OIPT receives ISO14001 certification

Etch, deposition and growth equipment maker Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology (OIPT) says that its headquarters in Bristol, UK has received accreditation to the international environmental management standard ISO14001. The certification reinforces the strong commitment and support from management and staff to minimizing environmental impact, says the firm.

“This accreditation from our certification body, Det Norske Veritas (DNV), means that we have achieved an important business objective,” says general manager Dan Ayres. “The certification provides us with a platform for improved environmental management. It demonstrates to customers, shareholders and investors our commitment to achieving high environmental standards, and it will assist in supporting our continued growth,” he adds.

“In addition to the formal business requirements of the certification, we have put in place an extensive awareness-raising program to encourage our employees to participate, and car share, recycle waste and to rationalize the use of other resources,” Ayres continues. “We actively encourage everyone in the business to participate and continuously improve our performance.”

OIPT says that its accreditation recognizes its determination to manage the ecological impact of its business through tangible measures and a dedication to exceed the expectations of its customers and the community at large.

OIPT is part of the Oxford Instruments Group. Recently, the first league table of company performance under the UK Government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change ‘Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme’ was published, with Oxford Instruments finishing in the top 7% of companies.
