We are proud to announce that we are implementing an environmental management system (EMS) in order that we can understand, influence and reduce the environmental impact of our business activities.
Part of the implementation plan is to communicate our environmental intentions and policy to our customers, suppliers and interested parties - please check out our policy.
All our people are aware of the need to reduce our environmental impact and significance while remaining a profitable company. We have put in place a series of company objectives which we’d be happy to share if you contact us. We will of course be updating this site on a regular basis as our progress develops.
Another win for Cooler Recycling Solutions Ltd - now ISO 14001 certified!
The Company achieved yet another milestone on 17 February in our efforts to champion the cause of the environment and add to the success of industry in this part of Northumberland. Director Mike Storey said 'We are absolutely delighted to receive the award of ISO 14001 status. It's the top accreditation for environmental awareness in business and everyone in the Company has played their part in our success. Many organisations set up what they call a 'Green Team' to champion improvements, but we decided very soon after making our original plans that we wanted each and every member of staff to feel that they were involved. That was about 18 months ago and it couldn't have been a more successful decision.' Some of the improvements CRS have made during this time have included: reducing our waste going to landfill by two-thirds, making sure that whenever possible materials and equipment are returned to use or recycled, and reducing our use of printer ink and paper. We also measure our carbon footprint every month to make sure we are always heading in the right direction. Mike says, 'Without sustainable, healthy communities, we know we won't - long-term - have a healthy, sustainable business.'
