Go Green, Go Galvin Engineering
Galvin Engineering recently received final approval and certification to ISO 14001
Being certified to ISO 14001 ends a two year project that involved the resources and co-operation of the entire company, along with four separate audits over a five month period. We are immensely proud of this achievement as has been an intensive period of:
> Rolling the system out to all staff and bringing a fundamental change across all aspects of the business;
> Updating all current systems to include ISO 14001 clauses; and
> Development new registers and increasing our level of monitoring and reporting
The environmental systems functions like the quality management system and both hinge on continuous improvement.
Being ISO 14001 certified compels us to focus on the environmental impact of the business and it is designed to give us tools to measure how effectively we are managing that impact.
While it's great we are now certified, the hard work for our Green Team and for the entire company is only just beginning! We now have procedures and measures in place so we can monitor how well we are doing.
Plus we are going to be audited each year to ensure we are making positive changes which reduce our ongoing environmental impact.
It is fair to say that only around 5% of comparable companies in Australia, in terms of size and nature of business, would have this certification. Be Green, Be Galvin Engineering!!!
