Green-tech, the hard and soft landscaping material supplier, has announced that it has achieved the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditation certification, the latest and most comprehensive quality and environmental standard, for the eighth successive year.
ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are amongst ISO’s most well-known standards. They are implemented by more than a million organisations in over 170 countries.
Green-tech has demonstrated its commitment to continuous improvement for both standards. This independent assessment was conducted by the British Assessment Bureau, a leading certification body, and demonstrates Green-tech’s commitment to ISO 9001: customer service and quality in delivery and ISO 14001: environmental impact.
ISO 9001 requires organisations to demonstrate that they do what they say they do, and that they have a Quality Management System in place to ensure consistency and improvement.
ISO 14001 requires organisations to have an environmental policy and action plan in place to manage their impact on the environment. Green-tech successfully demonstrated its environmental credentials and met the rigorous testing procedures to “give their stakeholders reassurances that they take their corporate responsibilities seriously”.
Rachel Kay, Green-tech’s managing director said: “We are delighted to have achieved ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001: 2015 certification. “It underlines our commitment to our customers and our focus on quality and the environment. Not many customers get to see their suppliers’ ‘back office’ activities.
“This recognition demonstrates we can provide a quality solution from quotation through to delivery. We work within the ISO framework to help us to deliver consistently high levels of performance and customer satisfaction.
“To be one of the first companies in our industry to be assessed against the 2015 criteria is even more significant for us; so, this is great news. I’m really pleased.”
