At Varming Consulting Engineers, we have decades of experience in all manner of sustainable building design methods and our mechanical, electrical and sustainability engineers have the skills and expertise to deliver the very best outcomes for every one of our clients building projects. Varming Consulting Engineers is accredited to ISO 14001:2015, the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS).
Why is being ISO 14001 Certified, so important?
Although organisational accreditation to ISO 14001 is not a mandatory requirement, a lot can be gained from adhering to the standard - even if certification itself isn’t attained. Officially, accreditation, which is achieved by having an independent body evaluate how closely you are adhering to the implementation of ISO 14001 guidelines, illustrates to every party your company deals with, that you meet all contractual and regulatory requirements.
The standard relates to an Environmental Management System (EMS), which allows organisations to control all issues relating to environmental performance in an easy, but comprehensive way.
Other benefits to holding certification include:
Offers a financial and competitive advantage, as a result of minimised costs and increased efficiencies
Environmental issues are integrated into business management, meaning strategic aims of your business are more easily achieved
Encourages engagement with employees and the fostering of the involvement of leadership
Increases the reputation of and confidence in your company in the eyes of your stakeholders via strategic communication
Integrating your suppliers into your own business systems enhances their environmental performance
