We are pleased to announce that we have passed our annual environmental audit which covers every process in the business from waste management to office recycling and energy efficiency.
The Environmental Management System has been assessed by an external auditor, to ensure our conformity to the ISO 14001 standard.
Our visit this year went well, the auditor commented “Boningale continues to operate an effective Environmental Management System which is clearly well managed and controlled. Boningale demonstrated that a good level of effective improvements have been implemented and is clear that the Boningale staff take the environment and its protection very seriously which is pleasing to see. The extensive trialling of biological pest controls, bio-beds to capture chemical runoff, peat-free propagation and potting trials, increased supply chain scrutiny and efficient haulage initiatives are just a handful of the measures taken to go above and beyond the required performance.”
The Auditor added “operational controls and emergency preparedness are very well implemented and all relevant staff have received training to ensure that these processes continue to be operated effectively.” The system has been given continued Registration to ISO 14001, which is an assurance to our customers that we can be trusted to take an ethical approach to the environment.
