In addition to the ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard, Ritec has been ISO 14001 certified for 5 years already.
ISO 14001 sets out and certifies the criteria for an environmental management system. It maps out a framework that a company or organisation must follow to set up an effective environmental management system. ISO 14001:2015 is the standard’s latest update.
Using ISO 14001:2015 provides assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved.
Stephen Byers, MD, says: ‘Ritec has long been committed to the environment through its promotion of the ClearShield Eco-System™. Implementing special procedures as part of our operations management system is a very natural continuation to this commitment’.
The ClearShield® durable glass surface protection reduces by 50% on average the frequency of site visits for routine cleaning of glass in buildings, substantially cutting carbon dioxide emissions and costs for:
- operation and maintenance of vehicles and access equipment,
- consumption of energy, water, cleaning chemicals and other materials.
