Sponsored by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO14001:2004 provides a framework for identifying and tracking regulatory compliance issues related to doing business. It starts with the establishment of an Environmental Policy which declares the organization’s stand on pollution. Environmental aspects (hazards) and impacts (risks) are then identified. Policies are written to support a system which manages and mitigates these hazards and risks on an ongoing basis. A well designed environmental management system (EMS) is a tool enabling EPC to systematically control its environmental performance.
What this means to you:
By way of its EMS, EPC…
• Controls the safe reuse and recycling of electronic equipment and components.
• Reduces pollution and risk to the environment and public health.
• Demonstrates compliance with both domestic and international laws.
