Belco has maintained an environmental management systems certification.
The ISO 14001:2015 standard, set by the Swiss-based International Organisation for Standardisation, helps Belco to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste, and consistently manage its environmental responsibilities, the utility said.
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,” Jan Locke, Ascendant Group’s occupational health, safety and environment system co-ordinator. “Belco is committed to environmental sustainability and this updated certification demonstrates how our environmental management system has become embedded in our corporate culture.”
The standard “helps us to meet the expectations of our employees, customers, shareholders, and industry stakeholders”, Dr Locke added.
