UK-based Automated Packaging Systems has updated its ISO accreditations for environmental management and quality management in order to meet its customers’ demands, as well as improve its environmental impact.

Automated Packaging Systems now has an ISO 9001: 2015 accreditation for quality management, which ensures that the company has the correct logistical and inclusive processes in place to improve the quality of the product.

The company’s environmental management accreditation has been updated to ISO 14001: 2015.

Automated Packaging Systems managing director Peter Wylie said: “We have always been committed to ensuring our processes meet the latest British and International standards and we were one of the first UK companies to embrace ISO 9000.

“The latest standard incorporates a company’s processes into its strategic line of business, which is a major step in the right direction as it ensures complete transparency of internal processes, reduces the risk of errors and increases customer satisfaction.

“There is still a long way to go for the industry but taking measures to improve environmental impact enables companies to ingrain issues such as this into its culture.”

“It is also important that packaging companies are environmentally aware and our newly updated accreditation highlights that Automated Packaging Systems takes environmental issues seriously.”

The ISO 14001: 2015 accreditation is compatible with ISO 9001: 2015 and provides a framework to measure and improve the company’s environmental impact and corporate social responsibilities.

Wylie said: “There is still a long way to go for the industry but proactively taking measures to improve environmental impact enables companies to ingrain issues such as this into its culture and achieve complete employee engagement, which is crucial to meet ever-changing political and stakeholder requirements.

“Ultimately, each decision made at every level in the company should consider the impact on the environment.”
