Orchard Facilities Management is to launch a staff working group to manage the business’s impact on the environment and maintain rigorous ISO14001 standards.
The announcement comes as the company marks another successful ISO14001 audit confirming that its Environmental Management System continues to meet the high standards set by the International Organisation for Standardisation.
Justin Holley, operations director at Orchard FM, said the working group would allow the company to uphold standards during a period of rapid growth and keep pace with an evolving marketplace.
Justin said: “Setting up a dedicated team of staff will also enable us to reap even greater cost and environmental benefits from the system.
“As a company specialising in helping clients establish and manage efficient waste, building management and compliance processes it is essential that we continually challenge ourselves to operate the highest possible standards throughout our own business.”
“As we enter a period of high growth we are as committed as ever to delivering solid environmental credentials to keep our environmental impact to a minimum and deliver valued returns.
“Cost savings naturally follow from environmental improvement initiatives and this is something we are keen to help our clients achieve as well,” added Justin.
“We are delighted that our certification has been renewed and will continue to work hard to meet our obligations as a business.
“The objectives of ISO 14001 fit well with our business and complement our activities and the issues we talk to our clients about every day in relation to waste management, compliance and efficiency,” he said.
