Schmitz Cargobull Baltic’s site in Panevėžys, Lithuania, has been awarded its environmental management certification.
The recognition, which mean’s the plant’s environmental management processes are fully implemented according to the ISO 14001 standard, comes two years after the trailer builder’s Altenberge, Germany facility received its certification. The certification process must be repeated every three years.
Schmitz Cargobull is working on key environmental issues across all plants and has set itself the goal of having all major production sites environmentally certified, with environmental management and the responsible use of resources of particular importance at the production sites.
In the course of implementing the environmental management system, staff began to quickly see improvements in the area of energy and waste, the company said.
