Welcome to 2012, what we at ROC One are calling The Year of Green. While there has certainly been a shift to go green in the past years, we believe that this year we will see even more companies starting or amplifying their efforts on sustainability. We believe this will occur for two main reasons, one being customers have started to become more educated on green companies and are demanding their products, the other resulting from the overall reduced cost of going green.
In this issue we will discuss some key points of the ISO 50001 energy management standard, including an interview with Gareth Williams, an Energy Solutions Manager at Northern Rail. I was able to speak with him about Northern Rail's switch to ISO 50001 certification, including some details on cost savings and roadblocks that became evident in their decision to become certified.
EHS managers are always challenged with finding hard numbers justifying their work. Especially when devoting time and resources to the implementation and upkeep of management systems like ISO 14001. Five years after ROC One helped the Boeing Everett site achieve their ISO 14001 certification, we checked back in with Frank Migaiolo, the site's Senior Environmental Manager, to see what benefits and reductions they have achieved with their EMS.
In recent news, we have partnered with the Global Reporting Initiative as an Organizational Stakeholder to assist them in further developing their reporting standards; particularly relating to the chemical manufacturing industry.
We have also used the New Year as a perfect time to launch our new website, www.roc-one.com
. Please take a minute to check out our new site and let us know what you think.
