Having considered improving our environmental impact, I contacted ISO QA to understand the processes involved. Following a gap analysis which revealed a number of issues regarding chemical and solid waste, we worked together to implement ISO 14001 over a 12 month period. Accreditation was achieved first time and it has since helped us to understand our carbon footprint and the ways in which it can be reduced.

I’m thrilled to say this has not only allowed us to reduce our energy bill, but also helped us to gain further business from clients who demand a green approach from their suppliers.

As part of the continuous improvement plan, we’ve also installed Energy Eye and are investing in recovering waste heat from our production processes.
