Sydney, Nsw Australia (PressExposure) October 28, 2011 -- Bureau Veritas, the world's leading certification body and GreenBizCheck finalised an agreement earlier this year whereby Bureau Veritas will jointly distribute GreenBizCheck's self assessed online environmental office certification program alongside the ISO14001 standard.
Bureau Veritas has assessed and verified the GreenBizCheck certification program. To add further value they also provide a fast and efficient desktop audit of our Bronze, Silver and Gold certifications. In conjunction with Bureau Veritas GreenBizCheck has developed a substantially lower cost, streamlined process for clients who wish to obtain ISO14001 certification.
Achieving the ISO 14001 Certification is a lengthy and stringent process. However, GreenBizCheck has created a support system which helps businesses achieve the ISO 14001 certification quicker and easier. GreenBizCheck's program assists businesses by helping them implement the required processes more efficiently therefore making the process less time consuming. The ISO 14001 audit can be quite an expensive task so it is important to make sure you have successfully fulfilled all of the ISO 14001 requirements before initiating the audit - this is what the GreenBizCheck programs does.
Sustainability is set to become one of the business community's highest priorities as organisation's around the world come under increasing pressure to reduce their environmental impact. ISO 14001 is part of a series of international standards applicable to any organisation. ISO 14001 specifies the most important requirements to identify, control and monitor the environmental aspects and impacts of the operations of an organisation and how to manage and improve the system as a whole. The ISO 14000 series ensure that businesses take a responsible and credible approach.
GreenBizCheck, Managing Director, Nicholas Bernhardt said, "We have long been promoting our certification standard as a great entry-level tool for the more complex ISO14001 standard; it is actually the perfect program for organisations who want ISO14001. It is user friendly, online and results in a carbon footprint reduction. We are very happy to be working with Bureau Veritas and know that this alliance will add value to both our organisations."
