• Environment

Brown McFarlane was one of the first steel distributors in Europe to be awarded ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system which seeks to lessen the impact of the business on the environment and to actively work to improve it. The company undergoes an annual inspection by external auditors to ensure that standards are maintained and the certification is “ retained. We have found that investing the time to ensure our systems comply with ISO 14001 has also provided very direct benefits to our organisation. 

The current environmental management system is focussed on two key objectives:

  1. Save energy
  2. Continual improvement and training

For the benefit of all stakeholders in the business and the wider community Brown McFarlane is committed to making all of its business units as environmentally friendly as possible.
