The Environmental Management System is the set of processes, procedures, instruments, and models that an organisation implements and formally applies to comply with the requirements of applicable legislation
. Organisations seeking and obtaining quality certification make a formal commitment to limiting both the direct effects on the environment (of their operations) and also any indirect effects (environmental issues they can exert a degree of influence on), reducing emissions, promoting waste recovery and recycling, more efficient use of resources and best environmental practices. The priority of quality-certified organisations is in fact to adopt a policy to continuously improve their environmental performance. Caleffi
has always been aware that human and industrial activities, including those of the company itself, have repercussions on the surrounding environment, and therefore made the voluntary decision to adopt an Environmental Management System which was certified to UNI EN ISO 14001:2004 last June
. This system dictates how the company monitors and aims to continuously improve its environmental performance, the main objective being to prevent and reduce the impact of the activities it exercises.
The following certification has been achieved:
- ICIM certification is a reliable attestation of the ability of Caleffi's Environmental Management System to meet the specific requirements and fulfil the predefined objectives;
- IQNET certification, required by "The International Certification Network", demonstrates the equivalence of the certifications issued by its members and assures the certified quality systems of organisations are recognized internationally thereby favouring transparency in international trade.
