Burnt Tree Pass Audits With Flying Colours
03 October 2011
Burnt Tree has sailed through its recertification to the ISO 14001 Environmental Standard.
An audit by SGS assessed the company’s environmental management standard ISO 14001 and Burnt Tree passed with flying colours with extremely positive feedback from the auditor.
As a part of our continual improvement strategy we have reduced general waste produced by 32%, achieved a hazardous waste recycling level of 93.4% - which according to SGS is as practicable as we can get to zero landfill for hazardous waste - and we've also reduced water consumption by 21.4%.
Charlie Bailey, Group Procurement Manager, said: ‘By looking at new technology and working with both body shop employees and suppliers, we have managed to significantly reduce the VOC emissions from our body shop operation by 37.4% bringing us below the permit/licensing threshold.’
Richard Metcalfe, CEO added: ‘Achieving high results gives our clients the assurance that as a team we deliver excellence. We also want to continually improve our services and expertise and audits help us to identify areas where there is still room to grow and excel.’
