4th June 2019 – We are confirming our committment to the environment via undertaking to achieve company approval to ISO14001 which is the environmental version of ISO9001.
Our carbon footprint will improve, our use of energy will be monitored and reduced, our scheduling of engineers and their subsequent use of fuel will be more effective, and our disposal of products such as fire extinguishers and batteries will be strictly regulated – to name just a few benefits.
Ultimately we may look to combine our two management systems, ISO9001 & ISO14001, so as to have an effective system that adds value and efficiencies to our business processes as well as helping the immediate (and wider) environment.
Joint MD Dave Green and Southern Regional Manager, Aaron Freeman, are commencing with this initiative in early June and hope to have achieved the approval later this year.
