ISO 14001 Compliance Statement
Environmental Management System
In response to the growing need to identify and reduce the impact our products and services have on the environment, Kingston's management team has committed to the investment and implementation of Environmental Management Systems for each of our worldwide manufacturing sites.
These systems are modelled to be in compliance with the ISO 14001 standard, which assists companies in the creation and maintenance of an Environmental Management System.
Certification to the ISO 14001 standard demonstrates Kingston's commitment to proactively addressing our impact on the global environment.
ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised standard for Environmental Management Systems.
The ISO 14001 standard seeks to synchronise valuable environmental principles and practices with the goal of helping companies determine the environmental issues associated with their activities and manage them successfully.
While the standard does not contain specific performance requirements, it does include requirements for commitment to the prevention of pollution, as well as compliance with regulatory requirements.
More importantly, it recognises a company’s positive impact on the environment, achieved through managed performance and continual improvement.
Kingston adheres to all local, regional and national regulatory requirements regarding our environmental practices.
