Environmental sustainability is a core component of Aston Martin Lagonda’s wider business strategy and we take our environmental obligations seriously. We have developed an environmental policy in order to drive forward our commitment to operating as a responsible business. This environmental policy covers every aspect of the Company’s operations, whether they are directly or indirectly involved in the design, engineering, manufacture, servicing or restoration of our products or the distribution of parts.
We are strident in our pursuit of continuous improvement in our environmental performance and dedicated to the elimination of pollution and waste at source in line with our business objectives, using recognised environmental best practices where ever possible.
Our objectives and commitments to the environment and the community are to:
Comply as a minimum with all relevant environmental legislation as well as other environmental requirements, whilst continuing to strive beyond these targets wherever possible.
Commits to on-going reductions in energy and resource consumption in the manufacture and operation of our vehicles, and an ongoing reduction in our carbon footprint.
Set, monitor and attain all objectives and targets for managing our environmental performance, to ensure strict control over the environmental aspects of all products, processes and facilities.
Minimise the impact of Aston Martin Lagonda activities, products and services through effective waste management.
Give due consideration to environmental issues and energy performance in acquisition, design, refurbishment, location and use of buildings.
Promote sustainable product design and construction with consideration from a life cycle perspective, using low carbon and renewable energy resources wherever possible.
Operate and maintain an environmental system in line with ISO14001:2015
Communicate internally and externally our environmental policy, working with our employees, suppliers and partners to promote improved environmental performance and encourage feedback.
This policy statement represents our general position on environmental issues, and the policies and practices we will apply in conducting our business.
This policy statement will be reviewed each year by the Aston Martin Lagonda Environmental Department.
