Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems met the stringent requirements of the International Organisation for Standardisation, which specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organisation can use to enhance its environmental performance.
The company has successfully achieved the international standard on environmental management, ISO 14001, after being assessed on the production, delivery and servicing of its market-leading cutting systems. The ISO 14001:2015 accreditation applies to the environmental aspects of Kongsberg PCS’ business.
‘Our mission as a business is to fuse technology and creativity to enable our customers to produce the highest quality products faster, safer, and more efficiently, maximising their potential for creativity, sustainability and profitability,’ said Stuart Fox, Kongsberg PCS President and CEO. ‘Achieving ISO 14001 is evidence that as an organisation we are seeking to manage our environmental responsibilities in a systematic manner that contributes to the environmental pillar of sustainability.’
The ISO 14001:2015 standard was developed to help an organisation achieve the intended outcomes of its environmental management system, which provides value for the environment, the organisation itself and other interested parties such as customers.
‘The standard is consistent with our own environmental policy,’ added Fox. ‘We are delighted to have successfully demonstrated that our environmental management system ensures the production, delivery and servicing of our cutting systems delivers enhanced environmental performance, fulfills all compliance obligations and helps our business and our customers to achieve environmental objectives.’
