Environmental sustainability is no longer just the right thing to do. Like innovative thinking and a commitment to quality, it is woven into our processes. Organizations across all industries have systems in place to control their environmental impact. It has a positive effect on employees, the brand, surrounding communities and certainly generations to come.
In that spirit, HellermannTyton adheres to strict environmental standards and maintains ISO 14001 certification in its major North American locations. An EMS is a continuous cycle of planning, implementing, reviewing and improving the processes and actions that an organization undertakes to meet its environmental obligations. HellermannTyton’s ISO 14001 certification has been active since 2002.
ISO 14000 represents a series of international EMS standards. ISO 14001 is often seen as the cornerstone standard of the ISO 14000 series. In addition to being the best known, it is the only ISO 14000 standard that can be certified by an external, third-party authority. It does not itself state specific environmental performance criteria. The ISO 14001 standard applies to any organization that wishes to:
Implement, maintain and improve an EMS.
Ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations.
Assure on-going EMS validity through continuous improvement to meet changing environmental policies and concerns.
Demonstrate EMS conformance through monitoring, measurement and assessment.
Seek certification of its EMS by an external third-party organization.
