Environmental Award for Grant Instruments
News Jan 11, 2013
Grant Instruments has been awarded ISO 14001 certification following an assessment by an independent body.
This certification has only been achieved by less than 1% of UK businesses and this prestigious award is supported by the Government and recognized world-wide.
Ludo Chapman, Managing Director, Grant Instruments, said: “We have always been proud of the service we offer our clients and the way that we conduct our business with regard to environmental matters. Now with the award of ISO 14001 certification, this has been confirmed by outside experts who judge standards on a daily basis in a wide variety of trades and industries.”
QMS International plc paid particular tribute to “the investment in people and training that enables Grant Instruments to provide an efficient and environmentally friendly service to their customers”.
ISO14001 was established to bring together all the elements of a company that have an impact on society into a single environmental management system and to demonstrate that sound environmental policies are good for business.
It encompasses energy and water conservation, waste management and recycling, as well as compliance with environmental legislation and regulations.
