ISO 14001 Environmental Management System
We aim to certify our manufacturing facilities to the internationally recognized ISO 14001 environmental standard and now have 81 certified sites around the world, representing 70 per cent of our business by turnover.
Our Automotive business was one of the first in the automotive industry to achieve a corporate certificate for environmental management. A single ISO 14001 certificate from TUV SUD Management Service GmbH covers group functions and the vast majority of our Automotive plants worldwide.
ISO 50001 Energy Management System
We have maintained ISO 50001 certification across all operations in Germany, Italy, Finland and the Automotive engineering function. Investment in sub-metering hardware and software installations allows a high level of transparency in energy consumption and enables a sophisticated energy planning process with improvement activities, target setting and frequent reviews to be established.
Environmental Product Declarations (EDPs)
EPDs allow architects to access environmental information and complete sustainability assessments of buildings. The German Institute of Building and Environment (IBU) awarded EPDs for Pilkington Pyrostop® and Pilkington Pyrodur® fire-resistant glass, according to ISO 14025 and EN 15804. NSG Group has received Japan’s first EPD for architectural glass products, including float, insulated glass units, laminated and toughened glass from UL, an international certification organization in the US.
