Scott Direct has successfully achieved ISO 14001 certification – the international standard for designing and implementing an environmental management system.
Rob Sayles, Managing Director at Scott Direct, commented: “As part of our strategy for continuous improvement, securing ISO 14001 certification is critical, and provides assurance to our employees, customers and other external stakeholders, that we are closely monitoring the environmental impact of our activities, and actively making on-going improvements.”
Graham Walker, Regional Assessor, said: “This audit has involved a review of system administration activities, a review and sample of site activities and walkover at Scott Direct, as well as a review of related records.
“The organisation’s context is well-defined; leadership has been effectively demonstrated and commitment levels are evident as part of a mature IMS (integrated management system). Evidence was clearly available to demonstrate that the key policy commitments are being adhered to.
“There is good availability of documented information to demonstrate that the system is well implemented and well understood throughout the organisation.”
Marie Spaven, Service Manager at Scott Direct, added: “It’s great to see our team embrace the ISO14001 certification process and enthusiastically support the on-going delivery of our environmental strategy on a day-to-day basis.”
