Wisbech firm receives British Standards environmental accreditation

A WISBECH firm has had its environmental credentials endorsed after receiving accreditation from the British Standards Institution.

Anglia Components, a distributor of electronic components on Sandall Road, collected the ISO 14001 honour from Steve Barclay, MP for North East Cambridgeshire, who presented the award.

Businesses that help minimise how their operations impact on the environment are accredited with the internationally accepted standard.

Steve Rawlins, Anglia’s CEO, said: “British Standards has examined Anglia’s procedures for the handling of waste streams, recycling processes, energy and materials saving initiatives.

“We’re fully committed to minimising the environmental impact of conducting business and pursuing opportunities to benefit in reduced operational costs wherever possible.”

Anglia, the UK’s leading privately owned electronic component distributor, is already one of an elite few distributors to hold AS9120, one of the world’s most demanding quality standards.

Mr Barclay said: “The award is testament to this company’s commitment to meeting standards as well as commitment to the environment.
