The 14th Eastleigh Scout Group – Environmental policy
The 14th Eastleigh Scout Group recognises that environment issues are fundamental to the future health and well being for those involved in our Group, the greater community and our planet. Thus we seek to understand the impact of our activities on the environment at local, regional and global levels, to minimise these impacts and to find sustainable solutions to environmental concerns. We accept the responsibility of demonstrating leadership in environmental protection and enhancement through our actions as a Group.
In support of these principles the Group is committed to: Promoting the protection of the natural and cultural environment at the Group Headquarters and at other sites used by the Group. Continually improving the Groups environmental performance. Complying with all environmental legislation relating to the Groups activities. Reducing and where possible preventing pollution. Monitoring the Groups environmental performance and practice at regular intervals. Increasing awareness of environmental responsibilities among Group members and users of the Scout headquarters.
