Netcetera are very proud to announce that it has achieved ISO 14001 certification, the environmental management system standard. The certification is based upon an external validation of the company’s environmental performance with regard to the design, implementation and support of their hosting solutions in its Datacentre and office operations.
The ISO14001 certification maps out a framework for setting up an effective environmental management system for organisations that want to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste and drive down costs. Certification to the standard requires companies to identify and control the environmental impacts of their activities, products and services. ISO14001 also requires companies to continually improve their environmental performance and implement a systematic approach to setting and achieving environmental targets and objective.
We have a commitment to environmental stewardship and accountability, and we have worked very hard to achieve the ISO14001 certification. Our global client base can be assured that we are committed to help drive improvements in their environmental impact and in the technology solutions and services we recommend to them.
“We work in an industry with its own particular energy challenges and as the world increasingly turns to hosted cloud solutions to meet its computing requirements, we have a heightened responsibility to ensure our solutions are architected, built and maintained in an environmentally responsible manner from the start,” said Tim Cass, Netcetera CTO, “Achieving this standard helps to underpin our Global Sustainability Programme and focus the business on achieving our targets and objectives, not just in terms of energy but wherever we have an environmental impact.”
A continuous cycle of planning, implementing, reviewing and improving the processes and actions that are performed to meet business and environmental goals, provide Netcetera’s clients and partners the assurance that environmental impact is being measured and improved.
As a result of implementing this programme, we have developed a set of ambitious plans to lower our carbon emissions, which will be unveiled over the coming months – stay tunes!
