Napier Turbochargers achieve accreditation to ISO 14001:2004
We are pleased to announce that Napier Turbochargers, Environmental Management System has recently achieved accreditation to ISO 14001:2004.
The initial commitment to achieving accreditation was made in February 2015 and after a long and extensive project, culminating in a week-long audit undertaken by BSI, the application was approved and accreditation was achieved.
What is ISO 14001?
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system.
It helps improve environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.
An environmental management system helps organizations identify, manage, monitor and control their environmental issues in a holistic manner.It also includes the need for continual improvement of an organization’s systems and approach to environmental concerns.
Benefits of ISO 14001
In addition to the primary reason of helping the organisation become more environmentally friendly, additional benefits are gained by consistent delivery, reduction in errors and re-work, reduced use of raw materials, and production of less waste, achieving positive commercial benefits to both the organisation and its clients.
