The development of Greenbuddies is based on the harmonious reconciliation of economic growth, social justice and environmental protection, i.e. on the principles of sustainable development. All our employees are aware of their responsibility towards future generations.
Greenbuddies became ISO 14001 certified
In the January issue of our newsletter, we told you about our plans to obtain ISO 14001 certification, which is an important tool for managing the environmental impact of a company's activities. We are very honoured to tell you that this month we have met all the requirements for certification and have become a legal holder of ISO 14001:2016.
Our company's goal is to minimize the consumption of materials and raw materials to the level set by technical standards and regulations so that unnecessary waste, including energy and fuel, is avoided. We strive to make the activities we carry out as environmentally friendly as possible. Contractors are familiarised with the principles of process optimisation and the requirements for machinery (e.g. electrically powered) and waste management. In order to further reduce environmental burdens, vehicles are serviced at set intervals and times to minimise harmful emissions to the air, to limit noise to an acceptable level and to prevent leakages of operating fluids, especially oil. All our employees are involved in the process of reducing the production of pollutants (emissions, waste).
One of the source materials for determining our company's environmental profile is the environmental register, which is continuously updated and evaluated. At the same time, we have introduced an Environmental Management Directive, the purpose of which is also to bring all the company's activities into line with the requirements of applicable laws and related regulations in the field of environmental protection, especially in the areas of air protection, water management, waste management, etc.
We carry out internal audits to check compliance with the defined principles in all organisational units of the company included in the integrated management system.
It is well known that Greenbuddies has already obtained several ISO certifications in previous years. In 2018, we focused on our quality management system and met the requirements for the ISO 9001:2015 standard. In January 2021, we as a company focused on occupational health and safety and became ISO 45001:2018 certified, replacing the original OHSAS 18001 standard.
We believe that by continuously improving our internal processes, we will become a stronger player with a favourable market position.
