Anglia Drain Doctor Achieves ISO 14001 Environmental Accreditation

Here at Anglia Drain Doctor we’re starting 2019 as we mean to go on, and are proud to announce that we have been granted the ISO 14001 (International Organisation for Standardisation) accreditation and environmental standard in recognition of our commitment to protecting the environment.

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard that outlines how to put an effective environmental management system in place. It is designed to help businesses remain commercially successful without overlooking their environmental responsibilities.

How did we achieve this?

In order to achieve ISO 14001 accreditation, we undertook a comprehensive audit and inspection at our offices in Woodbridge. The policies, procedures and controls that we currently have in place were reviewed, and our team were able to demonstrate a systematic approach to environmental management. This showed our dedication to sustainable development and our improved strategic approach to environmental issues.

Rob Simpson, Director of Anglia Drain Doctor, said: “Environmental sustainability is an ongoing challenge in our industry and is something that we are committed to continually improving upon. We take pride in reducing the environmental impact we have on the world through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, and with the successful accreditation of the ISO 14001 standard, that dedication has been confirmed.”

To ensure we continue our dedication to the ISO 14001 standard, an annual external audit will be carried out by a third party to guarantee that everything is still in place, and that any improvements needed are addressed by our team.

Rob added: “Environmental management is extremely important and something we actively encourage at every level of our business, from technicians through to the office staff. I am delighted that our ongoing commitments have been recognised and it is testament to the enthusiasm of all our employees who each day support the various environmental initiatives we have put in place.”
