Having already achieved quality and information security accreditations, we were keen to extend these credentials to include green issues. We commissioned ISO QA to design and implement ISO 14001 and to include our London operation. This included a comprehensive energy audit and both were funded through the BSS.

We achieved accreditation first time and are now actively operating with the systems ISO designed.

During the energy audit, ISO QA carried out renewable testing for wind and solar which enabled us to identify costs and savings for investments at our offices at Global House.

The office air conditioning units were a key area where energy was being lost, caused by the sun through nearby windows. By applying solar reducing film to the glazing, we were not only able to significantly drop our energy consumption, but also improve staff comfort.
