ISO 14001 : 2004 certification

COLORNO, Italy – July 22nd, 2014 – Transfer Oil S.p.A, more than 20 years ago, was one of the first companies in its sector to achieve certification of its Quality Management System in accordance with the internationally recognised standard ISO 9001. Some months ago, with awareness that environment and environmental sustainability are fundamental core values for both society and for the future expansion of our company, Transfer Oil has strived for, and achieved, another important goal, the certification of our Environmental Management System in accordance with the internationally recognised environmental standard ISO 14001.

For the achievement of this certification of the Environmental Management System, Transfer Oil has committed to, worked towards, and actively pursued, the development and expansion of its management system in order to facilitate the management tools and techniques that enable us to control the environmental footprint of the company and to minimize the environmental impact, always having as our goal the minimisation and prevention of pollution. In addition to meeting the relevant requirements of ISO 14001, there is also compliance with the laws and regulations in force relating to the environment. This involves the internal personnel and external contacts of the company (such as customers, suppliers, and local institutions) and the increasing growth of a sense of responsibility towards the environment, raised awareness for the proper management of resources, optimization and reduction of energy consumption and water usage, and the identification, separation and proper disposal of waste.

Compliance with the international specification ISO 14001, and achieving certification, are not legal requirements but are a very significant and voluntary step that Transfer Oil has decided to undertake because of the continuing growth and development of the company together with the introduction of new and modern technology which must be combined with respect for the environment and sustainability in which we all believe, and which has always set us apart.

This commitment, respect and protection of the environment are a guarantee of added value to services and products that Transfer Oil SpA proudly offers and exports all over the world.
