We Attain ISO 14001:2015 Certification

In a significant milestone for environmental sustainability, Jarvis Cosmetic Developments proudly announces that we have achieved ISO 14001:2015 certification. Independent certification auditors awarded our formal certification on 28 September 2023. This recognition underlines and acknowledges our unwavering commitment to responsible and sustainable business practices.

Project Leader, Suzanne Deacon, says;

“Getting ISO 14001:2015 certified was a no-brainer for us. We were already committed to reducing our carbon footprint, using fewer resources, and producing less waste. Even though our EMS was already well developed, the process of getting the formal ISO 14001 certification required significant commitment and effort from our entire team.

I would like to congratulate the entire team at Jarvis as well as Derek Hall from our ISO consultants, Blackmores, on the exceptionally quick and professional way we were able to achieve this important certification.”
