KD Optics Design and Engineering Ltd


Environmental policy


Introduction and aim

KD Optics Design and Engineering Ltd is a fibre optic test equipment Company, operating from a site in Walshford, near Wetherby, West Yorkshire.
Our main products are hand-held optical power meters and light sources for the Telecommunications and Datacommunications industry.
We recognise that our operations result in emissions to air and water, and the generation of waste. It is our aim to comply with legislation and other
requirements, continue to reduce the environmental impacts of our business and operate in an environmentally responsible manner.
This policy describes how we will achieve our aim.



This environmental policy applies to all of our operations including management, office services, printing, delivery and procurement. David Robinson, MD,
is responsible for ensuring that the policy is implemented. However, all employees have a responsibility in their area to ensure that the aims and objectives
of the policy are met.



We will ensure that resources are available to enable us to achieve our objectives and targets.



During 2012 and 2013, we aim to:

· reduce solvent consumption and the emission of volatile organic compounds

· reduce the generation of general and hazardous (special) wastes

· inform all customers and suppliers of our commitment to reducing our environmental impact



To achieve our aims, we have set ourselves the following targets:

· define good housekeeping for solvent and use, and where possible use natural biodegradable solvents.

· ensure all employees receive training in good housekeeping by May 2012 and incorporate this training into the induction programme for new starters.

· Re-use packaging where ever possible


Monitoring and auditing

Progress against these objectives will be monitored through 3 monthly management meetings.



This environmental policy is available on request. If you wish to obtain a copy or would like to discuss our progress against our objectives,
please telephone 01937 587003. This policy is also available on our website at http://www.kdoptics.com
