Rotec Hydraulics Ltd Celebrates 100% Achilles Audit Success

100% Achilles audit _Rotec Hydraulics Ltd

Following an in-person audit from Achilles last month, Rotec are delighted to announce they have achieved a perfect 100% score once again.

A rigorous audit involving the scrutiny of both Management Systems and Site Operations, the result demonstrates Rotec’s continuous dedication to excellence across all areas.

Achilles assesses the company’s score in key aspects, such as Health & Safety, Environmental, Quality and Corporate & Social Responsibility. By scoring a perfect 100% across all service centres, the accreditation reassures clients that Rotec are committed to the very highest of standards, as independently verified by Achilles.

Managing Director of Rotec Hydraulics Ltd, Paul Prouse said,

“Scoring a perfect 100% in all areas, across all sites, yet again is a real testament to the importance we place on consistently high standards across the business in both our management and site operational functions.”

Rotec Hydraulics Ltd Achieves ISO 14001:2015 Certification

Rotec is pleased to announce it has achieved ISO 14001:2015 certification.

ISO:14001 joins Rotec’s existing certifications, including ISO 9001, JOSCAR and SafeContractor.

ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised standard that relates to a stringent and specific set of requirements all linked to systems of environmental management.

Revised in 2015, ISO 14001 brings an increased focus on sustainable development and supporting businesses to effectively manage the environmental challenges of the future. It is now the most widely recognised Environmental Management System (EMS) in the world and provides businesses with a framework for implementing sustainable practices. This includes covering issues such as the establishment, implementation, maintenance and improvement of an EMS.

Rotec’s Quality Systems Manager, Josie Chamberlain said,

“When considering how to implement ISO 14001:2015 it made sense to integrate it with our ISO 9001:2015 approved Quality system as there were crossovers in the standards.

 

“The Rotec team embraced the standard, ensuring that we have a systematic approach to our environmental management and demonstrates our sustainable commitment to our customers.”

Through the process of certification, Rotec has undergone audits at all company service centres with excellent results. Every one of Rotec’s locations have demonstrated the effectiveness of their EMS processes and the organisation’s commitment to becoming more sustainable and net zero in future years.

The ISO 140001 certification comes a few months after the business released a statement pledging its commitment to halving its carbon emissions by 2030 and becoming carbon neutral by 2040.

A 2021 ‘Carbon Footprint Assessment’ at Rotec identified the main sources of the company’s carbon emissions and has ensured necessary management frameworks, processes and systems for decreasing the company’s carbon footprint are data-driven and have measurable targets. Rotec have also recently received the FNZ Standard – a benchmark and progress recording and monitoring tool, which is verified and audited by future Net Zero.

Paul Prouse, Rotec’s Managing Director, commented,

 “We are delighted to achieve ISO 14001:2015 certification across all of our business sites. Rotec’s environmental commitment to achieve net zero by 2040 has driven our framework for implementing sustainable practices and we have embedded our plan to reduce the company’s carbon footprint within our business strategy.

 

“As part of being an environmentally responsible company, we are committed to supporting our customers to become more sustainable by designing and offering more energy-efficient and eco-friendly engineering solutions.”

Rotec Pledges to Become Net Zero

Businesses taking action to reduce their carbon footprint is critically important in achieving the UK’s goals to tackle climate change by 2050, from cutting emissions in their supply chains to opting for sustainable business practices.

We are proud to announce Rotec has committed to becoming a net zero business by pledging to half its carbon emissions by 2030 and become carbon neutral by 2040.

A recent ‘Carbon Footprint Assessment’ identified the main sources of our carbon emissions and has ensured necessary management frameworks, processes and systems for decreasing the company’s carbon footprint are data-driven and have measurable targets. We have also recently received our FNZ Standard – a benchmark and progress recording and monitoring tool, which is verified and audited by future Net Zero.

To achieve net zero by 2040, Rotec will first focus on reducing emissions caused in-house and by their supply chain to the lowest possible level. Any emissions that cannot be eliminated will need to be offset through schemes that remove carbon from the atmosphere.

All of our service centres, based throughout the South West of the UK, have already taken a number of steps towards our net zero goal, and will continue to take future action in the coming years; continuously looking for new ways to become more sustainably responsible and ultimately carbon neutral.

Paul Prouse, Rotec’s Managing Director, commented,

“We are pleased to announce our environmental commitment to achieve net zero by 2040. Reducing Rotec’s carbon footprint is embedded within our business strategy.

 

“As part of being an environmentally responsible company, we are committed to supporting our customers to become more sustainable by designing and offering more energy-efficient and eco-friendly engineering solutions.”
