Bentley Motors’ headquarters in Crewe has been successfully reaccredited with the latest ISO 14001:2015 environmental management standard and ISO 50001:2018 energy management standards.
One year since achieving carbon neutral status for Crewe factory, Bentley has been reaccredited against the energy and environmental management standards ISO 50001 and 14001.
The Pyms Lane site, where all Bentley models are designed, engineered and manufactured, was the first automotive plant in the UK to achieve the ISO 14001 standard in 1999. This makes it one of the longest-standing examples of environmental best practise in the sector through an ongoing focus on reducing waste, energy and water use, whilst maximising recycling and biodiversity.
Peter Bosch. Member of the Board for Manufacturing said:
Adopting and achieving the highest standards of environmental compliance is a key part of our sustainability strategy as we aim to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and become leaders in sustainable luxury mobility.
Successfully achieving both the ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 reaccreditations – alongside the carbon neutral status we secured last year, is the result of a long-term strategy that has seen us investing in onsite renewable solar energy and switching to green gas. We have also consistently and comprehensively reviewed all aspects of our operations to reduce water and energy use, waste and emissions – whilst maximising biodiversity.
We’re continuing to innovate in this area with a future focus on onsite logistics and new low energy buildings and facilities
The company is an industry leader in environmental compliance and plays a key part in Bentley’s commitment to becoming most sustainable luxury automotive manufacturer.
Bentley was the first UK automotive manufacturer to achieve both standards – with ISO 14001 now in place for over 20 years.
