PDMS achieve LQRA Environmental Accreditation 14001
12 march 2012
PDMS is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) standard after completing a rigorous audit and assessment process by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance (LRQA).
ISO 14001 is an internationally recognized standard and requires an organization to identify and control the environmental impact of its activities and work towards continually improving its environmental performance.
The 14001 certification is the culmination of a 12 month project for PDMS which has involved analyzing and monitoring the company's environmental impact, implementing an environmental management system and setting a number of targets and objectives. PDMS have introduced a number of new 'green' initiatives including; stepping up their recycling efforts, reducing energy consumption and minimizing the usage of materials.
Neal Kelly, Infrastructure and Facilities Manager at PDMS, commented "We have had an ongoing commitment to reducing our environmental impact for some time and we are delighted to have received formal recognition for our efforts in the form of 14001 certification." He continued, "We have significantly boosted our green credentials across every aspect of the business from investing in improved online conferencing facilities to help reduce travel, particularly between our head office and the London office, right through to composting our organic waste".
PDMS clients are increasingly aware of the needs for improved environmental standards. They can now be confident that PDMS not only complies with environmental best practices and policies, but is also constantly striving for improved performance, thanks to documented processes and procedures.
PDMS already holds the quality standard ISO 9001 and the security standard ISO 27001 and has integrated ISO 14001 into its existing, comprehensive quality management system.
