Managing the Environmental Way - ISO 14001:2004 Apeks Marine Equipment recognises the impact that our manufacturing processes could have on the environment. As champions of the underwater world we have always had an environmental ethos and a keen understanding and appreciation of environmental issues. Further to this, in 2006 we decided to look at every aspect of our business from an environmental point of view. We measured the impact each individual process has on the environment, with aims to remove or reduce the effect of these processes. An Environmental Management System was established in 2006 in accordance with ISO 14001. This has helped us to: reduce energy use reduce use of other resources minimise waste reduce operating costs improve compliance with environmental legislation and regulations reduce environmental risks After several audits by an external verifier, Apeks Marine Equipment Ltd was awarded ISO 14001 accreditation by The British Standards Institute. Apeks is the first diving equipment manufacturer in the world to receive this standard and it’s an achievement of which we are extremely proud.
