Ardagh Group's beverage can manufacturing facilities in Fairfield, California, and Fremont, Ohio, and its food can manufacturing facility in Reno, Nevada, USA have achieved International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) 14001:2015 certification.
ISO 14001:2015 is the most updated version and focuses on environmental management systems and performance. It assists companies in developing a management system that aligns business strategies and environmental objectives. The detailed certification process provides the framework to help organisations minimise their environmental impact, reduce its carbon footprint, better comply with applicable laws and regulations, and stay on a course of continuous improvement.
“This certification illustrates our company’s commitment to setting new standards of excellence across quality, sustainability and customer satisfaction,” said Claude Marbach, CEO, Ardagh Metal – North America. “This accomplishment is indicative of our commitment to providing customers the best in packaging solutions at the highest quality, complete with a strong sustainability position that in turn supports customer’s environmental objectives.”
Ardagh’s ISO 14001:2015 certifications support an already-strong quality and environmental position inherent in the product the company makes at the Fairfield, Fremont and Reno facilities. Metal beverage and food cans are recycled at the highest rate of any other package option. Cans also deliver optimum filling as well as distribution and retail display economics.
Plans for additional Metal – North America plants to become ISO 14001 certified are underway with teams engaged in the process across numerous locations.
