Mitrefinch Australia , developers of comprehensive Time and Attendance and Employee Management solutions, has recently achieved the prestigious ISO 14001 accreditation, which illustrates the organisation’s current and future commitment to controlling and improving their environmental performance and minimising environmental impact.
The ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised standard that outlines a framework to assist businesses in implementing an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). This standard requires an organisation to manage, measure, improve and communicate its environmental programme in a more systematic way.
One of the primary requirements for an ISO 14001 certification is to have a comprehensive list identifying operations that may impact the environment and taking action to reduce such impact.
In order to comply with this requirement, a rigorous audit of Mitrefinch’s operations was carried out by the independent certification body ISOQAR. This audit enabled Mitrefinch to identify aspects of the business that had an impact on the environment and then establish a set of objectives for improvement and an active management programme to achieve them.
Moving forward, regular reviews will be undertaken to ensure that Mitrefinch’s environmental standards are maintained and remain an ongoing focus for the company's management team, facilitating continual organisational improvement.
