As detailed in our Environmental Policy, Options is committed to continual improvement, the prevention of pollution and compliance with legislation (e.g. Waste Carriers Licence).

We are currently on course to achieve accreditation to the Environmental standard ISO 14001 and have set ourselves an ambitious target of reducing our carbon footprint by 15% year-on-year. In order to help us achieve this goal, two major directives were embarked upon.

Firstly, in conjunction with WRAP (the government led Waste & Resources Action Programme) we set up a Recycling Facility which helps to reduce both waste to landfill and numbers of lorry movements whilst at the same time allowing us to manufacture certificated recycled products.

Secondly, we developed a Directional Drilling (‘No-Dig’) arm to the business, benefits of which include a positive impact on the surrounding wildlife and communities and a reduced need for primary aggregates.
