Napier Turbochargers, Environmental Management System has recently achieved accreditation to ISO 14001:2004.
The initial commitment to achieving accreditation was made in February 2015 and after an extensive project, culminating in an audit undertaken by BSI, the application was approved and accreditation was achieved.
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system.
It helps improve environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.
An environmental management system helps organisations control their environmental issues in a holistic manner. It also includes the need for continual improvement of an organisation’s systems and approach to environmental concerns.
Ewen Hamilton, Head of Sales and Marketing, Napier Turbochargers, commented: “We are delighted to announce that Napier Turbochargers Ltd, as part of Wabtec UK Holdings, has achieved ISO14001 certification awarded by BSI. This is recognition that Napier has an effective environmental management system in place in order to address our environmental responsibilities and impacts whilst at the same time striving to meet and exceed stakeholder expectations in terms of sustainable growth and corporate social responsibility.”
