Our environmental policy

Our environmental policy is to ensure that all of our activities and decisions make a positive contribution to the Sustainable Development Strategy for Northern Ireland.

Concern for environmental conditions and best use of resources is part of our business strategy.

Our policy is to:

  • maintain an independently certified environmental management system for the Housing Centre
  • remain committed to legal compliance and continual improvement of our environmental management system throughout Housing Executive business areas
  • train all staff in sustainable development awareness and provide specialist training as needed
  • develop and maintain targets in keeping with the Northern Ireland Sustainable Development Strategy
  • apply the reduce, re-use, recycle approach to waste streams
  • prevent pollution of air, land and water
  • support initiatives to develop sustainable local communities
  • offer environmental and sustainable advise to business, community and voluntary sector stakeholder organisations
  • enhance and protect biodiversity cross all Housing Executive landholdings
