Certifications. Labels and Awards:

ISO 14001

The ISO 14000 environmental management standards exist to help organizations minimize how their operations negatively affect the environment (cause adverse changes to air, water, or land) and comply with applicable laws and regulations. The standards pertain mainly to the process of how the product is made rather than the product itself. Certification is performed and awarded by an independent third-party organization rather than ISO directly.
