For Immediate Release
Siemon Achieves ISO 14001:2015 Recertification
December 2, 2016. Watertown, CT - Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, today announced that it has achieved certification to the latest revision of the ISO 14001 environmental management standards by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA).
Intended for use by organizations seeking to manage its environmental responsibilities in a systematic manner that contributes to the environmental pillar of sustainability, the ISO 14001 standard specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organization can use to continually improve its environmental performance. New ISO 14001:2015 requirements include proactive environmental initiatives, enhanced performance benchmarks and lifecycle thinking.
"From our clean solar energy and zero landfill status, to our 179% carbon negative footprint achieved across all operations, we have a long standing commitment to environmental stewardship," explains Lou Beres, Director of Continuous Improvement for Siemon "With systems already in place to understand and align our processes with environmental developments, organizational culture and changing societal needs, achieving this latest milestone required only slight refining of some practices and updated documentation."
The new ISO 14001:2015 standard replaces previous editions, and companies looking to achieve recertification have three years to comply. While many are still in the process of working toward recertification, a very small percentage of certified companies have passed recertification to the 2015 revision of the standard by LRQA. Siemon is proud to be one of the few and one of the first to achieve this milestone.
