BELCO Maintains ISO 14001 Certification

July 8, 2019

BELCO has successfully maintained its certification to the ISO 14001:2015 Standard for Environmental Management Systems.

The International Organization for Standardization, known as ISO, publishes International Standards developed by international experts covering nearly all industries around the world. ISO, which is based out of Switzerland, has members from 161 countries.

ISO 14001:2015 is the International Standard for environmental management systems. In addition to meeting legal obligations, the Standard helps BELCO to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste, and consistently manage its environmental responsibilities.

BELCO first became ISO 14001 certified in 2010. The 2015 revision of the standard included several new requirements, which BELCO was able to meet within the three-year transition period, thereby maintaining its certification.

“We are extremely proud to have maintained our ISO 14001 certification,” remarked Jan Locke, Ascendant Group Occupational Health, Safety and Environment [OHSE] System Coordinator. “BELCO is committed to environmental sustainability and this updated certification demonstrates how our environmental management system has become embedded in our corporate culture.”

Dr. Locke continued, “There are many interested parties where BELCO is concerned. The 14001:2015 Standard helps us to meet the expectations of our employees, customers, shareholders, and industry stakeholders.”
