To be green or not to be
29 May 2012
On 9th May 2012, Brightwell Dispensers was attributed the international certification ISO14001, marking the achievement of an intensive 6-month
project led by Brightwell’s QA team.
ISO14001 is an international accreditation which recognises the company’s corporate policy to integrate environmentally-friendly processes throughout all stages of product development, and across all departments. The certificate is part of an Environmental Management System (EMS) that goes further than national and international environmental policies, encouraging companies to review all their processes to minimise the impact on the environment. It is part of a voluntary scheme, whereby companies set their own challenging targets to improve the way they operate.
Employees were encouraged to participate and give their green ideas. Two members of the production in particular came up with excellent ideas that were taken into account to improve the company’s ecological scheme. Ergonomic designs, low energy machines and the regrinding of excess plastic are now all part of our waste management programme. As a result, Brightwell now holds one of the most prestigious environmental accreditations, recognised on an international level.
