We're GREEN!

At Gordale, we believe we all have a responsibility to protect our environment. That’s why we’ve taken the lead with employees and suppliers, making protecting the environment central to our business.

Because we’re so passionate about minimising the impact of our activities, we’re absolutely committed to a continuous process of development. We want our business to grow in a manner that contributes to achieving an environmentally sustainable development, and we wish to reflect this in our business practices through our values and policies.

In developing and operating our environmental policy, we aim to make the requirements of legislation and environmental regulation the minimum standards to be observed – so we always invite new ideas to encourage sustainable development.
