HLM has been certified as having met the international standards of ISO 14001:2004, an Environmental Management Standard. The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) established the Environmental Management System to encourage companies to evaluate all areas where its activities have an environmental impact.
Chris Liddle, chairman said: “We are entirely committed to sustainability. It is one of our four, core services and an area where we actively encourage our clients to go beyond regulatory requirements. It is also key to our business operations and we have made great progress in reducing our environmental impact and changing the behaviour of our staff for the better. ISO 14001 certification is testament to our efforts and success to date.”
HLM has developed a system of compliance under the ISO certification and has initiated new procedures for ensuring continuing improvement.
