Cemex USA has announced that its cement plant in Clinchfield, Georgia, has earned the ISO 14001:2015 Certification for its environmental management system (EMS).
The International Organization of Standardization (ISO) developed ISO 14001:2015 as a standard of processes for organizations to use when setting up, improving or maintaining their environmental management systems to follow established environmental policies and requirements.
The guidelines are designed to help organizations improve efficiency, reduce waste, improve overall environmental impact and manage environmental obligations.
Ignacio Madridejos, Cemex USA president, says: “An effective environmental management system can help our operations build on their successes while following well-established standards.”
Dr. Hugo Bolio, Cemex USA executive vice president – cement operations & technology, says: “At all our cement plants, our teams work together to operate responsibly, striving to perform better than environmental standards as we are building a better future.”
