Environmental protection is management’s responsibility as well as the responsibility of every Carey International employee. Carey is committed to continual improvement in environmental performance and waste reduction and the integration of environmental aspects into our business activities. We actively seek ways to reduce our environmental impact on air, soil and water from our in-house operations. As a company whose operations necessarily involve extensive use of fossil fuel, our primary focus is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
We seek to ensure the efficient implementation of our environmental policy via an environmental management system that includes sound objectives, programs and monitoring. We ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and furthermore, we integrate environmental aspects in internal communication and training. We welcome open dialogue and communicate actively with all relevant stakeholders.

Conduct its operations in accordance with applicable environmental protection laws, regulations and standards and provide a mechanism for self-monitoring to ensure compliance and continual improvement.
