Deceuninck achieves ISO 14001 Environmental Management System accreditation

Deceuninck is celebrating a significant achievement: gaining ISO 14001 accreditation. Jon Skinner, the company’s Managing Director, said, “With our global vision of building a sustainable home, gaining ISO 14001 accreditation was something that we just had to do as it shows that as an organisation we are committed to being not only as environmentally aware as possible, but to the on-going process of continual improvement, not just in our products but in our business practices also.”

The accreditation marks the end of a year long process, during which all parts of the organisation have been reviewed, discussed and assessed. From small areas such as rain water, general rubbish and on site recycling to the use of electricity, PVC-U recycling and working practices, the team has undertaken the process with customary attention to detail and commitment.

One of the results of the process has been to draw up a comprehensive environment policy and train members of staff in the requirements of good environmental management. Jon said, “By providing continuous education and training of our employees, our mission is to become more than a profitable business, but to be a good steward of the environment. Embracing this principal, as a minimum standard, we will endeavour to comply with and regularly review environmental legislation, contribute to a sustainable industry and low carbon economy.”

Jon is quick to praise the level of work the team put into gaining the accreditation, but singled out Victoria Gees-Thornton, Deceuninck Systems Support Manager. “Victoria has worked tirelessly on compiling the data needed to achieve the accreditation and put together a compelling portfolio of evidence for the assessors.”

Jon concluded, “We are extremely proud of our accreditation. The challenge now will be to sustain and improve our practices ensuring the success of the past year remains long into the future.”
