Autoglass has announced that it has achieved renewal of its ISO 14001 certification for its efforts on sustainability, recycling and lowering carbon emissions across the business.
To meet this certification, Autoglass has taken steps to further improve its environmental policy and plans so that it is better equipped to handle wastage and ensure compliance.
New schemes and initiatives rolled out in the business have in turn educated the employees to become more aware of the environment and set the company on track to meet ambitious targets on reducing its carbon footprint by 2015.
Autoglass announced it was working to reduce C02 emissions per job by 15% through the introduction of new technologies, training, and processes in its mobile service and transportation of glass.
Furthermore, it is set to reduce branch energy consumption in refurbished branches by 23% through a partnership with Guardian Project Services. The company is also confident that it will reduce the amount of waste going to landfill by 50% against 2007 levels.
Managing director Matthew Mycock said the renewal of the ISO 14001 certification is evidence of how Autoglass has maintained its focus and commitment to sustainability and demonstrates the company’s efforts to improve its environmental performance across the organisation.
He added: “At Autoglass we don’t see recycling and sustainability as an optional extra. It’s fundamental across all aspects of our business, such as our offices, mobile workforce, supply depots and installation centres. With our renewed certifications announced today, I feel confident our ambitious targets for 2015 will be achieved.”
