Leading Sash Window specialists Masterframe Windows Ltd has further boosted its green credentials by obtaining the BS EN ISO 14001 environmental accreditation.
The ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard recognises a company’s environmental processes and impact.
It forms part of Masterframe’s existing environmental policy and commitment to on-going improvement of its operation’s production efficiency and sustainability.
Masterframe’s production manager Greg Ponds commented “the benefits of pursuing ISO 14001 speak for themselves in terms of reducing energy consumption, waste and ultimately running costs, making better use of resources and raw materials makes both good environment and business sense for all”
The company underwent a comprehensive environmental review of the resources it uses from pollution prevention, waste management and recycling.
As part of the review, Masterframe have invested in a CK International baling machine to ensure none of their recyclable cardboard and polythene packaging waste ends up in landfill.
“We were amazed with the performance of this small machine” commented Greg, “we were able to compact a skip full of our polythene stillage wraps into a small 50kg bale which CK International collect free of charge on a regular basis so in addition to recycling our cardboard and polythene packaging waste we’re also at the same time saving thousands of pounds a year in waste management costs!”
