LEWA achieves the treble: certificates for quality, work safety and environmental management

After LEWA has already been certified for quality management (ISO 9001) and occupational health and safety (OHSAS 18001: 2007) in recent years, LEWA now obtains a certificate for a successful environmental management system according to ISO 14001:2004.

In an audit, proof has been furnished that LEWA complies with all requirements of the ISO standard. A certification document according to EMAS III will be issued. The Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (“EMAS”) has been developed by the European Community to support companies which want to improve their environmental performance. EMAS-certified companies undertake to publish an environmental report giving an overview of their present and planned environmental activities, as well as accurate data on resource and energy consumption, emissions and waste.

With the EMAS certification, LEWA finally achieves the “treble”: LEWA's outstanding quality, occupational health as well as environmental management are now officially recognized and confirmed. LEWA takes social responsibility and is committed to a sustainable corporate culture. The certificate is a further step on the path of implementing the company’s philosophy of continuously optimizing internal processes.
