Ensuring environmental sustainability is of key importance to Green Machine. Prior to any work performed, we conduct an Environmental Impact Assessment to ensure that the natural environment is preserved as required by legislation, council regulations and also, by our Client’s requirements. We ensure we only use approved chemical treatments that do not have a negative effect on the environment (air, earth or water), plants or animals. We also ensure minimal use of water, and we recommend to our clients wherever possible, drought tolerant plants are used for minimum environmental impact. All staff are trained in correct removal of waste, as well as correct handling of chemicals and hazardous substances, and noise management. Green Machine complies with council noise management requirements, and uses standard lawn mowing equipment which is regularly maintained such that air emissions are minimised.
As a University of Queensland contractor our Environmental Policy has been approved by their Environmental Scientist on staff in the Environmental Science Faculty. Policy is attached.
