We are proud to announce, that after all the hard work, jmarchitects has now achieved companywide ISO 14001:2015 accreditation with BM Trada.
The London studio first gained ISO 14001:2004 accreditation in 2012 and then underwent a recertification process in 2015/16 to meet the criteria of the newly improved 2015 Standard. In 2020/21 a sustainability working group was formed to begin the process of extending the 14001 scope to our other offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester.
ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised Standard, implementing an Environmental Management System (EMS) within the business and the work we carry out. The EMS comprises of a range of policies, procedures and review processes to measure, reduce and manage our environmental impacts whilst always striving for continual improvement and increased environmental outcomes.
The ISO 14001 certification requires jmarchitects to fully consider all environmental factors relevant to our business operations, helping us to improve our performance, and our environmental impacts within both our office procedures and the buildings we design. Successful certification also demonstrates, to our clients, to our colleagues in the industry, to the local communities and other stakeholders our commitment to the environment and to creating sustainable building solutions for the future.
