Sustainability standards and the Environment
At BioLogiQ we believe that a good business is a safe, sustainable and profitable one. To this end, we fully integrate safety and sustainability concerns into our business to better help you integrate them into yours. BioLogiQ has designed, produced and implemented an integrated sustainability management system based on the recommended approach of PAS 99:2006 “Specification of common management system requirements as a framework for integration” to incorporate the requirements of ISO 14001: 2004, ISO 9001:2008 and OHSAS 18001: 2007 standards as well as standard 14064 Part 1 to responsibly manage our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
This system enables us to meet the requirements of our sustainability policy and comply with our ethical responsibility to lead by example and reduce our own environmental impacts including our carbon and ecological footprints. Hence, in our own business, we put sustainability into practice by:
- Reusing, reducing and recycling our waste,
- Reducing our energy and fuel usage,
- Purchasing sustainable products,
- Producing a greenhouse gas inventory, and
- Carbon offsetting of the electrical, fuel and heating energy that we are obliged to use.
We also act to address the issue of biodiversity loss by conserving biodiversity through our activities and by active support of biodiversity initiatives.
To take responsibility for those greenhouse gas emissions which we cannot avoid, we purchase CarbonBalanced carbon offsets which by meeting Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance standards contribute to the preservation of biodiversity and support of sustainable communities. The certificate for our GHG offsets for 2014 can be downloaded here: Certificate 2014.
Lastly, we actively promote sustainability through the ongoing development of environmentally-responsible and sustainable business practices and consulting services. Also, when you attend any of our Energy, Environmental or Sustainability courses, we offset the carbon emissions from all our courses including your travel and other activities using the Carbon Balanced Programme of the World Land Trust (WLT).
