Clyde Bergemann Power Group’s UK subsidiaries accredited with Environmental Management System –
Doncaster/UK, August 2010
In August 2010, Clyde Bergemann Power Group’s UK subsidiaries (CBUK) based in Doncaster and Glasgow received the accreditation for ISO 14001:2004 in relation to their operations focussed on mechanical and pneumatic material handling systems, air pollution control systems and on-load cleaning technology ‘sootblowers’.
The ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard which applies to the implementation of an effective Environmental Management System (EMS) of a company. The commitment of the organisation involved in this system will help to achieve a balance between profitability and environmental impact of the business.
Environmental accreditation is a growing pre-requisite in the global business environment, and mandatory under the investment rules of financial institutions. Global organisations such as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), utilities and government funded investments view environmental accreditation second only to quality accreditation. Having been awarded ISO 14001, the CBUK organisations are well positioned to further strengthen their corporate identity and maximise involvement in these investment opportunities.
The CBUK teams of Clyde Bergemann Materials Handling Ltd, Doncaster (materials handling and air pollution control) and Clyde Bergemann Ltd, Glasgow (on-load cleaning) have, and will continue to, ensure best practices within the business in accordance with the EMS. Their efforts in achieving this accreditation have been recognised and appreciated by all involved.
Jeff Hudson comments: Although managing our businesses in accordance with good environmental practices, early in 2010 we recognised the increasing need to demonstrate our standards by seeking official endorsement. We see the achievement of this accreditation as a demonstration of our commitment to the environment whilst providing our customers with quality solutions supporting energy efficiency increases and emissions reduction”.
