Pictons Solicitors LLP has become the latest GBN member business, supported under the BETI+ programme, to achieve the prestigious ISO 140001 certification for its Luton office.
ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised environmental management systems standard and obtaining this certification represents a significant achievement and proof of Pictons’ commitment to improving its environmental performance.
To attain the certification Pictons worked closely with local charity Bedfordshire Green Business Network. By attending various courses and seminars run by the Network and with the assistance of the on-site support offered, Pictons’ Partner Anil Virji was able to write the firm’s EMS.
In the run up to the audit in December 2009, Pictons enlisted the services of EcoSmart Consultancy.
Anil Virji, partner in the company, said: “This is an excellent achievement for the firm and demonstrates to our many clients in the industrial sector, who are constantly being squeezed by the amount of environmental legislation with which they have to comply, that we understand what they are going through. It also offers further proof of our commitment to the community and the environment.”
It is envisaged that within the next 12 months the certification will be extended to include its Hemel Hempstead and Milton Keynes offices.
