UMC Architects are delighted to announce the successful completion of our UKAS accredited certification by Alcumus ISOQAR Ltd to the 2015 standard for ISO14001 Environmental Management System [EMS].
The ISO14001 accreditation integrates with our existing Quality Management System which is certified under ISO9001 and allows the implementation of a framework to maintain and improve our EMS in accordance with the objectives set out within our established Environmental Policy.
As a practice, we are committed to providing a quality service in a manner that ensures a safe and healthy workplace for our employees and visitors which minimises our potential impact on the environment. We are passionate about promoting environmental awareness among our employees and encourage our team to work in an environmentally responsible manner.
UMC Architects recognise that the products of our designs will have far more environmental impact than our own operation therefore we are committed to exercising our professional skills in such a way as to minimise environmental impact in so far as this is possible within the instructions received from our clients.
A huge thanks to Stephen and Carolyn for their endeavours over the last few months in coordinating the audit documentation to demonstrate our compliance.
