Belco maintains 14001 certification

Belco has maintained its ISO 14001 certification following an audit of its environmental management systems (EMS).

The electricity company was the first ISO 14001 certified organisation in Bermuda, and has committed to continually improve the performance of its EMS.

Belco voluntarily established an EMS in 2009 and earned certification in 2010 by Certech Registration Inc of Canada. Belco’s EMS must pass another annual surveillance audit in 2012, and then a second registration audit in 2013 to maintain its certification until 2016.

Belco’s EMS enhances the company’s ability to anticipate, identify and manage its interactions with the environment and control the impacts of its activities, products and services, including those in its offices, Central Plant and for crews working in the field.

The EMS requirements go over and above compliance with Bermuda’s environmental laws and regulations.
