Environmental Policy

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY STATEMENT

We at United Alliance Co., are conscious of our social responsibilities with regards to helping the environment through our working practices. Our objective is not only to sustain our environment for our descendants but also to rehabilitate the damage previously done. We believe that our corporate responsibility goes beyond our proprietary borders and therefore every effort will be made to conserve resources throughout our operations.

UAC would try to not only meet existing environmental laws and regulation, but will endeavour to go beyond the status quo and see techniques and approaches that position us ahead of our competition.

Growth of our company depends on our abilities to minimise or eliminate our impacts on our surroundings. Our ultimate success depends on the environment of the KSA, without a beautiful country, our customers will cease to come. Our company’s future and the future of our environment are interconnected. Following are our specific ideals: 

 

Awareness and Commitment

Our policy towards the environment will be readily available and promoted to all stakeholders. We will endeavour to ensure staff and guests are familiar with and implement our environmental commitment and objectives. 

Practical Implementation:

  • UAC environmental policy will be available to view on our website.
  • UAC environmental policy will be present at our work station. 

 

Transport

UAC would endeavour to reduce the impact on the environment where ever possible with respect to UAC activities.

Practical Implementation: 

  • Seek and employ local products and services to reduce transport
  • UAC will avoid unnecessary travel, and will use energy efficient vehicles and driving styles.
  • Encourage the use of walking for going closeby.
  • To eliminate unnecessary and inefficient use of UAC owned motor vehicles, and wherever possible, that of other vehicles (including guest vehicles) associated with UAC.

 

Energy & Water Consumption

UAC accepts a share of the KSA's commitment to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions both by attaining greater efficiency in total energy consumption and by continuing to examine the possibility of acquiring electricity from 'green' sources when finances permit. 

Practical Implementation: 

  • UAC will make every effort to use water efficiently and avoid pollutants entering the drainage system.
  • UAC will use energy efficient products where ever practical, and monitor usage to achieve minimum energy consumption. 

 

Waste Generation and Management

UAC would try to minimize the production of waste and pollution; including unnecessary packaging.  UAC always implement measures to reduce the volume of waste generated and to increase the proportion of that waste which is recycled.

Practical Implementation:

  • UAC always look to compost organic waste.
  • UAC would prefer recyled products where possible. 

 

Materials and Resources

UAC always try to minimize environmental impact with regard to sourcing materials and resources.

Practical Implementation: 

UAC always avoid using materials which have an undesirable effect on the environment, and wherever possible use locally made recycled goods.

  • UAC always try to use contractors who also share a commitment to the environment, and take into account lifetime costs of materials when repairing, altering or rebuilding premises.
  • UAC always maximize use of electronic communication and information storage as an alternative to paper, and take into account the environmental quality and impact of food products and where possible to purchase food which has been grown locally.

 

Natural Environment:

UAC always help to protect and enhance natural habitats and wildlife, take appropriate opportunities to enhance them and be sensitive to landscape issues. Look to minimize impact on local wildlife, and to look for opportunities to work with the local community in caring for the local environment. UAC will endeavour to be aware of local planning developments and take appropriate action where these are potentially damaging to the environment.
