Environmental Policy

We recognise that our organisational activities, the services we deliver and the facilities within which we operate, have a significant impact upon the environment.

As part of our commitment to the environment, Oldham Community Leisure pledges to comply with all relevant environmental legislation, implement responsible operational management and promote the efficient use of resources, measurement and controls to both reduce energy consumption and prevent pollution.

Our Objectives

In meeting our own commitment, OCL aims to implement and develop a six-step environmental management strategy:


Set our policy with commitment from the highest level and embed environmental principles within our strategic objectives and review on an annual basis


Establish an effective environmental management structure, with key responsibilities identified and communicated

Environmental procedures

Provide procedures which identify how environmental initiatives will be achieved and deliver our legislative responsibility

Performance Measurement

Monitor progress at improving environmental controls and through external audit and benchmarking through accredited frameworks

Audit & Review

Review the effectiveness of our action plan through regular audits, such as via Green Dragon Award and QUEST to measure continuous improvement

Action Planning

Identify opportunities for improvement, allocate responsibilities that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely


The actions from our Environmental Policy will run concurrently with the individual targets allocated through the normal business planning process and are directly influenced via the Environmental Procedures, standards and implemented practice as governed through the company Quality System.
