Our unbroken record shows commitment to our 'Quality Matters in your Business' slogan.
The environmental management system is harder to get than ISO9001 and differs from the quality management standard in that continual improvement must be carried out.
There can be no sliding back. The assessor made the point fairly well: 'You have set the bar at this level and the only way you can progress is to improve on it'.
It is a well-known fact that many organisations insist on 9001 and 14001 as an entry qualification for tenders. This client already has 9001 and now has added 14001. These two qualifications will allow tendering for contracts to be far more successful.
This client can also reap the benefits of ISO14001 and the three R's:
- Repair - where possible, rather than scrap
- Re-use – if this is possible
- Recycle- ensure that waste is recycled
- Reduce – energy and resource usage
