Pyroguard achieves ISO 14001:2015 Standard for environmental management
Pyroguard, part of the Technical Fire Safety Group and the leading independent provider of fire safety glass solutions, is pleased to announce that it has achieved the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management standard across its UK sites.
The internationally accepted ISO 14001 standard outlines the most effective ways to put a successful environmental management system in place, designed to help organisations identify, manage, monitor and improve their environmental performance, such as through a more efficient use of resources and/or a reduction in waste.
Speaking about the achievement, Richard Ainsworth, Group Technical Director, said: “All of us at Pyroguard are delighted to now officially be certified as being compliant with the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 – it’s testament to the hard work and dedication of all our teams and colleagues in making this ambition a reality. In today’s climate, it’s more important than ever for companies and industries to be environmentally conscious. By achieving this standard, we have reaffirmed our ongoing commitment to sustainable and responsible manufacturing and hope to encourage others to do the same.”
Pyroguard’s commitment to environmental sustainability was at the forefront when planning the move into its new larger UK project glass manufacturing site in Spring 2021. This included selecting a new build site on the basis of its energy efficiency and choosing the most efficient curing ovens and heating technologies for the manufacture of the Pyroguard Protect Range of products. The factory layout and flow has also been designed to minimise waste and maximise recycling opportunities.
Part of the Technical Fire Safety Group, Pyroguard has been manufacturing and supplying its range of fire safety glass solutions to the construction market for over 30 years.
