TOPEKA, KS | February 5, 2010 – Underscoring its reputation as an environmentally conscious company, Asset LifeCycle, today announced that it has received ISO 14001:2004 Certification.
ALC’S environmental system was audited and certified by a leading independent registrar that is fully accredited by the American National Accreditation Body (ANAB).
ALC is leading the way for responsible recycling as one of the first electronics recycling companies in Kansas to achieve the ISO 14001:2004 accreditation.
The ISO 14001:2004 Standard is an internationally accepted specification for environmental management systems created by the International Organization for Standardization to help organizations minimize how their operations affect the environment and comply with related laws, regulations and requirements.
As part of the efforts to achieve this well-recognized certification, Asset LifeCycle has established its own Environmental Management System (EMS) to ensure that the Company's activities, products and services have minimal impact on or risk to the environment. ALC’s EMS helps monitor and improve upon a number of areas that touch on the environment, such as energy efficiency, resource conservation, waste management, chemical control, scrap recycling and disaster recovery.
This certification puts ALC at the forefront of e-waste compliance and ensures efficient and regulated electronics recycling/processing to benefit Kansas, the local community, clients located throughout the nation, and the environment.
"ALC is a company devoted to the environment and sustainability”
“We are confident ALC’s environmental programs and processes will continue to differentiate us as a sustainability leader in a marketplace that is becoming greener and more demanding each and every day” says Bill Fowle, CMO/CTO. “This certification is more than an acknowledgement of efforts made in the name of concern for the environment. Achieving this rigorous international standard tells our clients, strategic partners, prospects, and downstream vendors that we are committed to protecting the environment and encourage them to do the same.”
