Neptunus achieves ISO14001:2004 certification

Neptunus, a specialist in temporary buildings and event structures, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the coveted ISO 14001 environmental certification from TÜV Netherlands. After a positive audit last May, the certificate was handed over personally to Neptunus’ Logistics Director, Betty Eilers and H&S Coordinator, Elfried Jacobs.

ISO 14001:2004 refers to a series of standards on environmental management tools and systems. ISO 14001 deals with a company's system for managing its day-to-day operations and how they impact the environment. The Environmental Management System and Environmental Auditing address a wide range of issues.

Matthijs Vreeswijk, Lead auditor of TÜV Netherlands, was impressed with the way Neptunus takes responsibility for its environmental obligations. He comments: "It is important to engage employees on all levels and this starts at the top. The Board showed commitment to the process which is a vital part of the Environmental Management System.”

Betty Eilers is very proud of the Company’s achievement. She explains: "In our logistics systems we focus on waste management. When they evaluated our environmental processes TÜV Netherlands acknowledged that sustainability is already a prominent part of our methods. Recycling and reusability are intertwined in our business practice. The successful certification audit is the next step following our earlier certifications SCA** and ISO 9001.”

Commenting about the environmental objectives she says: "Neptunus Group take responsibility for the environment and supply chain in which we operate. We believe that our products contribute to a more sustainable environment due to the reusability of our structures.  Sustainability is becoming ever more important for our clients and everything in our procedures, from research & development and production to building and dismantling our products reflects our green thinking."
