Prohire gains environmental accreditation

Commercial vehicle hire and fleet management firm Prohire has achieved the internationally recognised environmental management standard, ISO 14001, following an independent audit of its environmental management system.

The ISO 14001 standard helps organisations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste. It also includes the need for continual improvement of an organisation’s systems and approach to environmental concerns.

Organisations are also assessed to ensure the increased prominence of environmental management within the organisation’s strategic planning processes, greater input from leadership and a stronger commitment to proactive initiatives that boost environmental performance.

Prohire’s accreditation is the result of a process that took over six months. It was led by Prohire’s asset finance and training manager, Arlene Steele, and involved a GAP Analysis, Stage 1 and Stage 2 assessments.

Prohire said to help gain the accreditation and continue to improve it has formed a team of key colleagues with a passion for the delivery of the company’s ESG initiatives who meet regularly to drive forward its environmental, social and governance agenda.

“The accreditation provides a framework for a systematic and integrated approach for all employees, which allows the environmental management system to become part of the fabric of our business.

“Through the implementation of this standard, we are already seeing increased employee engagement that aligns with our ongoing ESG plans.”
