CMZ has reached ISO 14001:2015 certification for its Environmental Management System.
The important result defines our strong commitment to implementing internal processes focused on protecting the environment, with a view to continuous improvement and in full compliance with national regulations.
ISO 14001:2015 certification, issued by the BUREAU VERITAS, involves all our company areas.
■ R&D AND ENGINEERING in order to: improve performances on CMZ products with a new boost which takes in consideration the environmental design inputs systematically; reduce energy consumption; actively contribute to the optimal management of “product end-life” by our Customers; acquire full awareness about environmental impacts for our new products throughout all their life-cycle.
■ PROCUREMENT with a new approach in managing our Suppliers by requiring: a much higher involvement in the implementation of the guidelines as settled by environmental regulations; the sharing of operative results (for instance, progressively better environmental data); the introduction of improving programs and compliance to regulations (about raw material, emissions, pollutants).
■ PRODUCTION to significantly reduce our power consumption, emissions and waste in components assembly, semi-finished products storage, and products testing.
■ AFTER SALE SERVICE to find zero-environmental-impact solutions as much as possible, in the repairing of electronic boards and electronic systems.
Through environmental awareness, we promote efficient, sustainable and innovative business management and monitoring practices daily based on the respect for environment and our territory, as well as on energy saving. We also aim to consolidate our commercial presence, by increasing CMZ brand reputation in current markets and in new markets that we’ll soon approach.
ISO 14001 (Environment) and ISO 9001 (Quality) certifications set up a virtuous Integrated Management System with effects in terms of growth, competitiveness and market positioning. Our commitment is tangible and the certification reached today is just the first step of a path that, from now on, will inspire and lead our company’s choices towards the creation of new value, recognized by markets and stakeholders.
CMZ makes use of renewable energy since 2011 through self-production of electricity generated by the company’s photovoltaic system, which currently satisfies half of internal electricity need: from its installation, CMZ has cut down over 1,000 tons of CO2. ISO14001 certification is part of a sustainability process already started in the company years ago, that CMZ now intends to strengthen making it even stronger and structured.
