ISO 14001 – Why is it so Important?

The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) explains what their accreditation means

‘’ISO International Standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. For business, they are strategic tools that reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors and increasing productivity. They help companies to access new markets, level the playing field for developing countries and facilitate free and fair global trade.’’

Of course that’s all very impressive but what does it mean for your business?

Well to start with not every company can achieve accreditation, the process requires a level of commitment and quality management that challenge even the best run organisations. Once granted ISO status it is incumbent upon successful companies to maintain these standards and that is why you can trust Seaborne to continue setting the pace of development in our industry.

Other advantages of the ISO 14001 accreditation include

  • Guaranteed sustainable development
  • Better environmental management reducing waste and energy use
  • Improved efficiency to cut the cost of running your business
  • Demonstrable compliance
  • Meeting legal obligations for greater stakeholder & customer trust
  • Preparation for the changing business landscape

In short, ISO accreditation matters because it gives you the confidence to know that Seaborne Plastics take their business seriously so that they can treat your business with the respect it deserves.
