Belco renews environmental approval

Belco has once again met an international standard for its environmental management systems, the power company announced.

The International Organisation for Standardisation, based in Switzerland, publishes international standards for industries worldwide.

The ISO, which has members from 161 countries, adopted tighter requirements in 2015 for its ISO 14001 standard.

In addition to meeting legal obligations, the standard helps Belco to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste, and manage its environmental responsibilities.

Belco was able to meet within the three-year transition period. The utility was first certified for the standard in 2010.

Jan Locke, Ascendant Group’s occupational health, safety and environment system coordinator, said the company was “extremely proud” to have maintained its certification.

She added: “Belco is committed to environmental sustainability and this updated certification demonstrates how our environmental management system has become embedded in our corporate culture.

“There are many interested parties where Belco is concerned. The 14001:2015 Standard helps us to meet the expectations of our employees, customers, shareholders, and industry stakeholders.”
