Goldsmith and Eggleton, a manufacturer of black masterbatches and reprocessed polymers, has earned registration of its Environmental Management System under the International Standards Organization (ISO) 14001:2004 program.
The ISO 14001:2004 program specifies requirements for an environmental management system which can be integrated with other management plans to assist organizations in achieving environmental and economic goals.
Company officials said the ISO 14001:2004 program was embraced to help achieve environmental objectives. “No program replaces operating responsibility and we are committed to resolving regulatory issues,” said G&E Management Representative, Paul Alic. “The ISO 14001:2004 program is a valuable management tool for addressing concerns raised about environmental practices at our Wadsworth facility.”
Mike Gospodinsky, President of Quality Innovations, advised G&E on program development and implementation. “There is an increased awareness of what can be done to improve the environment at the company since beginning the ISO 14001:2004 program, which over time will result in improved environmental performance,” stated Gospodinsky.
Incorporating the ISO standards in an environmental management system provides the company an excellent benchmark and third-party accountability for performance,” Alic added. The registration was awarded by Smithers Quality Assessments, globally recognized for ISO 14001:2004 auditing. G&E also is registered under the ISO 9001:2008 program for product quality control.
