Bentley Motors’, being the first UK automotive producer of both standards, has efficaciously reaccredited with the latest ISO 14001:2015 environmental management and ISO 50001:2018 energy management standards. Industry-leading environmental agreement plays an important part in Bentley’s obligation to become the most maintainable automotive manufacturer.
The Pyms Lane site was the first automotive plant in the UK to achieve the ISO 14001 standard in 1999, where all Bentley models are designed and engineered. This makes it one of the largest models of environmental best practice focusing on reducing waste, energy, and water use, whilst making the most of recycling and biodiversity.
Auxiliary steps have concentrated on energy management, including energy monitoring systems and the setting up of the UK’s largest solar carport. The total on-site solar panel energy capacity is now 7.7MW and this has aided to ensure the prosperous reaccreditation of ISO 5000 since 2011. In addition, its approach to onsite renewable energy generation also played an essential role in attaining PAS 2060 carbon-neutral certification one year ago this week from the Carbon Trust. There, All three standards are the benchmarks and are rewarded following a complex audit and self-governing certification and confirmation.
Speaking on it, The Member of the Board for Manufacturing, Bentley, and Peter Bosch enlightens, “Adopting and achieving the highest standards of environmental compliance is a key part of our sustainability strategy as we aim to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and become leaders in sustainable luxury mobility.”
He further added, “Successfully achieving both the ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 reaccreditations – alongside the carbon-neutral status we secured last year, is the result of a long-term strategy that has seen us investing in onsite renewable solar energy and switching to green gas. We have also consistently and comprehensively reviewed all aspects of our operations to reduce water and energy use, waste, and emissions – whilst maximizing biodiversity. We’re continuing to innovate in this area with a future focus on onsite logistics and new low energy buildings and facilities.”
