IOM environment management accreditation is reissued

23.03.2018

The reissue of the certificate demonstrates IOMs commitment to consider all environmental issues relevant to our operations, such as air pollution, water and waste management, soil contamination, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and resource use and efficiency

The accreditation aligns with IOMs socially responsible goals which are to advance health and wellbeing. IOM’s employee-run Environment Group have interwoven the environmental management system into our everyday business strategy.

IOM’s environmental footprint has seen reductions in:

-                      Electricity: reduced consumption by 15%

-                      Fleet: reduced fleet emissions by 8%

-                      Domestic Air Travel: reduced travel by 5%

-                      Paper Usage: reduced usage by 5%

Jeremy Gillis, IOM’s Financial Controller and Environment Group leader says “Re-accreditation is a significant achievement for the company. The environmental management system we have in place demonstrates; our legal compliance, sustainable commitment to stakeholders and in parallel, it is a framework that our employees have been enthusiastic to govern, adopt and engage with.’

Rob Aitken, CEO stated, “Managing our environmental impact is a key priority for the business, and it is great to see the team's hard work supported by tangible reductions in IOM’s environmental footprint, as well as, the reissue of the ISO 14001:2015 accreditation.”
