We’re proud to announce that Footprint Recycling are ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2105 certified.

We now hold ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 accreditations. To achieve these globally recognised awards, we have evidenced our quality management systems, as well as the high level of quality customer service that we provide, while having a strong focus on sustainable development initiatives.

We worked towards our ISO accreditation to demonstrate our promise to provide high-quality, trusted services to our customers and our ongoing commitment to developing our ethical management systems.

To become ISO compliant, we underwent a long and extensive evaluation process that included an in-depth assessment of our quality management systems, a management system documentation review, and an audit of our processes and compliance, which was successful.

So, what are ISO certifications and why are they important?
ISO certifications are a seal of approval from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) body that acknowledges a company is run to one of their developed and published international standards. The ISO are an independent, non-governmental international organisation that brings together experts to share knowledge and develop standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.

What is ISO 9001:2015?
ISO 9001:2015 is the internationally recognised Standard for Quality Management and is used by over 1 million companies; it was created to give organisations such as ours an internationally recognised award that proves we’re dedicated to reducing costs and improving productivity.

ISO 9001:2015 certification also assures our customers that they will receive consistent, quality products and services.

How ISO 9001:2015 help us?
ISO 9001 helps us improve quality and demonstrates to our clients that we have a strict set of standards in place, including customer focus, leadership, engagement of people, process approach, continual improvement, evidence-based decision-making, and relationship management.

What are the benefits of ISO 9001?
Benefits of ISO 9001 Certification include – increased efficiency, international recognition, a factual approach to decision-making, better supplier relationships, improved customer satisfaction, and excellent employee morale.

What is ISO 14001:2015?
ISO 14001:2015 is the International Standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS). Designed to help businesses and other organisations to reduce their environmental impact.

Implementing ISO 14001:2015 helps us to demonstrate to our customers and stakeholders that we are committed to reducing our environmental impact (in addition to helping our customers reduce theirs). In addition, it demonstrates our pledge to reduce waste and improve our resource efficiency.

Our ISO certifications demonstrate that we have robust, clearly defined procedures in all our business areas, such as risk management, handling of documents and data, environmental awareness, and strong business continuity processes.

We believe our ISO accreditations are important as they demonstrate the quality of service provided. Investing in a new product or service, often from a company you have not previously worked with, can be unnerving. The ISO certificate is a testimony of trust that demonstrates our commitment to you.

Now that we’re officially ISO accredited, we can proudly state that Footprint Recycling (continues and officially) operates with both quality and transparency in everything we do.
