In April 2020 we demonstrated our commitment to the environment by undertaking ISO 14001 assessments to prove we have effective environmental management systems in place.
What are ISO Standards?
Over the last few years, ISO standards have become increasingly important in the business world as organisations look to prove that they are maintaining good working practices that benefit both employees, suppliers and customers.
As ISO standards go, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are among the most highly valued across the business community as they showcase a dedication to quality and environmental management. And we are delighted to announce that as of April 2020 The Energy Check was successfully reaccredited for ISO 9001 and added ISO 14001 accreditation to our list of accolades.
In spite of the unprecedented situation that we find ourselves in as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe it is important to retain our commitment to raising standards and striving to be better across our business, which is why a three and a half day assessment was carried out external assessors from 20th April 2020.
During the course of the assessment no non-compliances were identified with only four areas identified for improvement which is testament to the company’s commitment to drive up standards and the support from our partners at Pentagon Assurance.
Barry Cooper, Managing Director of Pentagon Assurance said:
“UKAS accreditation of ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems is the gold standard of certification for a system which supports enhanced business performance, through improving the efficient use of resources and the reduction of waste. The investment made by The Energy Check also provides assurance to their wide range of stakeholders in the highly regulated energy sector.
“On time delivery of this project is testament to the strength of teamwork and partnership developed with The Energy Check, who hold sustainability and compliance at the core of their values. Engagement at all levels has enabled successful integration of UKAS ISO 14001:2015 to the established UKAS ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management framework. Our congratulations and thanks to everyone involved.”
Achieving certification is never an easy task and it requires huge amounts of hard work, dedication and skill from our close-knit teams. We would like to thank all of our employees for their help in keeping the business running smoothly during this challenging period and we are proud that the events of recent months has not diminished the high standards we have set for ourselves.
David Winton, CEO of The Energy Check, said: “I am delighted with this outcome, particularly at such a difficult time nationally. However once again our customers can take comfort that not only do we hold ourselves to the highest standards for systems management but also have effective environmental management systems in place too.”
