ISO 14001

Environmental Management Standard

This was the first environmental certification we received. The highly recognised standard specifies a process for the control and the continuous improvement of an organisation’s environmental performance.

ISO 14001 is an international standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) through dedicated technical committees representing approximately 150 countries around the world. Its purpose is to enable an organization of any type or size to develop and implement a policy committing it to prevention of pollution, compliance with legal and other requirements, and continual improvement.

The realization of this commitment will be a management system that recognizes and manages the primary environmental issues through awareness and assessment of applicable legal requirements, objectives for improvement, assignment of responsibilities, competent personnel, communications, procedures, controls and monitoring, emergency response capability, self correction and assessment, and internal reviews. These processes are to be based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.

AFS

Australian Forestry Standard Chain Of Custody Certification

We have an AFS Chain Of Custody Certification. As we are a manufacturer of timber based products this was a necessary move. This provides our customers with an assurance that the wood or timber based product specified for a fit out has been sourced from a sustainably managed forest and tracked through the supply chain to ensure it ‘maintains an unbroken chain of custody’ (as per the requirements of the  certification).

There is an annual audit done to retain certification so we are committed in the long run to ensure that we act responsibly with where we source our material and how this is treated throughout the supply chain.
