New accreditation for Carter Jonas' specialist Infrastructures Team will enhance its environmental performance and help influence the performance of its clients.

Based in London and Swindon, the firm's Infrastructures Team was formed seven years ago, and has achieved BS EN ISO 14001 certification in just six months. This accreditation controls the environmental impacts of the Team's activities and makes a commitment to continually improve its environmental performance. It also applies to environmental aspects which the organisation can control and over which it can be expected to influence its client base.

Over the last seven years, the Team, headed by Mark Hall-Digweed, has won several contracts with Network Rail and other organisations and is extending its services nationally through recently awarded Framework Agreements to the rail industry.

“Those who have experienced our proactive approach to problem solving and our commitment to the delivery of projects on time have benefitted substantially from the ‘added value’ we can contribute to a project,” said Mark Hall-Digweed.

“This new certification from BSI shows not only our commitment to sound environmental thinking on our own behalf but also our willingness to influence the outcome of projects we undertake for clients.

“We started to compile our Environmental Systems Manual in early 2008 and were recommended for certification by BSI when they inspected the ESM at the end of last year.

“The process involves further independent verification by BSI and following a final meeting with them in July we have now been issued with our certificate. It has been a tremendous achievement in such a short timescale.

“Certification enhances our growing reputation for providing extensive professional services to the public sector and other corporate clients and demonstrates Carter Jonas’ commitment to developing Infrastructures as an important and growing sector of its business.”
