AB Dynamics’ Environmental Management System has been certified to the ISO 14001 standard following a rigorous six-month implementation programme.
The achievement reflects AB Dynamics plc's commitment to delivering continual environmental improvements across the organisation, as well as assisting the global automotive sector to develop new technologies that will reduce CO2 emissions and improve road safety.
Mark Allman, Managing Director at AB Dynamics said:
“This is a fantastic achievement by everybody involved and we are delighted to be officially accredited. Our customers can be confident that we are a responsible organisation performing to a high level of environmental performance and we will be looking to our suppliers to operate to the same standards.”
The certification applies to the company’s UK headquarters and European operation based in Germany. AB Dynamics’ ISO 9001 Quality Management System certification was also recently extended to include its German operation.
Key to the ongoing success of the system will be the support and involvement from all staff members who will be trained to become environmental champions and assist in the running of the Environmental Management System.
We will also be developing awareness campaigns as well as implementing projects such as tree planting, electrical waste collection, recycling days, beautification projects and improving our management of hazardous waste.
AB Dynamics’ environmental objectives include:
- Reducing gas and electricity usage

- Reducing personal and business travel to decrease the company's carbon impact
- A reduction in water consumption
- Reducing the demand for non-sustainable goods and services
