Wiremold/Legrand Attains ISO Environmental Registration
Legrand North America, including Wiremold/Legrand, has obtained corporate registration of its Environmental Management System to the ISO 14001 international standard. ISO 14001 is the specification for establishing an environmental policy, determining environmental aspects and impacts of products/activities/services, planning environmental objectives and measurable targets, implementation and operation of programs to meet objectives and targets, checking and corrective action, and management review.
Registration to ISO 14001 demonstrates Wiremold/Legrand's commitment to protect the environment while conducting its manufacturing operations and is in alignment with Legrand’s global environmental leadership. According to Larry Richards, Director of Quality, "Our environmental management system reduces the cost of waste management, decreases consumption of energy and materials, lowers distribution costs, and provides a framework for continual improvement of environmental performance."
The Wiremold/Legrand site in West Hartford, Conn., was among the first Legrand North America facilities to implement the ISO 14001 requirements.
