The Redwood Technologies Group was awarded the ISO14001:2004 certification for its Environmental Management System (EMS) in 2016.
The ISO14001 standard aims to help businesses of any size across any sector to continually improve their environmental performance, whilst also complying with environmental legislation. By making their day-to-day operations more sustainable, businesses can benefit from a reduction in costs, increased brand reputation, and improved management of environmental risk.
ISO14001 provides a framework, known as Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA), for an effective EMS that organisations can follow. PDCA is a cycle that begins with identifying objectives and drafting a plan, followed by implementing the plan. The EMS is then documented and reviewed on a regular basis so that corrections and improvements can be continually made.
The Group’s current EMS has been assessed by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), which is a world-leading, independent provider. The Group demonstrated environmental management by reducing waste and minimising resource consumption to prevent pollution, as well as adhering to strict recycling policy and training employees on how to be more environmentally aware. Records of the Group’s environmental performance are kept and internal auditing is maintained to ensure that it is conforming to the planned arrangements reflected in the ISO14001 requirements. The LRQA-approved certification provides assurance that the Group’s performance not only meets, but will continue to meet, these high standards.
