Recycling firm reaches international standard

Thursday 26 February 2015

Jersey business AAL Recycling has been awarded an international standard accreditation for its work in developing an environmental management system. The ISO 14001 is issued by Certification Europe, which provides management system certification and standards to organisations globally.

AAL Recycling join a select group of businesses in the Island that are working to this level of environmental excellence. Environmental manager of AAL Recycling, Tim Pedley, said: “This was an opportunity to do things better: by engaging with the programme you also establish a culture of constant improvement. We are now looking at the whole lifecycle of products, and by taking a longer term approach we hope to gain benefits beyond business growth and a lower environmental footprint; we also hope it will make an impact on our bottom line.”

Eco-Active programme manager, Jane Burns, said: “We are delighted that AAL Recycling have been recognised for their efforts and continued improvements. In reaching this standard, they are now a Level 3 Eco-Active Business, which makes it leader in the Island in environmental performance. Reduction in consumption, including the reduction of energy use together with all-round improved efficiencies, reduces costs and makes perfect business sense.”

Eco-Active are working hard to support businesses with environmental improvements that can lead to them becoming increasingly efficient and reducing costs. The lunch and learn sessions are a new initiative being run in conjunction with Jersey Business. The demand for this training has been such that an additional session has already been added with a waiting list for further sessions. Tomorrow’s training seminar will be the first in a series of lunch and learn sessions that will enable businesses to take practical steps to move forward.
