Fresh achieves green ISO accreditation

Cheshire-based agency Fresh has achieved ISO14001 accreditation in recognition of its environmental commitments – a move that it claims puts it an elite 1% group of British companies. The international standard focuses on environmental management, and encourages organisations to put in place procedures for ongoing environmental improvement. Fresh has placed emphasis on reducing its environmental impact since moving into its purpose-built headquarters last September. Measures introduced include a light sensor system, tinted windows, timed heating and air conditioning units, water saving measures and thorough recycling and waste management practices. “As a company we take our green responsibilities very seriously and constantly strive to improve our environmental performance,” said Fresh managing director Nick Porter. “We are proud to be the first events company in the North West to achieve this accreditation, but I hope others will follow our lead.” Fresh is now developing a number of schemes in line with its green policy. These include working with other companies to develop a local transport scheme that includes a shuttle bus service and a car share/public transport incentive scheme to cut down on emissions. Recognition of the company’s environmental credentials coincides with the award of the ISO9001 accreditation for quality management, focusing on customer quality and satisfaction. Porter added: “The Fresh Group has grown from a team of three to 43 in three-and-a-half years. What has remained central to that growth is the 100% commitment we have to providing the best quality client service possible. The 9001 accreditation goes to show the efforts made on a daily basis to achieve that aim.”
