, Europe's leading provider of electronic fire and security solutions, announced that it is the first NSI (National Security Inspectorate)
NACOSS Gold Company in the UK to be certified by the NSI with the internationally recognised ISO 14001 Environmental Management System standard.
Following formal third-party assessments during a week of auditing, ADT has achieved recognition for its commitment to implementing processes which minimise the impact of its operations on the environment.
ADT has been using an Environmental Management System written around the ISO-14001 standard for many years. This system focuses on the processes behind energy and waste management, environmental legislation (WEEE Directive and Battery and Accumulator Directive) and environmental best practice. The system was tested in ADT's offices in Leeds and Bristol and following successful audits in those branches, the decision was made to undertake a full review of procedures and engage in full external auditing of the rest of ADT's UK operations.
ISO 14001 represents the core standard used by businesses across the globe for designing and implementing an effective environmental management system. The main objective of ISO 14001 is to provide useful and usable tools for gathering, interpreting and communicating environmentally relevant information, enabling ADT to promote efficient greener business processes within the organisation."Being the first NSI Systems company in the UK to achieve the ISO 14001 standard is a fantastic recognition of the strides ADT has made in ensuring we minimise the impact that our everyday business has on the planet,"
said John Barnacle-Bowd, Head of Quality Assurance and Environment, Health & Safety, ADT. "We take our environmental responsibility extremely seriously and regularly review our processes to make sure we are operating to the required standards, in terms of energy use, waste and recycling practices and efficient vehicle fuel use."
