Achieving ISO 9001 creates a positive statement to prospective customers about your Organisation’s policy towards quality and the importance you place on meeting your customer’s needs.

A second register relating to the environmental impact of your own activities and how you are addressing any negative impacts. It is significant to note that the scope of this involves global issues such as climate change and the hole in the ozone layer.
