Corporate Responsibilities


GDL Air Systems is a privately owned manufacturer and supplier of air distribution systems. Our UK head office and manufacturing facilities are based in Glossop, Derbyshire.

We recognise that in our day-to-day operations we inevitably impact on the environment by our standard operational practices that generate waste, use natural resources, and produce CO2 emissions.

As a responsible company we are fully committed to continual improvement in our environmental performance and taking all reasonably practical steps to prevent environmental pollution and reduce our impact on the global environment.


We aim to achieve this by:

  • Complying with, and where possible exceeding the requirements of all relevant legal and other requirements.
  • Taking appropriate measures to prevent pollution and minimise nuisance.
  • Establishing and maintaining a management system based on the requirements of ISO14001 and auditing our environmental performance.
  • Developing improvement programmes based on the setting and reviewing of annual objectives and targets, which address our significant aspects (and impacts).
  • Making more efficient use of resources by improving raw materials, energy & fuel efficiency and minimising waste generation.
  • Providing information and training to all employees and persons working for, or on our behalf to encourage effective contribution to our environmental goals.
  • Ensuring that employees at all levels and persons working for, or on our behalf consider environmental issues when planning, implementing and undertaking projects.
  • Communicating this policy to all our employees, persons working for or on our behalf, interested parties and members of the public.
  • The Operations Director has overall responsibility for implementing this policy and ensuring that the business is compliant with all UK environmental legislation.
  • Day-to-day activities within production & warehouse areas are controlled by the factory manager.
