O.L.D. Engineering Gains ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Accreditation
Through adopting a focus on environmental systems and their impact, O.L.D. Engineering is delighted to announce that it has achieved the necessary standards to successfully gain ISO 14001:2015 accreditation.
The ISO 14000 family of standards provide practical tools for companies and organisations of all kinds, who are looking to manage their environmental responsibilities.
The journey to ISO 14001:2015 accreditation
The journey to ISO 14001:2015 accreditation has helped O.L.D. Engineering improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and a reduction in waste, gaining a competitive advantage as well as the trust of key stakeholders.
Upon gaining the accreditation, O.L.D. Engineering’s Chris Topp said, “By scrutinising the process of our supply chain and production practices down to the finest details, we have been able to develop new processes that have given us tighter control over the environmental impact of O.L.D. Engineering. Throughout the ISO 14001:2015 certification process we have made improvements to our products and services, decreased our environmental impact and in some instances, we have even reduced our operating costs.”
This latest standard is now held alongside O.L.D. Engineering’s existing management and quality accreditations such as ISO 9001, Fit 4 Nuclear and the 21st Century Supply Chains (SC21) Bronze Award.
O.L.D. Engineering also utilises the ISO 14001:2015 environmental management system as the foundation on which employee skills and knowledge is built. This is achieved through training and awareness programmes focusing on identifying and understanding the environmental impact of their activities.
In 1971, Founding Partner Mr W. G. Lusty said “Strong re-investment, commitment to quality, and the introduction of new technology gave us a lead against our competitors, ensuring our success for future growth.” An ethos that is clearly still present at O.L.D. Engineering today, 47 years later.
