Our business continues to evolve and grow in complexity - in turn, adding complexity to our sustainability initiatives. In FY20, we continued to prepare 23 manufacturing sites that make products for markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for ISO environmental and safety certification. To date we have been ISO 14001 and 45001 certified in 4 of our manufacturing plants.
We are pursuing both ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certification simultaneously. ISO 14001 is the international standard for implementing an Environmental Management System (EMS); it maps out a framework that organizations can follow to set up an effective EMS. ISO 45001 is similar to ISO 14001 but focuses on managing occupational health and safety concerns, including job hazards, regulatory requirements and potential emergencies.
