Futureglass has worked hard to be able to claim ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditation because the values that they stand for are something that we strongly believe in, however many people don’t understand what ISO accreditation means or how it impacts us as a company, so we thought we would try and shed some light on the subject.
ISO is an International Organisation for Standardisation it is an independent, non governmental organisation that develops voluntary standards that are recognised internationally. Their standards are set forward to ensure that “services are safe, reliable and of good quality”.
Futureglass is proud to adhere to these standards. The standards that we comply with are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and these relate to quality management and environmental management respectively.
ISO 9001 is concerned with quality management and ensuring that a product or service meets certain expectations and standards. ISO 9001 is the only standard that can be certified to and is split into 8 principles all of which are about making sure that our customer service is the best it can be and our products are of a high standard fit for their purpose. It also makes sure our employee’s feel valued and appreciated, our business runs smoothly and efficiently which in turn allows us to better serve you, and that our business to business interactions are mutually beneficial and no one is being taken advantage of. In essence it ensures that all interactions with or within a company or organisation is a pleasant and useful experience for everyone involved.
ISO 14001 is concerned with environmental management and ensuring that all aspects of our company produce as little waste as possible. Futureglass strongly believes in continually striving for better because there is always room for improvement, however we don’t believe in progress at the cost of another person’s well being or the climate. We are responsible with all of our materials and manufacturing processes, we build products designed to have a long life and we actively strive to minimise waste in our manufacturing processes.
These standards mean a lot to us because they are an independently verified way of showing you that Futureglass makes good, high quality products, we are responsible and we firmly believe in providing nothing but the best products and services to everyone we work with.
