Boningale Nurseries is proud of its environmental credentials and continues to push the boundaries with new and innovative ways to improve environmental efficiencies across all areas of the business.
This ethical approach to environmental sustainability was verified again recently with Boningale successfully passing its annual environmental audit; an external audit that covers every process in the business from waste management to office recycling and energy efficiency to ensure conformity to the ISO 14001 standard.
During the inspection this year, the IS0 14001 auditor commented that Boningale continues to operate an effective Environmental Management System, which is clearly well managed and controlled with staff taking the environment and its protection very seriously
Particular note was also given to Boningale’s extensive trialing of biological pest controls, its bio-beds to capture chemical runoff, and peat-free propagation and potting trials.
The auditor said that all these environmental nursery trials along with increased supply chain scrutiny and efficient haulage initiatives are just a handful of the measures Boningale has taken to go above and beyond the required performance for ISO 14001.
Boningale Nurseries is on the UK’s largest nurseries and supplies both traditional nursery and green roof planting stock from its 44-acre site in Albrighton.
