    Sunsquare celebrates
    ISO 14001 accreditation

    arrow Back to news 2nd August 2016

    Sunsquare’s long-standing commitment to minimising its impact on the wider environment has been acknowledged by the British Standards Institution (BSI), who has recently accredited the UK’s leading flat roof skylight manufacturers with ISO 14001 Environmental Management (EMS).

    ISO 14001:2015 was the world’s first global environmental management standard, developed to cater for today’s complex marketplace and businesses with sustainability at the core of their operations.

     

    Businesses accredited for ISO 14001 demonstrate better environmental management with reduced waste and energy use and improved efficiency that cuts the cost of day-to-day operations.

     

    Gary Hearn, systems and quality manager, Sunsquare, said: “The success of a management system relies upon the engagement of everyone involved and understanding how the business interacts with customers, suppliers, neighbours, staff and the industry.

    “There are two ISO standards an organisation can aspire to as evidence of that success: ISO 9001 for quality and ISO 14001 for environmental management.

    “Sunsquare is among the first to adopt and gain certification for both newly revised standards where the bar has been raised higher – with an assessment by the world’s foremost standards body: BSI.”

     

    Gary adds that while the business has been blazing a trail for industry-leading design and performance in the UK rooflight industry, Sunsquare is now able to demonstrate its success in minimising waste from manufacture processes.

    “Since 2015, the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards have moved closer together in approach which means the focus of the business can safely continue to add value while removing waste from processes,” said Hearn.

    “The assessments were done within days of each other across every aspect of the organisation involving staff at all levels and fully traceable records covering several years.

    “Sunsquare has been on this journey for some time, the certifications show the outside world what has been done so far and mark a determination to improve further still.”

     

    The accreditation also serves to further strengthen Sunsquare’s relationship with BSI after initially setting a new benchmark for product performance and safety by becoming the world’s first flat roof window manufacturer to obtain the BSI Kitemark for a rooflight.
