ISO14001 – Graduate Landscapes Embark on Vehicle Fleet Electrification

December 3, 2021

As part of #ISO14001 for environment and our drive to constantly improve, we are delighted to announce we are introducing our first #electricvehicle into our fleet.

We believe in protecting our environment for future generations, that means doing our bit to reduce our emissions as much as possible. We look forward to expanding our EV fleet over the coming years!

What is ISO14001 and why do we invest time and effort in to achieving this specific ISO standard for the environment?

ISO standards are some of the most stringent and widely acclaimed organizational process standards in the world. They are rigorous and with that rigor comes the confidence that you are making real improvements in the way you conduct your business.

ISO14001 is the internationally agreed standard that lays out the requirements for an environmental management system. It creates a stringent and coherent framework for companies and organizations to improve their environmental performance, by being more efficient in their use of resources and reduction of waste. Its scope includes air pollution, water and sewage issues, waste management, soil contamination, climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Graduate Landscapes feel a close affinity with the ISO14001 certification. As Landscape architects an accreditation that values attention to detail, high quality and most importantly a strong focus on ensuring we reduce the impact of our work on the environment, is a natural fit. After all, our work is about creating beautiful designs from and for nature.

Our new Mercedes eSprinter all-electric is the corner stone of our journey to vehicle fleet electrification and forms an integral part of our ongoing ISO14001 certification. The eSprinter is a class leading fully electric panel van capable of 90 miles WLTP and rapid fast charging. The eSprinter offers all the practicality and durability our landscape team need in their daily activities, as well as the peace of mind they gain from its non polluting powertrain.
