Environmental Policy – ISO 14001

Tratos’ EMS (Environmental Management System) procedures control the significant environmental aspects of the company’s manufacturing sites at Knowsley in the UK and Pieve Santo Stefano and Catania in Italy. The EMS policy is subject to periodic review and systematic internal and external auditing. Management Review Meetings take place at least annually and, on the basis of these meetings, new commitments, including legislative compliance and continuous improvement in environmental performance, are set.

It is Tratos’ belief that ethical business conduct is a condition of a company’s success. Tratos already has a strong environmental policy in place, the company, for instance, has been using clean renewable energy from its own hydroelectric plant since 1980. However, it is constantly working closely with customers and suppliers to find environmentally friendly solutions such as greener cable solutions. Indeed, some of the Tratos cables are made without halogens and the Tratos-Green cable is made using purely hydroelectric energy. 

The Tratos’ environmental management system described above is based on the ISO 14001 standard. This standard specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organization can use to enhance its environmental performance. Tratos uses this standard to cover the production, purchase of raw materials, design and final tests of its cables. 

The ISO 14001 has been developed by ISO in the attempt to support the development of goals 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9,12,13,14,15 of the United Nations. Therefore, by being granted this standard and by applying such standard to its daily operations, Tratos is giving its contribution to the development of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. 

Tratos has been audited by two independent, international authorities, BSI (UK) and AENOR-IQNET (E), which approved the company’s procedures in accordance with ISO 14001.
