Dresser Wayne Demonstrates Commitment to Green Initiatives with ISO 14001:2004 Certification
AUSTIN, TX January 7, 2009 – Dresser Wayne, a global innovator of retail fuel dispensers and technologies, has reached another milestone in its ongoing plan to minimize environmental impact and to incorporate more green practices into its operations around the world. The company has received ISO 14001:2004 certification for its Austin, Texas operation from Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), a third party registrar for quality and environmental management systems. Dresser Wayne has also earned ISO 14001:2004 certifications for its manufacturing sites in Brazil and Italy.
ISO 14001 certification recognizes a company’s control of its impact on the environment. According to the certification standards, the organization must identify all potential environmental influences and associated risks. Another criterion is actively minimizing impact as well as maintaining an emphasis on continual improvement. Only those companies with excellent environmental programs qualify for this globally-recognized certification.
“Dresser Wayne has been a technology leader in our industry for more than 100 years. As a global leader in retail fuel dispensing we are committed to being at the forefront of environmental stewardship in our industry” states Neil Thomas, Dresser Wayne Global President. “Our goal is to have all operations ISO 14001:2004 certified by the end of 2009”.
Dresser Wayne has a comprehensive approach to environmental integrity that spans all levels of the organization. One of the four pillars of the company’s green commitment is resource conservation. Dresser Wayne seeks to prevent pollution and protect natural surroundings at all of its facilities, both from an operations and a product standpoint. Additionally, Dresser Wayne adheres to a strict policy of regulatory compliance and is committed to sustainability principles.
“We are proud to be an ISO 14001:2004 organization,” says Jim Walton, Director of Quality and Process Improvement. “Minimizing environmental risks and impact is a key part of Dresser Wayne’s business practices. This certification demonstrates our commitment to establishing and maintaining an eco-friendly culture.”
Dresser Wayne has programs in place at all of its operations and facilities around the world to achieve ISO 14001 certification within the next several months.
