Carbon Gold achieves ISO:14001, international standard in environmental management.
As a world-leading manufacturer of biochar-based soil improvers, we are proud to announce that Carbon Gold has been certified for an internationally recognised standard ISO14001 for environmental management systems. This certification demonstrates our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment and promoting sustainable practices.
ISO 14001 is a widely recognised standard that sets out the requirements for effective environmental management and improving the environmental objectives of the company. It helps organisations like us to control our environmental impact and improve our environmental performance and improve resource efficiency. The standard is designed to be used by organisations of all sizes and types, in any sector to take on environmental challenges head on and have continual improvement in environmental responsibilities.
Why did Carbon Gold apply for ISO 14001 environmental management?
By obtaining this environmental certification, we are able to show our customers and external stakeholders that we are committed to social responsibility, environmental sustainability and climate change. The certification process is rigorous, and it involves a thorough assessment of our environmental management system. It also requires regular audits to ensure that we continue to meet the standard’s requirements, and to ensure legal compliance through management review and internal audits.
In terms of specific implementation, Carbon Gold has implemented a number of sustainable practices in its operations. We source our raw materials from sustainable and renewable sources, and use energy-efficient processes in our manufacturing. We also have a recycling program in place for their waste materials and have a systematic approach to identify and assess environmental impacts of the company, and have a plan to mitigate those impacts. This does not mean that we stop here, and will continue to look at ways of improved resource efficiency and also improving environmental performance.
Additionally, Carbon Gold also has a robust system to document and record all the environmental-related activities and also regularly reviews the system to ensure its effectiveness and to identify areas for improvement. Carbon Gold also communicates its environmental policy and performance to all stakeholders.
In order to be certified for ISO 14001, we have demonstrated that we have a robust and effective environmental management system in place that meets the standard’s requirements. This involves completing a self-assessment, followed by a formal certification audit. The certification audit is conducted by independent third-party auditor, QMS who has assessed the organisation’s environmental management system against the standard’s requirements.
Carbon Gold has implemented ISO 14001 by incorporating the standard’s requirements into its policies, procedures, and practices. This includes implementing procedures for identifying and controlling its environmental impact, setting targets and objectives to improve its environmental performance, and regularly monitoring and reviewing its environmental performance.
The environmental protection of our supply chain
Our supply chain of our materials form one of the largest parts of our environmental management. The benefits of the management system is to ensure that our legal obligations and compliance are monitored through our management system, while ensuring that our environmental impacts are kept to a minimum. We source our raw materials from sustainable and renewable sources, and we use energy-efficient processes in our manufacturing. We also have a recycling program in place for our waste materials, and we are constantly looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact through a flexible approach but while ensuring compliance obligations.
Our products, which are made from biochar, a type of charcoal that is produced from sustainable sources, are designed to improve soil health and fertility. Biochar is made by heating organic matter in the absence of oxygen, a process known as pyrolysis. This process not only produces biochar, but also generates heat and bio-oil, which is used as a source of energy.
In conclusion, ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised standard for environmental management systems that helps organisations like Carbon Gold to control their environmental impact and improve their environmental performance. Carbon Gold has implemented the standard by incorporating its requirements into its policies, procedures, and practices, and by implementing sustainable practices in its operations. Obtaining ISO 14001 certification is a significant achievement for Carbon Gold as it demonstrates our ongoing commitment to reducing their impact on the environment and promoting sustainable practices.
