Looking after our Environment

 

Veracity is accredited to ISO14001:2004 (Certificate Number EN1281) and is a market leader in supplying environmentally friendly products, primarily to the network video surveillance markets; the extent to which we design this into our portfolio is measured as one of our Top Level Company KPIs. Our flagship products listed below are all, in their own way, reducing the amount of energy consumed by their equivalents in the marketplace.

ENVIRONMENTAL STATEMENT

 

Veracity UK operates a SHEQ (combined Quality; Health & Safety; and Environmental) management system and is certified to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004. We are committed to protecting the environment and preserving the earth’s natural resources through the development of extended lifecycle products, which consume significantly less energy than their competitors. Veracity’s environmental initiatives, such as “keep the coax” allow our customers to retain large, legacy-cabled networks in situations where a total replacement of infrastructure would otherwise be required. Also, Veracity’s patented COLDSTORE video surveillance storage solution allows organisations to retain video for extended periods whilst at the same time achieving significant power savings, through energy efficiency of the product / significantly reduced requirements for air-conditioning & uninterruptable power supply use/ extended life-cycles for hard drives (approximately four times longer than those used in comparative RAID systems).

Veracity UK’s Environmental Policy addresses our situation with respect to: interested parties, legislation, stakeholder compliance obligations, as well as our commitment to environmental risk reduction and continual improvement. This policy is available upon request, as are: Veracity’s definition of scope of Environmental Management System, our list of interested parties and copies of our ISO certificates.

Veracity UK manages product sourcing and our supply-chain to ensure that: SVHC (substances of very high concern); ROHS (restriction of hazardous substances); REACH (registration, evaluation, authorisation & restriction of hazardous substances); and minerals from conflict zones are all prevented from entering our product range.

As a member of a WEEE producer compliance scheme, Veracity fulfils its environmental obligations including responsibility for re-cycling end-of-life product and operating a “take back scheme” (details of which are available upon request). Veracity uses recycled packaging wherever possible, places environmental impact at the forefront of policy decisions and to improve environmental performance even further, we are currently exploring possibilities within the circular economy Veracity meets all terms of the UK Government’s Authorised Economic Operator statute of 2012 and manages its business and supply chain in compliance with the Modern Slavery Act of 2015.
