Environment

We recognise that the health of people and planet are interdependent and our green policy links this global vision to local action.

MannionDaniels Environmental Policy

MannionDaniels believes that caring for the environment is inseparable from our work in human health, social equality and harmonious business development. We aim to promote an understanding of the interdependence of health, well-being and the environment, both in developing countries and the UK, and to make environmental consideration pivotal to our work.

As a company, we are committed to protecting the environment, preventing pollution, complying with environmental legislation and other requirements relevant to our activities. Consideration and monitoring of these factors in alignment with the business activities help to form our Environmental Management System (EMS), providing a framework for setting environmental objectives. The EMS, its policies and procedures are reviewed annually to ensure continual improvement and enhance our environmental performance.

Our Green Office Action Plan targets one of our primary environmental aspects coming from office energy use and waste. It encompasses energy efficiency, waste prevention, recycling and environmentally aware purchasing.

Fully engaging with the communities whose health systems our projects support necessitates relatively frequent international air travel; we are addressing this by embracing conferencing technology to eliminate unnecessary travel, including domestic travel by our consultants. In addition to this, Co2 emissions from flights undertaken by MannionDaniels staff are calculated annually and offset through investment into local sustainable energy projects.

We have been awarded our ISO 14001 certification, relating to activities at our Head Office location, by British Standards International. The ISO 14001 is a stringent international standard for an effective Environmental Management System; it commits us to a continual cycle of improving our EMS.

The development of this policy and revisions have been carried out under the direction of the company Directors.

Scope of MannionDaniels Environmental Management System

Specialist consulting services in developing countries, and fragile and conflict-affected states. Relating to activities at the Head Office Location

The MannionDaniels Environmental Management System (EMS) has been designed to meet the requirements of the ISO14001 and all applicable legislation.

The EMS will cover all environmental aspects and impacts connected to the company’s Bath based office work with our most significant aspects being the primary focus for monitoring, measurement and continual improvement, specifically:

  • Flights undertaken by MannionDaniels core team to and from project locations
  • Office based work in Bath –relating to electricity & energy usage, computer and connected equipment use, office purchasing/procurement, and disposal of office waste

With regards to project work, this is kept out of the scope of the EMS as there is currently no established way of measuring the aspects and impacts of this.

MannionDaniels is committed to providing its core team with relevant, up to date training and information relating to its EMS to ensure understanding of staff responsibilities and to promote a culture of resource efficiency.
