Environmental Management

EMS Policy
We have made a commitment to protect the environment through implementing an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS). We are currently third party certified to the ISO 14001:2015 Standard in the Operations and Maintenance divisions for the Collections and Distributions Systems, the Environmental Management Department and the Engineering Department. The full scope of the EMS can be found here.

ISO 14001 is a voluntary standard that was developed by the International Organization for Standardization, which is a group of representatives from approximately 40 countries that work together to develop standards such as this one for EMS development and implementation. This standard provides a framework for EMS development and is based on a Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) Model.
