Oshkosh Airport Products, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation company, receives the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001:2015 Environmental Management Certification for its facility located at Neenah, Wisconsin.
By obtaining the certification, Oshkosh Airport Products has demonstrated a strong commitment to performance, implementation of a world-class environmental management system, and completion of a rigorous third-party evaluation.
Rigorous Certification Process
The ISO 14000 family of voluntary standards provide tools for companies and organizations looking to manage their environmental responsibilities. Global organizations have adopted this systematic approach to environmental management by implementing programs and systems with the goal of increased sustainability.
Having definitive standards outlined and practices put into place has helped the current team
As part of the rigorous certification process, Oshkosh Airport Products evaluated its environmental impact in areas including water, electricity, material usage, waste reduction, and recycling practices. Having definitive standards outlined and practices put into place has helped the current team, and those that will join in the future, have access to the best tools needed to improve efficiencies and meet goals.
Improved Resource Efficiency
“Obtaining the ISO 14001 certificate was an outstanding effort by all Oshkosh Airport Product’s Neenah-based team members,” said Erik Lampe, Oshkosh Airport Products vice president and general manager. “As a global company, we are committed to being environmental stewards and understand this certification is not only important to us, but to our customers and the world in which we live.”
Nearly 88 percent of the material used, but not sold, by Oshkosh Airport Product’s Neenah facility is reused and recycled. The company has aimed to reach 90 percent and the ISO 14001 certification practices are a critical step in reaching this goal. Additionally, many companies that obtain ISO 14001 certification experience improved resource efficiency, waste reduction, cost reduction, increased business opportunities, improved overall environmental impact and more.
