The company aims to prevent pollution and comply with all environmental legislation and monitor processes to ensure that our systems of operation are environmentally safe and completed works are of maximum environmental gain.

WH Bond and Sons Ltd will continually work for both of these standards to ensure that we meet all of the requirements. We are proud of our environmental track record and aim to improve it. Examples of environmental improvements made by our company over the last ten years:
– Planting of over 35 acres of hardwood trees on our farmland
– Creation of over 20 acres of aquatic habitat
– Hosting one of two LIFE (Less Intensive Farming & the Environment) pioneer farms along with Long Ashton Research Centre
– Recycling maximum amounts of wastes particularly green waste enabling a considerable improvement in Cornwall’s recycling rate and reducing the amount of off-farm inputs required
We aim to continue and improve our environmental awareness by continuing to make all members of the company aware of how their actions can affect the environment through on-site education and training. This policy will be regularly updated and the opportunity to achieve formal accreditation for environmental performance will be investigated.
