All Heidelberg production and development locations have passed its recertification to new environmental management system standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.
Heidelberg says this means that all production and development locations worldwide together with their marketing, product management, development, procurement, production and service functions as well as their support processes along the entire value chain have been successfully recertified.
Richard Timson, managing director, Heidelberg ANZ says, “It is a demonstration that the company is concerned with the environment, and sustainability. That will continue on as long as there is a need to save energy and look out for the environment.”
The company says certification to the international ISO standards has been part of Heidelberg’s quality and environmental policy for over 20 years. Heidelberg’s goal is to continuously improve all processes related to quality and the environment. This commitment is insisted upon and appropriately supported by the management.
To ensure that Heidelberg remains the benchmark for performance, the preferred partner for its customers and a model, sustainable company in the future also, our own standards exceed the requirements of the ISO standards.
The audit was carried out by company DQS (German Organization for the Certification of Management Systems), which for its part is authorised by the national accreditation body DAkkS GmbH (German Accreditation Body) in Berlin.
Rainer Hundsdörfer, CEO of Heidelberg says, “With the ISO recertification for our quality and environmental management systems, we are emphasising our high standards in these areas. We see the implementation of the quality and environmental management systems as forward-looking guarantees for the continuous improvement of products and services for our customers and of harmony with the environment.”
