Arcese UK maintains their commitment to sustainability, thanks to a better resources management plan and the reduction of waste.
Arcese branch in Tilbury renewed its ISO 14001:2015 standard, establishing it as one of the leaders in its field. This independent assessment was conducted by the British Assessment Bureau, a leading Certification Body last January, and demonstrates Arcese Group commitment to sustainability and their environmental impact.
ISO 14001 was first introduced in 1996 as a British Standard and requires organisations to have an environmental policy and action plan in place to manage their impact on the environment. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.
Arcese has shown they have good service reliability and process controls, which means clear understanding of the customer's expected quality. Steve Day, Operations Manager of Arcese said “We are pleased to announce the renewal of our ISO14001: 2015 certification. This recognition declares that the environment is a top priority in all our actions and demonstrates we can provide environmentally friendly solutions for our clients”. And add “A key change in the renewed standard is a greater commitment from leadership therefore we aim to drive this through the business from top management to line managers and all employees with a major focus on waste management and reducing our carbon footprint during 2018”.
The benefits of showing conformance to the ISO 14001 standard are numerous and include: achieve operational excellence, demonstrate environmental credentials, reduce costs and wastage just to name some. At the end of 2017 Arcese UK obtained also FORS Bronze accreditation and during 2018 company focus will be to manage ISO14001 to the highest standard within their business through proactive communication and to achieve FORS Silver and ISO 9001 quality management system certification by the end of 2018.
Arcese UK has over 13 years’ experience within the logistics and transport sector and has grown steadily from its formation in 2005. Since then, Arcese UK has been operating at the highest standards possible and with optimum efficiency showing full commitment and professionalism to customer and employees.
THE BRITISH ASSESSMENT BUREAU
The British Assessment Bureau’s reputation was established in 1969 as a specialist in certification scheme management. In 1997, the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry approved the use of the word ‘British’ in their title, in recognition of their pre-eminent status.
Today, they certify organisations to recognised standards, including ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management), ISO 27001 (information security management) and OHSAS 18001 (occupational health and safety management). They also design and manage bespoke assessment schemes. Such schemes are based on the establishment of standards, which can be developed to be recognised company-wide, industry-wide, nationally, or internationally.
