Noise leads to stress and new studies also indicate increased mortality of residents in areas that are subject to high noise levels. Odours, light and vibration can also be a major adverse impact and reduce the quality of life of neighbouring residents.

Noise, odours, light and vibration may be caused by a wide range of operational activities, including from mechanical processing, compressors, construction work, diesel generators and heavy vehicles delivering or loading products or goods, etc. Odours can also be due to the company's production cycle and waste production, and light may be a problem in terms of night work.

The supplier should monitor the level of noise and other adverse impacts that are a consequence of its activities, and ensure that measures are in place to prevent, mitigate and remedy significant impacts on the surrounding environment.
