ETL gains ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Accreditation

ISO 14001: 2015 Certified

ETL Systems are pleased to announce that they have been accredited with the ISO 14001:2015 certification for environmental performance; adding to their green credentials.

To gain ISO 14001:2015 ETL Systems set up a fully integrated and pro-active Environmental Management System (EMS) which helps to reduce their carbon footprint.



- As part of ETL's EMS the following steps were put in place:

- An environmental policy that reflects ETL’s commitments to the environment, e.g. recycling policy, control of hazardous materials, minimising waste etc.

- An internal EMS coordinator was appointed.

- Identification and definition of how ETL  interacts with the environment.

- Identification of environmental compliance requirements and steps to comply to these.

- Environmental objectives, targets and programs were put in place.

- Appointed contractors for recycling waste at both sites; Watford and Hereford.

- Continuously monitoring and regularly reviewing the system and environmental performance.


WHAT IS ISO 14001:2015?

ISO 14001:2015 is an international standard which specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organisation can use to enhance its environmental performance.

ISO 14001:2015 helps an organisation achieve the intended outcomes of its environmental management system, which provide value for the environment, the organisation itself and interested parties.
