Energy Services secure ISO accreditation for Travis Perkins


ISO accreditation for Travis Perkins

Our energy assessor Katie Greenhalgh recently undertook consultancy work for the Travis Perkins Group at their headquarters in Northampton to conduct their annual ISO:14001 assessment. To maintain the ISO accreditation a yearly internal audit needs to be undertaken by the organisation which is then verified by an ISO Assessor. This internal audit is an intensive specialist process and Travis Perkins commissioned Energy Services to undertake the internal audit for them, as they didn’t have the resources in house to do this.

Katie undertook a comprehensive evaluation of the environmental management system, interviewed employees, examined records, observed working practices and determined how compliant processes are with the standard and the business’s own environmental objectives. A report was then written which outlined the organisations performance and suggestions for future improvements.

A growing number of companies are going for ISO14001 accreditation many of these are SMEs who will require external resource to help them through the specialist process. Our team of energy assessors are able to help such companies through this complex accreditation.

"We used Nottingham City Council to conduct an audit of our ISO14001 environmental management system (EMS) to ensure our policies and procedures were effective across our organisation. The service provided was very professional, well organised and has helped identify aspects of our EMS that we will strengthen to build on our current performance"
