We earned ISO 14001 certification for our environmental management system and BS OHSAS 18001 certification for our occupational health and safety management system. The validity for both certifications was extended in May 2015 for an additional year in accordance with a successful observation audit.
These certifications cover all of the company’s European facilities. They were issued by IQNet, an international certification network, after an extensive audit of our operations – including:
- production, engineering, laboratory and administrative areas
- supply chain management
- packaging development
- work safety procedures
- emergency management
- fire prevention activities
- waste management
The superior results, compared to similar audits at other companies, provide valuable feedback to our entire company on the long-term value of thoughtful environmental management, healthy working conditions, economic use of resources, and innovative waste recycling programs.
