NYK wins ISO environmental certification for Grange Park sites

NYK Logistics has won independent ISO 1400 – 2004 (ISO 14001) environmental certification for its flagship Grange Park distribution complex in Northampton.
Mike Bernon, senior lecturer at the Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management at Cranfield School of Management, presented the certificate to NYK’s implementation team, headed by group quality and environmental manager Darral Beresford.
“Logistics providers need to take the lead in ensuring the highest standards throughout the supply chain and I applaud NYK Logistics for this indication of their commitment,” said Bernon.
NYK’s managing director – operations, Paul Kavanagh said: “ISO 14001 is something our existing and prospective customers are increasingly demanding from their suppliers and which few of our competitors can currently boast. This, combined with the potential for cost savings resulting from better waste and energy management, also makes a compelling commercial case for the implementation of ISO14001.”
Using Grange Park as a blueprint, NYK will roll out Environmental Management Standard ISO14001 to all 40 UK sites in the next two years.
