Albany Cleaning Solutions cares about our impact on the world, so we were delighted to have been awarded ISO 14001 accreditation. ISO 14001 accreditation shows that businesses are environmentally friendly, are managing their compliance obligations and working to reduce waste wherever possible.
“ISO 14011 helps an organisation achieve the intended outcomes of its environmental management system, which provide value for the environment, the organisation itself and interested parties. Consistent with the organisation’s environmental policy, the intended outcomes of an environmental management system include:
- Enhancement of environmental performance
- Fulfilment of compliance obligations
- Achievement of environmental objectives” [source]
So, what does this mean for our clients?
Our ISO 14001 Accreditation shows we are committed to using environmentally friendly cleaning products wherever possible. Our certification journey began when we recognised that using toxic cleaning products was an area in which we could improve. It became one of our key objectives in working towards ISO 14001 accreditation. We tested many cleaning products to find those that would meet our high standards. We have found an excellent selection of environmentally friendly products that still deliver the hard-hitting cleaning power that our customers have come to expect from us.
ISO 14001 accreditation also means we’re committed to recycling everything we can to reduce our environmental impact. We have a strict recycling programme that ensures we recycle everything that can be and properly dispose of, or, wherever possible, reuse anything that can’t be. This is part of our waste management programme and is an area we continually monitor and make positive changes to.
This accreditation also shows that we have careful processes to manage any environmental risks associated with our work. We regularly check our procedures, and if any improvements are required, we make them immediately.
For our clients who are also ISO 14001 accredited, choosing to work with a professional cleaning company that is certified to the same levels shows their commitment to ISO 14001 and that they do their utmost to reduce their environmental impact. This commitment can be a positive signal for stakeholders, increasing trust and respect for the brand or organisation.
