ISO14001 achieved

We are proud and delighted to have achieved the internationally recognised Environmental Management Standard ISO14001:2015.

This accreditation from the British Assessment Bureau underpins our daily commitment to excellent environmental practices across the work of the charity.  It will also demonstrate to those we work with in the private, public and community sectors that we work to high environmental standards and encourage them to adopt similar practices.

Our British Assessment Bureau Auditor, Derrick Ross said, “It was clear from Keep Scotland Beautiful’s Audits that they were truly committed to the management systems and processes they are implementing in accordance with ISO 14001:2015. Having gaining certification in just eight weeks, to the recently revised Environmental Management System, it demonstrates the charity is a leader in its field. It was a real pleasure and I look forward to visiting the team at KSB on an annual basis for their Surveillance Audits!”

Catherine Gee, Corporate Services Director said: “I am very proud of this accreditation, which recognises our dedication and commitment to the environmental practices that we strive to achieve. 

“We have an ambition to be a beacon of sustainability and environmental practice in the way we manage our operations and how we undertake our work. Gaining ISO14001 is an important part of ensuring that we ‘walk the talk’ and it will help us to make Scotland a cleaner, greener and more sustainable place to live, work and visit.”
