ISO 14001 Accreditation – Supporting Environmental Change

At Universal Smart Cards we are always looking at ways we can reduce our organisation's impact on the environment, whether it’s by introducing greener smart card choices, offering carbon neutral delivery or supporting green initiatives.

Our ISO 14001 certification, attained over 10 years ago, is a key part of this and demonstrates we have environmental management systems in place to comply with stringent environmental laws and regulations.

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is the International Standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS). It was designed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) to help businesses and other organizations to reduce their environmental impact. It has allowed us to set up an EMS that helps us to reduce waste, improve resource efficiency and cut waste management costs. ISO 14001 is one of the most recognized standards in the world.

Our requirements to meet the ISO 14001 standard.

The ISO 14001 standard uses a structure of ten clauses called ‘Annex SL’, which, groups together to cover four key areas:

  • Environmental impact – the processes our business must follow to run a successful Environmental Management System and reduce its environmental impact.
  • Management Responsibility – the areas our management team need to focus on, be involved with and be accountable for.
  • Resource Management – how resources such as people, infrastructure and facilities must be assigned to ensure the best possible performance.
  • Measurement, Analysis and Improvement – how we determine if our Environmental Management System is working as expected, facilitating the continual improvement of our systems.

We have all of the above in place, allowing us to meet the stringent criteria for ISO 14001 certification and demonstrate our commitment to supporting a greener, healthier environment.

The benefits of working with us, an ISO 14001 certified company.

Business faces increasing supply chain pressure for more accountability for their impact on the environment - it’s now more important than ever that we all make greener choices. That’s why we’ve worked hard to achieve this standard, giving our customers piece of mind that they are sourcing from a company that has a robust environmental management system and is committed to reducing their impact on the environment.

It allows you to demonstrate that your organization sources their smart products from an ISO 14001 certified supplier – adding to your eco-friendly credentials by showing your commitment to the environment and support for greener partners.
