Sligro awarded certification for environmental management systems

Sligro Food Group Nederland has been awarded the ISO 14001:2015 certificate for the receipt, storage and transport of food and non-food products. When it comes to environmental management systems, ISO 14001:2015 is the international standard.

ISO standard 14001:2015 is geared towards managing and improving environmental performance, both internally within the organisation and across the entire supply chain. The aim is to keep on implementing improvements in the area of the environment and sustainable business practices. Certification under this ISO standard is based on an assessment of an organisation’s current environmental policy, environmental aspects relevant to the organisation, the organisation’s energy efficiency with a view to cutting carbon emissions, and measures the organisation is taking to control or reduce carbon emissions.
Larger companies and governments in particular often stipulate certification as a precondition for tendering for their contracts.
