Burnt Tree passes environmental audits with flying colours

Burnt Tree has passed its recertification to the ISO 14001 Environmental standard.

As a part of its continual improvement strategy, Burnt Tree said it had reduced general waste produced by 32%, achieved a hazardous waste recycling per cent of 93.4%, which is as practicable as it can get to zero landfill for hazardous waste.

Water consumption has also been reduced by 21.4%.

Charlie Bailey, group procurement manager, said: “By looking at new technology and working with both body shop employees and suppliers, we have managed to significantly reduce the VOC emissions from our body shop operation by 37.4% bringing us below the permit/licensing threshold.”

Richard Metcalfe, CEO, added: “Achieving high results gives our clients the assurance that as a team we deliver excellence.

"We also want to continually improve our services and expertise and audits help us to identify areas where there is still room to grow and excel.”
