Octavian Gains Environment Performance Accreditation

Octavian Security : 26 January, 2011  (Company News)
Proving that green security services are a possibility, Octavian Security has achieved ISO 14001 accreditation for demonstrating the effectiveness of the company's environmental management system
Octavian Security has been praised for its green credentials after gaining ISO 14001 accreditation.

 

ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised voluntary standard that specifies the process for controlling and improving an organisation's environmental performance. Designed to address the balance between profitability and reducing environmental impact, accreditation is only awarded to companies that demonstrate an effective Environmental Management System (EMS).

 

The journey towards ISO 14001 and the eco positive changes that the company has implemented, have also helped Octavian to win awards, with the company winning Responsible Business Practice and Overall Supplier of the Year awards at the Minority Supplier Development UK (MSDUK) 2010 Awards.

 

Sam Singh, Octavian’s operations director, formerly of BP, commented: “It’s vitally important that businesses across the country engage with and review their internal green policies in order to lessen their impact on the environment, and Octavian is certainly no exception.

 

“Every effort has been made to reduce consumption and waste, and increase levels of recycling. By reducing waste in fuel, paper and other materials consumed by the business in its day to day activities, we are not only saving money for ourselves, but sending out a positive message to the market in times of economic austerity.

 

“The EMS that we now have in place is second to none and not only demonstrates our environmental responsibility and regulatory compliance, but will also help us to grow as a company.”

 

As well as reducing operating costs by decreasing both consumption and waste levels, ISO 14001 accreditation also means that Octavian is now in a position to develop links with potential new customers and business partners.

 

The certification allows the company to qualify for a greater number of tendering processes and achieve preferred supplier status, particularly with Local Authorities or as part of a supply chain requirement.
