FGV Cambridge Nanosystems has achieved the internationally recognised ISO 14001 certification in May 2016.
This independent assessment was conducted by the leading Certification Body, the British Assessment Bureau, and demonstrates our commitment to customer service, quality in delivery and environmental performance of supply chain.
ISO 14001 was first introduced 1996 as a British Standard and requires organisations to have an environmental policy and action plan to manage their impact on their environment. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.
FGV Cambridge Nanosystems has shown that it has good product and service reliability and process controls which means lower costs for its customers!
Anna Mieczakowski, our Chief Operations Officer who implemented the ISO 14001 standard, said: “We are particularly pleased to have achieved ISO 14001 certification as it underlines our commitment to our customers and our focus on quality and environmental issues. Not many customers get to see their suppliers’ ‘back-office’ activities. This recognition demonstrates we can provide a quality solution from quotation to delivery in an environmentally conscious way”.
The benefits of registration to the ISO 14001 standard include:
- Improvement in environmental performance of supply chain.
- Consistency in product and service delivery.
- Cost savings with greater emphasis on resource, waste and energy management.
- Quantification, monitoring and control of the impact of operations on the environment, now and in the future.
- Legislative awareness and compliance.
- Competitive advantage.
