TCH Leasing has passed the latest ISO 14001 audit with flying colours.
ISO 14001 is a voluntary system that sets out and assesses certifiable environmental management systems. The objective is to address the delicate balance between maintaining profitability and reducing environmental impact, implementing business processes that engage the whole organisation and demonstrate a commitment to environmental protection from the top down.
The audit took place during December 2021 and included a Covid-safe, physical site review in addition to a series of remote checks and reviews of our processes and procedures.
The report highlighted no ‘non-conformance’ issues, showing high quality, environmentally focused processes throughout. No action or changes have been stipulated or required as a result of the visit, re-certification to the standard has been granted for three years, and there is no follow-up until the next continuous assessment visit, which has been scheduled for December 2022.
Mark Hammond, TCH Leasing Managing Director, commented:
“It is incredibly important that businesses take hold of their environmental impact as a whole, continuing our ISO certification ensures our team focuses on what we can do at a granular level to help address our larger carbon impact. We are seeing a steady shift in the fleets we manage, wanting to be able to reduce their carbon footprint and move to EV powered vehicles. This shift will not slow and so it is important that we, as a company, lead the way to show our customers how positive environmental changes can contribute to business success”
Jennifer Jones, Systems Manager, added:
“To gain re-certification with no non-conformances in what has been such a challenging year is a fantastic achievement for us. Environmental impact has always been at the forefront of our business and now, more than ever, there is a conscious effort to help our customers to reduce their fleets’ emissions as well as advising them on the wider environmental changes they can implement straight away to help make a positive contribution.”
