HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., June 1, 2009 – The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] announced today that its Anaheim-Huntington Beach site in California has earned International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 certification, a global benchmark of an organization's commitment to understand and continuously improve its environmental performance.
The facility's more than 7,500 employees support military radio and communications programs, missile defense, advanced combat systems, advanced information systems, and space exploration, among other activities.
Independent auditors from Det Norske Veritas (DNV), an accredited certification body of quality, environmental and safety management systems, audited the Anaheim-Huntington Beach site April 20-23 to ensure that an established environmental management system exists and that employees understand their roles in protecting the environment.
“Achieving ISO 14001 certification reinforces our commitment to environmental excellence,” said Anaheim-Huntington Beach Site Executive and C3 Networks Vice President/General Manager Nan Bouchard. “This global standard demonstrates our commitment to reducing pollution and waste, increasing recycling rates and improving energy efficiency. It also ensures our communities and our customers know that we’re doing our part to protect the environment.”
The auditors commended the Anaheim-Huntington Beach site for its environmental training programs and its compliance with monitoring and recordkeeping processes.
Boeing last year successfully expanded ISO 14001 certification to all of its major manufacturing facilities around the world, including sites in the United States, Canada and Australia.
The Boeing Company is committed to pioneering environmentally progressive technology and relentlessly reducing its environmental footprint. Boeing has set aggressive targets to increase solid-waste-recycling rates and energy efficiency by 25 percent and to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions intensity by 25 percent at its major manufacturing facilities by 2012, with a comparable goal for hazardous-waste reduction.
