TigerTurf said the certification has come six months after it made the decision to enhance its sustainability credentials.

ISO14001 is a globally recognised standard that identifies environmental performance by mapping out a framework that companies can follow to set up an effective Environmental Management System.

Through the development of its Environmental Policy and the supporting system itself, TigerTurf has reviewed its business activities to identify any associated impact on the environment, the company said.

Through this, TigerTurf has determined a comprehensive range of objectives and operational controls to effectively manage and reduce environmental risk whilst remaining fully compliant with all relevant legislation.

The business has already further improved its waste management arrangements by introducing an additional waste stream to divert an additional 28 per cent from landfill into recycling, and will now turn its attention to reviewing the business’s energy supply and use.

TigerTurf UK managing director Paul Langford said: "As an industry, synthetic turf manufacturers are faced with challenges when attempting to improve environmental performance. We’ve made the issue a real priority and are pleased to now have a clear sense of our environmental performance through ISO14001. Also a plan is in place to consistently monitor and measure our business activities to improve our green credentials."
