All Infineum global production sites now ISO 14001 certified
All Infineum’s global manufacturing sites now have ISO 14001 certification after five more were awarded the sought-after standard for their environmental management systems.
ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system. It maps out a framework that a company or organization can follow to set up an effective environmental management system.
Designed for any type of organization, regardless of its activity or sector, it can provide assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved.
“This significant milestone reassures customers and society that we have world-class environmental systems in place, with the right policies and processes to meet our stakeholders’ environmental expectations,” Infineum, the UK-based leading global additive manufacturer said. The company is a joint venture between ExxonMobil and Shell, carved out of their respective additive businesses.
“Infineum’s overarching purpose is to ‘create a sustainable future through innovative chemistry’, so sustainability and our commitment to protect the environment sit at the core of our operations,” said Sustainability Manager Doug Hill.
“Despite the additional challenges of Covid-19, this important accreditation has now been implemented across all our manufacturing sites worldwide. It will further enhance our strong Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) systems as we continuously seek resource efficiencies and decarbonisation in our operations. It was only possible thanks to superb employee collaboration and sharing of best practice across sites,” he said.
Infineum has also signed the Responsible Care Global Charter, which is a global unifying chemical industry commitment to the safe management and handling of chemicals throughout their life cycle.
Becoming a signatory allows us to proactively support safe chemical management, influence our business partners, strengthen chemical management systems globally and safeguard our employees and the environment, Infineum said.
