GOYH Environment Policy and Performance

As an office, we in GOYH, are committed to improving our own environmental performance as a fundamental part of everything we do

Our objectives are to:

  • Reduce the impact of our activities on the environment through control of our   activities, our procurement procedures and our resource use and management of waste.
  • Achieve continual improvement in environmental performance.
  • Raise awareness of our environmental objectives both externally and internally via Green Travel and Green Day events; staff updates via intranet and Lateral Thinking; GOYH News.

As part of this we are working to:

  • Continually improve the quality and robustness of performance reporting and identify further areas where environmental performance assessment is practicable
  • Continually develop formal mechanisms as part of annual review process for reviewing and amending key issues and priorities for environmental performance improvement


The main Senior Management Team member with specific responsibility for environmental issues is David Fraser (Deputy Regional Director for Environment and Corporate Affairs).

Business in the Community Yorkshire and the Humber Environment Index

Every year GOYH participates in the above index which is a voluntary, business-led benchmark of environmental engagement and ranks the regions companies, universities and public sector organisations on the basis of both environmental management and performance criteria. The GOYH submissions and feedback for each year's index from 2005 will appear on this page (see related documents below).
