Crowcon – a world leader in portable and fixed gas detection instruments – has achieved certification to the ISO 14001 standard, which provides a framework for establishing, implementing and maintaining an Environmental Management System (EMS).
“Certification provides customers with the assurance that Crowcon’s environmental management system meets international, industry-specific environmental standards,” explains Barry Swift, Crowcon’s Supply Chain Director. “In addition to helping to ensure best practice in environmental management, ISO 14001 accreditation is another element of the Crowcon supply chain team’s journey in helping deliver the highest levels of corporate social responsibility both within Crowcon and its supplier base.
The ISO 14001 standard encompasses a number of factors which have enabled Crowcon to minimise the environmental impact of its business. These factors include identifying areas where greater emphasis can be placed on reducing the use of resources and energy, as well as increasing the efficiency with which Crowcon manages waste. The standard also requires legislative awareness and compliance, in addition to on-going monitoring and control of the company’s environmental impact, now and into the future.
“Crowcon’s focus is on supporting a safer working environment for our customers’ employees, so it is only natural to extend that level of commitment and care to the wider environment,” Barry concludes.
