Here at Datesand we’ve always taken pride in our green credentials. We’ve had a comprehensive and robust Environmental Policy for many years now and have made important investments in our new headquarters into our new solar panels, motion sensor lighting system waste recycling arrangements and budding carbon neutral programme.
With all of this in mind, we’re excited and not a little proud to announce that Datesand has this month been certified to the internationally recognised IS0 14001 Environmental Management Standard.
After almost two years of highly focussed efforts by members of the team and despite the very challenging circumstances faced by everyone over the last months, Datesand now has an accredited Environmental Management System, audited and certified by a specialist accreditation body to the international (ISO) standard. Everything we do as a company, how we do it and how we work to improve our environmental performance year on year has been deemed to meet the exacting standards of the International Organisation for Standardisation.
The understanding of and control over our actual environmental impact as a company which this entails will greatly assist us also in our journey towards Carbon Neutral status. We embarked earlier this year on an ambitious programme to achieve Carbon Neutral this side of 2025. Challenging though this sounds, we’re confident and determined to get there and our new 14001 Management System will surely help us on our way.
Our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System will form a key part, along with our long established ISO 9001 Quality Management System, of who we are as a business and how we aim to work with our clients, suppliers and other key stakeholders now and as the world moves towards its greener, safer and more ethical future.
