ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, has been awarded ISO 14001 accreditation at its Lisburn manufacturing plant in Northern Ireland.
ISO 14001 is a framework for environmental management Best Practice designed to support organisations in minimising pollution, reducing their environmental footprint, conforming to legislation and developing their business in a sustainable manner.
Stephen Crymble, Health and Safety environmental manager of ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, said: “We’re proud that our manufacturing site in Lisburn has been accredited to ISO 14001. The accreditation not only proves our environmental manufacturing credentials, but it also demonstrates our ongoing commitment to improve our performance in the years to come.”
Crymble added: “Clients and end users are becoming more aware of sustainability and the ways in which products are manufactured. This means the industry cannot afford to operate with a ‘business as usual’ mentality. Manufacturers simply must commit to improvements if they’re to compete in what’s becoming a more and more environmentally conscious business environment.”
Third party assessment will continue, while certification to ISO 14001 will be monitored at the manufacturing site to ensure compliance with the standard at all times.
