Water management company, Biochemica UK Ltd has become the first UK based firm in the industry to sign up to the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, cementing its promise to corporate social responsibility (CSR).
The UN Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative with over 12,000 signatories in 170 countries. Biochemica, which specialises in water and wastewater treatment services and chemicals, has taken this bold step to ensure it remains at the cutting edge of CSR within the chemical sector.
Water and wastewater treatment specialist, Biochemica UK Ltd has achieved the internationally recognised standard, ISO14001 in acknowledgement of its efforts towards reducing the company’s day-to-day impact on the environment.
ISO14001 sets out a framework for firms to identify and control their environmental impact and provides practical tools to ensure continuous improvement of environmental performance. Accreditation is awarded to companies that can demonstrate that their Environmental Management System (EMS) complies with the standard requirements.
The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) has launched a new globally recognised standard, ISO 14046 to assist all organisations with measuring the environmental impact of water use.
The new standard, which was published on 31 July 2014, allows businesses to conduct and report a water footprint assessment and determine methods to reduce potential environmental impacts.
Billingham based water treatment specialist, Biochemica UK Ltd has been awarded accreditation from safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.
safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.
Earlier this year, the Carbon Trust launched the world’s first independent international certification to recognise and encourage water use reduction and management – the Carbon Trust Water Standard. Dr Tim Robinson, Commercial and Technical Director and co-owner of water treatment specialist Biochemica UK Ltd, shares his thoughts on what organisations can gain from the award and advises on practical steps they can take to meet its requirements.
The Carbon Trust Water Standard is the latest endorsement to come from the leading international certification body, following the successful roll out of its Carbon Standard in 2008. The award provides independent verification and recognition of an organisation’s water credentials. Effectively, it acts as a powerful symbol for firms to globally communicate that they are measuring, managing and reducing their water footprint.
As part of its commitment to providing high quality services, products and support to its UK-wide client base, water management expert Biochemica UK Ltd has released its annual Customer Satisfaction Survey.
Issued to each of the water treatment firm’s clients, the Biochemica Customer Satisfaction Survey aims to gather feedback on performance as a means to determine opportunities to enhance the overall customer experience. The survey forms part of Biochemica’s Quality Assurance System, which is accredited by the ISO9001 standard and adheres to continuous improvement processes.
Water treatment specialist Biochemica UK Ltd has launched a bespoke new service which supports firms in achieving the Carbon Trust Water Standard, a new certification awarded to companies that measure, manage and reduce their water use.
As one of the first water management companies to get behind the Carbon Trust Water Standard, Biochemica is leading the way in inspiring businesses to address their water consumption and gain recognition for their efforts.
Water treatment specialist Biochemica UK Ltd has once again achieved the OHSAS 18001:2007 standard, demonstrating the company’s commitment to maintaining high levels of health and safety.
