The team over at our European Springs London site were recently given some amazing news – they had been accredited with the ISO 14001:2015 certificate. This was in response to their effective and extremely successful Environmental Management System that they had introduced at their London based site in Beckenham.
What is the Certificate?
ISO 14001:2015 is accredited due to an effective Environmental Management System, a system that is described as being a “standard of requirements” that define and establish how companies can reduce their environmental impact through the operations that they carry out every day. It establishes both targets and objectives that need to be met in order to maintain compliance to the certificate.
What are the Benefits?
The idea behind a successful Environmental Management System is to reduce the impact on the environment, such as minimising waste, reducing pollution and correctly using both energy and raw materials.
There are lots of different reasons for why it’s beneficial for companies to seek the certification. These include:
- Improving the reputation of your company.
- Demonstrate your compliance with both regulatory and statutory requirements.
- Gives you a financial advantage due to reduced costs.
- Encourages more efficient environmental performance.
How Will It Benefit European Springs?
Through gaining the certification, European Springs will use the standards outlined to help them improve their resource efficiency, reduce waste and manage environmental obligations consistently. This will help to promote an ethical standing within European Springs.
We would like to offer huge congratulations to all of our team members over in London – it’s a fantastic achievement that we hope we can follow on from very soon. In fact, ensuring that all of our sites continue to develop and progress is something that we are committed to doing, which is why Leeds and Cornwall will be also working towards achieving the ISO certification. Well done to everyone involved!
