Greenworld Electronics wins two national awards

On-site electronic data destruction and ethical IT asset disposal company Greenworld Electronics is celebrating being awarded ISO 27001: 2013 for information security management.

The transition to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 builds on Greenworld’s existing ISO 27001:2005, ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management, ISO 14001:2004 for Environmental Management and BS OHSAS 18001: 2007 for Occupational Health & Safety Management accreditations to demonstrate Greenworld’s ability to deliver a secure and energy efficient environment for its clients.

The new, more stringent accreditation for information security, ISO 27001:2013 aligns with the principles of ISO 31000 risk management standard and is UK accredited.

Commenting on gaining ISO 27001:2013 accreditation, David Aitken, Managing Director, said: "For many Greenworld clients, the selection of our services is strongly influenced by the levels of security we offer. Our successful transition to the new information security standard further supports that criterion with a focus on management of risks for our clients’ data.

"Transition to the new standard further supports the security standards required by our clients providing a process driven approach to information security – and including clear requirements to consider all interested parties and their individual requirements relevant to information security.

Greenworld Electronics was also successful in the recent Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Tender for Asset Disposals and recently received the award letter confirming its place on the RM 1058 national UK Framework Agreement which means any public sector organisation can now place purchase orders with Greenworld for data destruction and redundant IT asset disposal services to the stringent UK CESG and WEEE legislation without having to enter into time consuming and costly Tendering procedures.
