The scope of the management system is broad, with objectives ranging from bottle lightweighting, packaging, transportation, working practices and communication.ISO 14001 is the international industry standard for managing a company's relationship and interaction with the environment. Based on a cycle of continuous improvement, processes within the Hatch Mansfield management system are designed to set and monitor environmental targets, ensure legal environmental compliance and prevent pollution. Fundamental to all of this is an understanding of Hatch Mansfield's environmental impact which has been evaluated and controls are now in place.
Commenting on this achievement, MD Patrick McGrath said, "At Hatch Mansfield we work closely with suppliers, customers and third parties who have very high standards in terms of environmental credentials. We felt it right that as a UK agent, we needed to be an equally strong link in the chain ensuring that our operations are as environmentally sensitive and sustainable as possible. We have put in place robust measures to keep pushing the bar higher and lead the field in this vital area".
