ISO 14001:2004 is the international standard for the Environmental Management System, which looks at the way a company interacts with its’ environment. To hear more about our products and services please click here to contact us.
At ReAgent, we review various aspects of our operation which interact with the environment, for example, our use of energy, the generation of waste, waste management, transport and spill management. We then consider how these aspects interact with the environment. Taking the use of energy as an example, this would involve the use of resources including gas, water, electricity and so on. We then look at any areas of potential waste and what would happen were we not to consider these elements in our operation.
Our ISO 14001:2004 accreditation is underpinned by our Environmental Policy which details what we are doing to manage our environment correctly and responsibly.
There are many benefits to our accreditation to ISO 14001:2004. There is a positive impact on the image of the company, which in this day and age of increasing environmental concern helps keep us competitive, plus a lot more companies look at environmental factors when doing business and auditing. There is also an increasing number of companies who will only conduct business with suppliers who are registered to this standard. There are further financial benefits too – if you can manage the situation to stop or reduce waste, such as introducing more energy efficient ways of working, it adds directly to the bottom line – plus the obvious benefit of minimising the impact we have on our environment.
