Ongo achieves ISO 14001
We have achieved the internationally recognised ISO 14001 standard for our approach to managing our effects on the environment.
The standard is presented by the British Safety Council and we are one of the very first companies in the UK to be awarded certification to the new 2015 standard.
The standard focuses specifically on how organisations perform in terms of their efficient use of resources and reducing their amount of waste. It measures where we performed on a strategic, managerial and operational level with regards to how we manage our effects on the environment.
We received high scores of 96% in the combined 14001 and 5 star audit carried out by the British Safety Council and scored the maximum five out of five stars in the rating given.
Andy Orrey, Ongo Chief Executive, said: “This score is fantastic, and to receive the ISO 14001 standard is a great achievement.
“It highlights our commitment to supporting the local community and the wider environment by ensuring we’re working to these high standards.
“Ongo was praised for its approach to meeting this standard and in particular our engagement with stakeholders. The amount of services we provide for tenants and the way we manage our systems in an integrated way were considered strong.”
