SANTA CLARA, Calif., November 10, 2011 — Renesas Electronics America Inc. today announced that the environmental management system (EMS) implemented at its headquarters facility in Santa Clara, California, has been certified by UL DQS, Inc. for conformance with the ISO 14001:2004 environmental standard.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies. The International Environmental Management System Standard (ISO 14001) developed by ISO is the recognized standard for environmental management, as well as a benchmark for environmental excellence.
In implementing an EMS, Renesas Electronics America strengthened its commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) by developing environmental management policies and procedures dedicated to protecting the environment and conserving the earth’s natural resources. The objectives for the period were to gain certification from ISO for the implementation of an EMS, and expand the company’s environmental education through online training and web-based communication covering topics including recycling and the reduction of waste to landfill.
"I am proud that our company achieved this result, which reflects positively on the fundamental integrity of our operational processes and procedures," said Daniel Mahoney, president and CEO.
