CBC is committed to an effective environmental policy that helps us manage and reduce our impact on the world around us. CBC is proud to announce that we have achieved ISO 14001 certification.
As an ISO 14001 certified manufacturer, CBC Steel Buildings is dedicated to protecting our environment and reducing waste. Every CBC teammate is responsible for environmental protection. In addition, our contractors, vendors, and suppliers are required to comply with applicable environmental laws.
What Is ISO 14001?
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 is a standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS) that applies to all businesses, regardless of size, location, or income. The standard aims to continually reduce the environmental footprint of a business and to decrease the pollution and waste a business produces.
A Rigorous Process
A company saying it is committed to environmental and sustainable concepts is one thing. Achieving ISO 14001 certification it is quite another.
In order for an organization to be awarded an ISO 14001 certificate, an external accredited audit firm must audit it. For CBC, this rigorous, demanding process took a full year and included education and training for every team member.
A large amount of time and dedication was invested to ensure that we would achieve our goal. The process was challenging, to say the least, but an extremely worthwhile investment as it taught us how to better use resources and protect the environment.
