Pyroguard, part of the Technical Fire Safety Group, has achieved ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management standard across its UK sites.

The ISO 14001 standard outlines the most effective ways to put a successful environmental management system in place, designed to help organisations identify, manage, monitor and improve their environmental performance, such as through a more efficient use of resources and/or a reduction in waste.

Group technical director Richard Ainsworth said: “In today’s climate, it’s more important than ever for companies and industries to be environmentally conscious. By achieving this standard, we have reaffirmed our ongoing commitment to sustainable and responsible manufacturing and hope to encourage others to do the same.”

The company says its commitment to environmental sustainability was at the forefront when planning the move into its new larger UK project glass manufacturing site earlier this year.  This included selecting a new build site on the basis of its energy efficiency and choosing the most efficient curing ovens and heating technologies for the manufacture of the Pyroguard Protect Range of products. The factory layout and flow has also been designed to minimise waste and maximise recycling opportunities.
