The Guinness Storehouse has announced its completion of a quartet of European ISO Management System Standards, having recently achieved ISO 20121 and ISO 9001 in recognition of its environmental processes and procedures.
Combined with it previously achieved SO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications, these four awards acknowledge the Guinness Storehouse’s ongoing commitment to both sustainability and responsible environmental impact standards.
Managing director of Guinness Storehouse, Paul Carty, welcomed the latest endorsement, saying, "We have achieved these certifications through the hard work, support and commitment of the entire team at the Guinness Storehouse and our business partners. As a result of this effort, we have been able to reduce the environmental impact of our business and have also reduced the number of incidents and accidents."
Meanwhile, Michael Brophy, chief executive of Certification Europe commented, “The Guinness Storehouse have demonstrated a real commitment to their CSR policy and governance and ethics standards having achieved an additional two ISO standards certifications. ISO 20121 will empower their staff to pursue business practices with greater sustainability, whilst their commitment to maintaining quality and continuous improvement will be supported by their ISO 9001 standard."
The Guinness Storehouse has also incorporated economic and green concepts into its supply chain over the last few years, which it says will help to drive a sustainable future for the business.
