Steve Vick International (SVI) are delighted to have gained the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Accreditation.
SVI are committed to continually measuring and improving their environmental performance and have spent several years putting new policies and practices in place in order to reach the high standards set by the ISO.
The ISO 14000 family of standards provides practical tools for companies and organizations of all kinds looking to manage their environmental responsibilities. ISO 14001:2015 focuses on environmental systems to achieve this.
Using the framework provided by the ISO140001:2015, Gary MacAlister, QHSE Manager for SVI, designed and implemented an effective environmental management system (EMS). Prior to implementation, Gary established the objectives of the EMS and performed a process and product review to assist in identifying all elements that currently, or may in the future, interact with the environment.
The EMS has helped SVI understand their environmental impact during the entire lifecycle of their processes and products. This has enabled SVI to identify risks and opportunities and understand how best to address them.
Sean Noonan, Operations Director for Steve Vick International said:
“The Board of Directors and all the staff at SVI are committed to ensuring the availability of natural resources for future generations. We are therefore delighted to have achieved the ISO 14001:2015 accreditation and to be recognised for our commitment to high environmental standards.
We have already seen the many benefits of our Environmental Management System including resource efficiency, a reduction in waste and reduced costs.
We hope that being ISO 14001 accredited will assure our clients that we are fully compliant and operating responsibly.”
SVI’s accreditation will be valid until 29th November 2021.
