Tex Plastics Secures Environmental Standard ISO 14001
The awarding of the Environmental Standard reflects our vision to monitor and control the impact of operations on the environment, both now and in the future at Tex Plastics Derby.
ISO 14001 the world’s most recognised environmental management system standard
The team at Tex Plastics have developed a process which identifies possible environmental risks and waste during the design and manufacturing operations. Through putting a high priority on dealing with them, means we were able to identify and apply solutions which reduce or remove the negative environmental impact. Measures such as the implementation of a waste recycling program, control of noise, materials used, water and electricity consumption. All of which help us to stay commercially successful fulfiling at the same time our environmental responsibility.
ISO 14001 provides a roadmap for improving our organisation’s environmental performance
The cornerstones of our environmental policy are:
- Maintaining commitment from senior management and buy-in from employees
- Assessing the impact your activities have on the environment
- Maintaining controls on your activities that have a significant environmental impact
- Monitoring developments in environmental legislation and checking compliance
- Continually looking for opportunities to reduce your impact on the environment and/or improving the environmental benefit of your products and services.
“We are proud to announce that Tex Plastics Derby has been awarded the most recognised international standard for environmental management systems. Having achieved this award, now means we can tangibly demonstrate to all stakeholders our commitment and focus in improving environmental performance across all aspects of the business as directed by our Environmental Policy.”
Guy Sentance, Production Director & General Manager at Tex Industrial Plastics
