To compliment the efforts, AGVC has made major investments in the last few years and has implemented actions to limit the impact of its activities on the environment.

Continuing to reassess our environmental objectives on a regular basis, AGVC are committed to reducing its environmental impact.

ISO14001:2015 Accreditation

What is ISO14001:2015?
ISO14001:2015 is an international standard that specifies requirements for controlling and improving environmental performance throughout a business. It also requires an organisation to identify and demonstrate compliance with environmental legislation, as well as setting environmental objectives to continually improve performance. With ever increasing pressure on organisations to prove their environmental credentials, holding ISO14001 certification can demonstrate compliance and environmental commitment.
The aims of the ISO14001:2015 Standard are:
• Improve resource efficiency
• Reduce waste
• Provide assurance that environmental impact is being measured
• Meet legal obligations
• Improve overall environmental impact
• Manage environmental obligations with consistency
