PEOPLECERT recognises that the long term viability of our business and community is dependent on sustainable operations. We therefore strive to act as responsible stewards of the environment and commit to continual improvement, through the adoption and implementation of an Environmental Management System certified to the ISO 14001 standard.
The system measures the annual impact of our business operations on the environment, allowing us to monitor and improve our operations and as such contribute to the use of environmental friendly methods.
