ARABELLA COUNTRY ESTATE RE-AWARDED THEIR FULL ISO 14001 CERTIFICATION

Arabella Country Estate, home to Fynbos and fine living, located on the shores of the Bot River Lagoon surrounding the magnificent World Heritage Nature Reserve, has recently been re-certified with their full ISO 14001 compliance certificate, as announced by Dirk Uys, estate manager. The re-certification shows the Estate’s continual adherence to the highest standard of environmental management.

 

ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps to improve the environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste as well as identify, manage, monitor and control environmental issues in a “holistic” manner. Like all ISO management system standards, ISO 14001 includes the need for continual improvement of an organization’s systems and approach to environmental concerns.

 

Aspects of the Estate’s management that have been assessed include water supply via boreholes and a water purification plant, wastewater treatment and re-use, conservation of the environment(specifically indigenous vegetation), energy management/minimization, refuse compaction/recycling and health & safety. Uys says “In support of our Vision, these aspects are managed by means of a well-documented system and procedures that forms part of the day to day operational management by the respective Departments and all stakeholders of the Estate”.
