maximise our use of local labour and local suppliers.
Effective Protection of the Environment:
Lagan has implemented an Environmental Management System which is third-party-certified as meeting the requirements of the ISO 14001:2004 standard. We will, on all contracts, complete impacts assessment on all planned activities and ensure that control measures are implemented to mitigate any potentially adverse environmental impacts.
Prudent Use of Natural Resources:
Lagan will seek to minimise waste production. We will plan all activities, giving due consideration to the efficient use of energy and materials.
Materials required and used on each contract will be obtained from environmentally-friendly sources wherever possible.
