Sustainability and responsibility are central to Cambridge Circuit Company Ltd’s ethos; strengthened by the recent successful registration to an internationally recognised environmental management system standard.

ISO 14001 is the international standard for environmental management systems (EMS) and the most widely used EMS in the world, with over 14,000 UK certified organisations and more than 250,000 ISO 14001 certificates issued globally.

Our successful registration to ISO 14001:2015, which is the most recent version of the standard, shows a commitment to environmental policy, impact reduction, pollution prevention, legal compliance, corporate responsibility, reputation and resource management.

We’ve achieved this standard with support from NQA – which provides accredited certification, training and support services. NQA helps organisations of all sizes to perform better in quality, environment, energy, sustainability and health and safety management.

Some of the benefits Cambridge Circuit Company Ltd, which specialises in the manufacture of Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), will gain from the recent certification include:

Improved environmental management:
Reducing resource use, improving the overall efficiency of the business and keeping the larger impact of operations to an absolute minimum.

Legal compliance:
Understanding how statutory and regulatory requirements impact the organisation and customers.

We’ve also upgraded all of our lights to LED to reduce our electricity usage and over the years we’ve installed pure water recovery systems on our Electrolytic Plating Line, Immersion Silver line and Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold (E.N.I.G) processes. This means where previously thousands of litres of water was used, we now have a tiny fraction of the consumption – reusing existing water recycled through carbon and mix resin cylinders.

Mark Sanford, Cambridge Circuit Company Ltd Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted to have achieved this certification which proves our dedication to improving environmental standards. Industry has a vital role to play in protecting the environment by reducing consumption and waste to become as sustainable as possible, and we’re pleased to be part of that effort.

“In sourcing your PCBs from the newly accredited ISO 14001:2015 Cambridge Circuit Company, you can be assured we take the environmental aspects of our business seriously and adhere to the leading internationally recognised standards.”
