EMS system

Environmental Management System. This is a system that is designed to protect the natural environment.

ISO 14 001

The Company’s Board of Directors recognised the importance of ecological behaviour requirements for the future existence of the company; and therefore approved the concept of Environmental Management, at its' meeting in November 1999. Certification to ISO 14 001 has subsequently been achieved.

In view of the growing demand for complex solutions, preparation was commenced for the implementation of environmental management within the company according to the requirements of ISO 14 000, with certification expected in the first quarter of 2000.
