Brakes has reached the latest standard in the ISO 14001 environmental audit as specified by the British Assessment Bureau.
The accreditation covers group sites operated as M&J Seafood, Wild Harvest, Pauleys and Freshfayre, as well as delivered foodservice depots.
The certification encourages businesses to do the following:
• Identify cost savings with greater emphasis on resource, waste and energy management
• Develop corporate image and credibility
• Quantify, monitor and control the impact of operations on the environment, now and in the future.
• Ensure legislative awareness and compliance.
Ian Hunt, Brakes’ head of engineering & environment, said: “We are committed to leading the foodservice industry in CSR (corporate social responsibility) so we are delighted to have met the ISO 14001 standards.
“We know our customers want to be able to rely on us to provide products and a service that is sustainable and has a low environmental impact.”
