Global supplier of refurbished and remanufactured telecom equipment, MF Communications has achieved the ISO 14001 certificate for its environmental management system. This internationally recognised standard acknowledges that the business meets high environmental standards in the way it is run.
Accredited on March 9, 2010, MF Communications had to undergo a stringent, eight month process, audited by the British Standards Institute (BSI). This included setting and working to environmental targets, implementing correct legal practices to comply with environmental law and training staff in best eco working approaches.
During the process MF Communications worked towards reducing waste, carbon and energy consumption and found more efficient ways of conducting trade. The company now aims to produce less than one per cent of the waste previously destined for land fill. An office refurbishment saw the installation of various energy saving solutions, including lighting, heating and insulation. Solar power was installed at a partner’s home office.
“Recycling is at the very core of what MF Communications does”, said Terry Brady, BSI associate consultant. “The ISO 14001 accreditation recognises the high standards the company sets itself.”
Matt Emmins, managing partner of MF Communications said: “Our business is all about reducing the impact that organisations have on the environment. Gaining this certification reinforces that our green approach runs through everything we do, from lighting our offices to providing high quality refurbished equipment to our customers.”
