Our commitment to quality, environmental management and social responsibility is deeply established in the DNA of SOURCE as well as in our Credo, and has been constantly demonstrated throughout various endeavors and actions undertaken by SOURCE. The latest commitment: ISO 14001 Certification.
As part of our sincere commitment we have taken upon ourselves a commitment to obtain a formal accreditation for ISO 14001 standards. ISO 14001 is a family of standards related to environmental management that exists to help organizations minimize how their operations negatively affect the environment (i.e. cause adverse changes to air, water, or land); comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements, and continually improve in the above.
ISO 14001 is similar to ISO 9001 quality management in that both pertain to the process of how a product is produced, rather than to the product itself. As with ISO 9001, certification is performed by third-party organizations rather than being awarded by ISO directly. In addition to these actions, we are constantly engaged in reducing the negative affects of our products themselves.
The requirements of ISO 14001 are an integral part of the European Union‘s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS). EMAS‘s structure and material requirements are more demanding, mainly concerning performance improvement, legal compliance, and reporting duties. Implementing and maintaining ISO 14001 requires a constant investment that we are happy to make in order to demonstrate our values and obtain constant improvement – to which we will continue to be committed to.
