North East ISO consultants Compliant, support marine software business to gain ISO 14001.

Sunderland based ISO consultants, Compliant, are delighted to have supported fellow north east business, Sir Joseph Isherwood, to gain ISO 14001, the internationally recognised environmental standard.

The North Tyneside based marine software organisation, which has traded since 1907, works with businesses across the globe, providing a range of systems for maintenance management, document control, data communication and integrated logistic support.

With environmental sustainability at the heart of the business, the company approached Compliant to support them in gaining the standard as they looked to demonstrate their commitment to reducing their carbon footprint and achieving their long-term environmental goals.

Compliant, who support businesses across all sectors within the UK, Ireland and the USA to gain ISO certification, were delighted to work with such a forward-thinking and established north east business.  Director, Mark Henderson, commented, ‘Many businesses are now thinking seriously about the impact they are having on climate change and the environment.  Commercially, many bids, tenders and government frameworks now insist that suppliers are committed to good environmental practices therefore in order to secure new markets and grow, businesses have to be aware of their impact and demonstrate their certifications.

It's always great to work with a fellow north east business, however, we were delighted to support such an established company with such a rich heritage in our region.  Since gaining the standard, the team have embraced the framework and are embedding the culture within their workforce which is great for us to be a part of.’

Paul Dixon, Technical Manager at Sir Joseph Isherwood, commented, ‘Environmental sustainability and the impact on climate change is something that is at the heart of our business.  When we started to research the ISO 14001 standard, we decided to approach this with a two-pronged attack, this was to improve our sustainability while reducing our carbon footprint and from a commercial perspective, we knew that we needed the standard to open further opportunities within our industry.

As we support clients across the globe, having the internationally recognised standard will prove our credibility, transverse across all of our operations and demonstrate our commitment to the environment, we look forward to maintaining this with the support of Compliant in the future.’
