To show that P1 Investment Management Ltd is committed to meeting the standards required for the best practice in Environmental Management, the company voluntarily applied for ISO 14001; submitting ourselves to external auditing of our management system. Through hard work from the P1 team, on 6th November 2017 P1 was formally awarded the ISO 14001 certification. This certification demonstrates that you can have confidence that we act in an environmentally responsible way.
As a continued commitment to the standard, P1 will submit itself to voluntary external audits on an annual basis to monitor and progress our commitment to environmental responsibility at the heart of our company.
ISO 14001: is part of 14000 family of standards related to environmental management, providing practical tools for companies looking to manage their environments responsibly. 14001 defines a criteria and focuses on the application of an Environmental Management System (EMS) to support achieve this. The standard is international recognised with over 300,000 certifications in 170 countries. As a management system, it does not state the requirements for environmental performance, but maps out a framework for a company to follow. The company sets their own targets and performance measures, and the standard highlights what an organization needs to do to meet these goals, and to monitor and measure the situation. It is used by an organisation wanting to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste and additionally reduce costs. Key areas it covers are:
(a) minimize how our operations negatively affect the environment,
(b) comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements,
(c) continually improve on the above.
ISO 14001 can also be integrated with other management functions and assists companies in meeting their environmental and economic goals. It is based on the well known Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle of management.
