Lawn Master achieve second ISO accreditation
22nd Sep 2016
We are proud to announce that we have recently become the first national lawn care company in the UK to be accredited with ISO 14001 certification. This comes six years after being the first lawn care company to be awarded with the ISO 9001 accreditation in 2010.
ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised standard for the environmental management of businesses. The achievement of this standard demonstrates our efforts as a business to reduce our impact on the environment as much as possible.
We undertook the ISO 9001 standard back in 2009 because Lawn Master’s whole business model is based on our quality and attention to detail, while also providing technically superior service due to the background of our franchisees. But the purpose of us undertaking the 14001 certification was to ensure that all of our customers, suppliers and of course, new potential customers are fully aware of our responsible attitude towards the environment. Of course, as a company who applies professional products and chemicals, the standard re-assures what everyone expects of us.
In order for us to meet the requirements of the new standard, we had to complete vigorous environmental assessments across the whole company and carefully assess and reduce any impact that all of our operations have.
You can view our environmental policy to see all of the measures we have in place to continually improve our environmental performance.
Anyone can also view our quality management policy for ISO 9001, which explains all of the principles associated with the management of our business.
With regards to meeting the criteria of the 14001 certification, having documentation and logs of any environmental factors and changes in legislation has been of paramount importance. The new standard is a tool which supports continual improvement in how Lawn Master operates and stays up to date with all environmental issues and legislation. We also feel that it gives us a competitive advantage as customers can be assured that they are using the services of a company who comply with all environmental requirements and laws.
