Welcome to our May update. We enjoyed a great end to the month of May with some fantastic weather over the bank holiday weekend after what had been an extremely wet few weeks! Restrictions were eased on 17th May meaning that indoor hospitality and entertainment were able to re-open which, considering the amount of rain the whole country seems to have had, was very much appreciated.
The team were kept extremely busy throughout the month of May in terms of consultancy hours. As well as undertaking numerous internal audits, strategic meetings and management reviews, we assisted with a total of 11 assessment days in May. Some of the assessments were conducted on site and in person while some were conducted remotely, and we are pleased to say that all went well – well done to all involved. We are also grateful to welcome another four new customers on board from a variety of sectors.
This month marked Consultant, Paul Nolan’s fifth year with the company. Find out a bit more about him on our blog. Our Office Manager, Adelaide Burton celebrated her 40th Birthday on 28th May and spent a long weekend in the Lake District to celebrate. Our cover photo is taken from her hotel window looking over Bassenthwaite lake.
We are pleased to say that we are nearly fully booked for consultancy over the next two months, which is great to see as things really seem to be returning to normal and confidence appears to be growing. We have noticed specifically that there has been quite a significant increase in companies wishing to achieve ISO14001 (Environmental Management) certification. This could well be in response to changes in government policy (both in the UK and worldwide) to tackle climate change, that are either happening or are imminent. For example, in the UK there has been a lot of coverage this month about Clean Air Zones (CAZ).
Businesses also seem to be realising that having Environmental Management Systems in place can help them move forwards sustainably and efficiently, while ensuring they have a means to manage changes effectively.
May flew by and June looks to be jam packed with more exciting things – we’ll keep you posted.
