The impact of ISO 14001
Having started the implementation process in January 2019, Kasai UK met their 10-month deadline with their first audit taking place in November 2019, requiring only a few minor adjustments.
Moving to ISO 14001 has created additional revenue streams for Kasai UK. They recycle oil that is used during manufacturing, as well as recycle and sell cardboard and resin. This, in turn, has led to reductions in skip hire and waste management costs.
Whereas previously they had no reporting framework, ISO 14001 has meant that Kasai UK can now evidence their savings and monitor environmental impact year on year. It has also made them more resilient as an organization due to transparent reporting structures and detailed environmental analysis and dashboarding.
