What is ISO9001?

Once you are ISO 9001 certified, your company will operate with industry best practices. This means issues are identified and recorded early giving you the information you need to make these issues opportunities for continual improvement. There are seven key benefits that ISO 9001 will bring to your business:

What is ISO14001?

The ISO 14001 is an international standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to enable an organisation of any type or size to develop and implement a policy to manage the primary environmental issues through awareness and assessment of applicable legal requirements, objectives for improvement, assignment of responsibilities, competent personnel, communications, procedures, controls and monitoring, emergency response capability, self-correction and assessment, and internal reviews. These processes are based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.

    
 


Environmental

It is important to us to ensure we are taking steps to reduce the environmental impact. To prove our commitment as responsible corporate citizens. We have achieved compliance to the most internationally recognized environmental standard, ISO 14001.

We are committed to managing our impact on the environment, through continual environmental improvement and pollution prevention and compliance to legal environmental legislation and regular compliance audits.

Ensuring we are doing everything we can to protect the environment is something we take seriously, and compliance to the internationally recognized environmental standard, ISO 14001, is part of this. We encourage and stress to our trusted sources throughout the world to continuously seek and employ strict recycling policies.

You can easily do your part for the environment too, you can:

• Use a lower temperature wash which uses less energy
• Wash garments regularly - don’t wait until the garments are filthy as washing a filthy garment requires more energy to clean
• Use eco-friendly detergents
• Discard the garment appropriately when it is worn out, not with other industrial/construction waste
