CK Group achieves ISO 14001

Following on from its recent Safe Contractor accreditation for achieving a high standard in health and safety services, CK Group has now also been awarded ISO 14001 for its environmental management system. ISO 14001 demonstrates the group’s awareness of, and commitment to, the successful management of the impact of its operations upon the environment.

In order to meet the demands of the standard, CK Group had to demonstrate that it is: actively reducing pollution by recycling waste (thereby minimising transfer to landfill); monitoring and acting to reduce emissions to the environment; improving energy efficiency and reducing the use of natural resources; as well as delivering awareness training to all of its operatives. CK Group also had to demonstrate that as its business grows, it does so on the basis of achieving continual environmental impact improvement.

Ian Pether, managing director of CK Group, said: “It is testament to the continued hard work, training and development of everyone at CK Group which led to achievement of this certification. Not only has it helped us improve our internal environmental awareness, it clearly demonstrates to our clients our commitment to a sustainable environment."
CK Group has long advocated a reduced environmental impact within the provision of its services - the promotion of microfibre, steam cleaning, and ultrasonics decontamination to reduce chemical use for example.
