 Environment Statement

Joseph Rochfords is dedicated to the production and supply of best quality plants and related products. The business is intrinsically linked to environmental well being and we aim to ensure that our commercial activities are managed with maximum efficiency.

We recognise that in our daily operations we will inevitably impact on the environment in a number of ways. We have a responsibility to minimise the potentially harmful effects of such activities wherever and whenever possible.

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

Our Environmental Policy provides the basis for efficient, profitable nursery stock production that is economically viable and environmentally responsible. The policy includes all aspects of the business to form a cohesive and sustainable integrated crop management system. The aim is high quality production with the emphasis on careful control of inputs to minimise waste and pollution and to enhance energy efficiency.

Rochfords has been a certified member of the BOPP Quality Management scheme (British Ornamental Plant Producers) since 2004. The scheme examines all aspects of the business including environmental, legal and ethical policies. The BOPP audit methodology encourages continuous improvement of the business and its policies.  

The Environmental Statement and Policy are supported by internal audits on Conservation, Energy, Pollution and Waste, and an Environmental Action Plan. The environmental impact of the company is monitored through annual reviews of the Environmental Policy and associated documents, so that improvements can be identified and implemented.
