Environmental Policy

Allensmore Nurseries is a wholesale grower of perennial plants and bedding, based in the rural county of Herefordshire. We supply a large number of retailers throughout the British Isles. We employ about 150 staff with fluctuations dependant on seasonality and operate from a total production area of 60 acres within sites totalling around 74 acres.

Protection of the environment, surrounding communities, and ecosystems in which we live and operate is part of Allensmore’s values and principles.

Our Environmental Policy is to strive to provide high quality plants and services which cause minimum negative effect on our environment.

We recognise that our working practices will inevitably impact on the environment in several ways: pesticide use, carbon emissions, light, waste, water usage and, peat use.
It is our responsibility to minimise the potentially harmful effects of such activities wherever and whenever possible to reduce our impact, on the environment and the biodiversity, which exists within that environment.
Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.

We comply with all aspects of EU and UK law, regulations and codes of practice governing the following: pesticide use, pollution, waste, associated issues, and the health and safety of our employees, our customers and those affected by our operations.

Furthermore we aim to improve environmental performance year on year through improving efficiencies across the business and increasing an awareness amongst the staff, customers, suppliers and contractors of what the policy and plan is striving towards. Through monitoring the variety and number of species across our sites we will be able to determine that our production sites have a healthy and continually developing ecosystem.

We would expect a similar approach to environmental standards from all our suppliers and contractors.

The environmental statements are supported by internal audits on conservation, energy, pollution and waste and an annual carbon calculation. This policy will be reviewed and updated on an annual basis.
