21 Aug Our Commitment to Environmental Management
With climate change high on the agenda and effects increasingly felt across business, regulation and operations, the organisational control of environmental risks and impacts have never been so important. That’s why at Aqua we believe environmental management and business sustainability is not only important, but absolutely critical. An Environmental Management System (EMS) is much more than achieving compliance – it encapsulates a company’s ethos and objectives in achieving higher environmental standards. This is demonstrated by the internationally recognised ISO 14001:2015 standard and advocated by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA).
Our Graduate Scientist, Naresh Patel has recently completed the IEMA Foundation Certificate in Environmental Management. This certificate provides a thorough and recognised grounding in the principles underlying in environmental management and EMSs. The areas covered in this certificate include global environmental and socio-economic trends and impacts on sustainable governance; major policies and principles and the key tools and practices to establish, monitor and progress environmental best practice.
The benefits are extensive from improved internal processes leading to business savings to an increased scope and holistic services for clients. Aqua is proud to demonstrate to industry colleagues the commitment we show to effective environmental management.
