Social & Environmental Management System

The Squires Group Environmental Management System

To identify and effectively manage the potential environmental impact of our operations, we have established an Environmental Management System (EMS). It is a vital element in the company’s efforts to achieve results consistent with environmental leadership.

Potential Environmental Impacts: Squires Group operations could potentially impact the environment in two ways:

  • The creation of Scope 2 Green House Gases through our use of electricity
  • The creation of excess trash by not implementing an effective recycling program

Corporate Policy and Instructions

Our environmental policy provides the framework for environmental management system and environmental affairs objectives. These objectives address conservation of energy and environmental protection. This policy is supported by corporate instructions, practices and standards that govern our operations and are basic to our environmental management program.

Responsibilities and Integration

The Squires Group EMS involves our employees. Its structure and programs are designed to integrate environmental considerations throughout the company’s operations. Our corporate staff establishes our environmental affairs strategy and the EMS requirements. They also monitor implementation. All employees are required to comply with environmental laws and with our environmental program. Environmental performance and programs are reviewed by the Chief Executive Officer and President.

Environmental Training

Relevant environmental training is integral to the proper functioning of the EMS. All Squires employees are periodically required to read and acknowledge their compliance with our EMS. This includes the awareness of and compliance with our corporate environmental policy and other environmental requirements. Environmental training consists of the following:

  • The importance of conformance to the environmental policy and procedures and with the requirements of the EMS
  • The environmental aspects, and actual or potential impacts of their work activities
  • Their roles and responsibilities in achieving conformance with the environmental policy and procedures and with the requirements of the EMS

Monitoring and Measuring Effective Implementation of the EMS

We employ two mechanisms to monitor and measure the effective implementation of our EMS:

  • Internal Audits: conducted annually based on analysis of the use of electricity and recycle bins.
  • Senior Executive Review: conducted annually to verify implementation of our EMS.

Audit Results

During 2013, Squires Group consumed .2% more KWH than during 2012. During the same period, there were 16% more days with temperatures below 32 or above 85 degrees. This means Squires Group employees are conscious of their use of electricity and are conserving to the extent feasible.

Fine Disclosure

The Squires Group has not paid any fines.
