Welcome to Owben’s environmental policy.

Owben are fully committed to continual improvement to enhance our environmental performance, through constant review, in order to provide an effectively controlled environmental management system and service.  This Environmental Policy Statement is applicable to all areas of our business and has been implemented to meet the requirements of the ISO 14001:2015. It is our Policy to:

Prevent pollution 


Protect the Environment in all aspects of our business and in particular to significant aspects of our operations, to prevent any adverse environmental effects


Recycle / reuse materials wherever practical 


Minimise the environmental impact, for the life cycle (including disposal) of all plant, equipment, and other physical assets under our control 


Comply with legislation regulations & relevant Codes of Practice, at all times (our compliance obligations)


MONITORING OUR PROGRESS – Objectives, Targets and Management Programmes

Annual environmental objectives will be set and reviewed by management at the required and designated intervals.

We will employ specialists (where necessary) to assist with environmental matters. We will ensure that we adhere to our Policy and Programmes, and address resulting actions identified through it.

We have included within our system measures to control abnormal and emergency situations.

It is our aim to also consult and communicate our Policy with our Client’s and their representative’s, our sub-contractors and our suppliers and all persons working for or on behalf of our Company, to promote environmental awareness, to gain their support to meet our objectives.  All of our employees have been briefed and are fully aware of our Environmental Policy.



We will consult with Local and National Government bodies, enforcing and regulatory authorities, and specialists to seek advice and assistance towards achievement of our Environmental Management Programme to its full potential.  We will, at all times, comply with regulations, legislation, codes of practice and other requirements associated with the Company and its’ operations.  Where no laws, regulations or codes of practice exist, we will develop our own standards to allow for the best practicable and financially viable environmental option, not entailing significant and detrimental costs to the Company, whilst considering public, local and interested parties opinions.


Mr Richard Walsh, Mr Lee Finney & Mr John Hope

As you're probably aware, we have a strong believe in the benefits that apprenticeships can bring to a business.

Here's a snapshot of what it means to us at Owben.

#Apprenticeships are often billed as the universal solution to skills gaps. But do we need to change our approach? Could we be using apprenticeships to more strategically manage skills gaps in our organisations?
