A decade of compliance for Green-tech

by Matt Downs

Green-tech has be awarded ISO accreditation for the 10th year running following a rigorous audit.

Green-tech says it is delighted to have been awarded ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 status for the 10th year running.

ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are two of the ISO’s most well-known standards and are said to be  implemented by more than a million organisations in over 170 countries.

ISO 9001 is a Quality Management System (QMS) which gives organisations a systematic approach for meeting customer objectives and providing consistent quality. ISO 14001 is an Environmental Management System (EMS) for measuring and improving environmental impact.

Green-tech says it had to undertake a rigorous audit to retain its accreditation status, which it  first achieved in 2011.  The company says the requirements have changed over the last decade and it has successfully kept up to date and adapted to meet these changes.

ISO 9001 requires Green-tech to demonstrate that it has a Quality Management System which ensures consistency and improvement in its service. Green-tech says it has committed to continuous improvement and can have its ISO status removed if it is unable to demonstrate that progress is maintained.

ISO 14001 requires Green-tech to manage its environmental impact, and the company had to demonstrate that it has an environmental policy in place and a plan to manage its  environmental impact. 

The British Assessment Bureau is a leading Certification Body that carries out the independent assessment to confirm and document that Green-tech runs its business in accordance with these rigorous standards. 

Mark Wood, Business Development Director commented: “We take our corporate responsibility very seriously and working within the ISO framework helps Green-tech to deliver high levels of business performance and customer service. It is not an easy thing to achieve, and we are one of a handful of landscaping companies with this accreditation to our name, so I am delighted that we met the audit’s in-depth scrutiny to retain our ISO status. We hope it gives our stakeholders, customers and suppliers independent reassurance of our commitment to delivering quality products and service, and our pledge to reducing our environmental  impact whilst becoming a more sustainable organisation.”
