TPN achieves ISO 50001 as part of continuing environmental improvement plan
TPN has added to its impressive list of accreditations by achieving ISO 50001
25 May 2022, Minworth UK: THE Pallet Network (TPN) has achieved its next environmental milestone by achieving ISO 50001 accreditation, with a management plan to cut energy usage across all its sites.
The accreditation lays the groundwork for TPN’s next major project which is to complete its SECR - Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting – obligations. SECR requires companies to report on their direct and indirect environmental impacts, including greenhouses gases, water, waste, materials and energy efficiency, biodiversity and emissions to air, land and water.
The company has recently been reviewing all its operation in terms of carbon impact, says HSEQ manager, Steve Underwood. It has also recently boosted its health and safety team with the additions of Julia Robinson and Soheal Mir as Health & Safety Assistants.
“We want our operation to be sustainable and environmentally friendly,” says Steve, “and that starts with measurement and strong actionable plans. The ISO 50001 represents our next plan to manage energy usage.”
Some of TPN’s key environmental achievements to date include:
TPN has been in a leader in the sector in terms of accreditations, having ISO 45001, 9001, 14001, and 27001, covering health and safety, quality, environmental management and data security. It also extends its ISO 9001-accrediting audit to its TPN Partners every year.
“We are committed to imrpoving our environmental performance across all areas of the business,” says Steve. “We will also work with our 130 Partner depots, sharing knowledge and helping them to both improve and measure their environmental impact.”
