Amco Group – Helping To Protect The Environment

Amco took the decision to strive for ISO 14001 and have been certified the standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS).

The company wants to reduce their impact on the
environment by implementing a recycling system and diverting their waste from
landfill, demonstrating their commitment to protecting the environment by
implementing this global standard which will enable them to meet their legal
obligations, as well as building trust with customers, suppliers and their own
staff.

Spencer Falaschi Amco Group’s Health & Safety Manager
was the main driver behind this project and he commented. ‘Protecting the
environment is important to Amco and is a real business issue. Many of our
customers and suppliers have specific EMS and Environmental objectives and the
implementation of ISO 14001 policies enables us, as a global logistics
business, to demonstrate to staff, customers and suppliers across our whole
supply chain proposition, that Amco Group are committed to reducing our impact
on the global environment.’

Don Mucci Amco Managing Director added. ‘We are in an
extremely competitive sector wherever we operate across the globe, and
businesses like ours face increasing pressure from customers, suppliers and
governments to look at the impact our activities have on the environment. Amco
now has ISO 14001 certification and this is the easiest and most transparent
way to demonstrate our commitment and further increase and strengthen our
business reputation. ISO 14001 will not just save us fuel, reduce waste, energy
and water consumption, but will help us to become a 1st choice supplier.‘

Mucci continued, We have also recently been certified as an
Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) which gives us HMRC ‘Trusted Trader’ status
and is a mark of our dedication to the reduction of threats to an international
supply chain, so the addition of ISO 14001 goes another step forward in
confirming to our customers why we are the right partner and to future
customers, why we should be their 1st choice supplier.’

ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets
out the requirements for EMS. It helps organisations improve their
environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction
of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.

EMS helps companies and organisations recognise, manage,
monitor and control their environmental issues in a “universal” way.
ISO 14001 can be integrated easily into any existing ISO management system and
is suitable for organisations of all types and sizes.

ISO 14001 requires an organisation to consider all the
environmental issues relevant to its operation. This may include waste
management, water and air pollution issues and the mitigation of waste and
resources.

Amco Group have a proven and successful track record in
international supply chain management and logistics, currently providing
logistics services to many major Automotive OEM. 1st and 2nd tier customers
including Webasto Group, Sertec, , Futaba, DENSO JLR, BMW, FORD, GM, Nissan,
Toyota, Morgan Motor Company, Lear Corporation, MAGNA, Grupo Antolin, Komatsu
