Polestar Now ISO 14001 Certified

Monday, February 23, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Polestar Chantry has added ISO 14001 to its list of environmental accreditations, which includes FSC and PEFC status.

Managing Director Jim Algar says: "We believe in adopting robust and sustainable environmental policies and procedures as our customers are increasingly requesting information and confirmation of our environmental management status during contractual negotiations and awards. Our achievement of ISO 14001 is a clear demonstration of the company's commitment and a willingness to incorporate these standards within our day-to-day operations for the benefit of the site and its immediate environment."

He continues: "We will of course continue in our drive to improve environmental processes and enhance our profile to support the wider Polestar group and print sector as a whole."

Polestar Chantry has achieved ISO 14001 within a tight time frame. Having established many internal processes in advance, the company has been able to fast track with a core implementation team and drive the necessary changes and improvements through the business.

ISO 14001 forms part of ISO 14000, a series of voluntary standards and guideline reference documents. 14001 covers Environmental Management compliance and control, including tasks such as monitoring and measurement, operational control, emergency procedures, environmental records, correct waste management, communications and training.
