Q Associates achieves ISO 14001 Environmental certification
December 17, 2021
Q Associates is delighted to announce that we have successfully passed certification for the ISO 14001:2015 standard for Environmental Management. This achievement is in recognition of our commitment to improve sustainability in all aspects of our work.
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard for environmental management systems (EMS). It helps organisations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
“To achieve this highly complex standard is a truly outstanding result” said David Cue, Managing Director at Q Associates. “With a proactive environmental management system in place we are reducing waste, improving efficiency, and running a leaner operation overall to help ensure the environment is protected for future generations”, adding “We recognise that our effect on the environment is limited by the nature of our business, however, implementing a proactive EMS has helped achieve real cost savings, creates greater engagement with staff and customers, and positions Q Associates among those business that care enough to reduce their environmental footprint.”
Environmental issues have come to the forefront in recent years with greater awareness amongst customers, employees, and the public. Complying with environmental legislation and looking at ways of reducing negative impacts on the environment are amongst the most important challenges facing businesses today.
Managing environmental impact is a priority for businesses across all sectors. An effective EMS is based on a continual improvement cycle, and the Q Associates team is committed to driving further increases in efficiency and reducing environmental impact.
