ISO Certifies Sto on Environmental Management

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Comment | More

Sto Corp. has been awarded the ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System certification for all North American Sto Corp. locations. The certification was granted by SGS, the world's largest control and inspection company.

The ISO 14001:2004 international standard provides both a model for streamlining environmental management and guidelines to ensure environmental issues are considered within decision-making practices.

Sto Corp., maker of cladding, coating and restoration systems worldwide, attained the ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System accreditation after a series of audits at its manufacturing facilities in North America as well as the corporate headquarters in Atlanta. Locations will be assessed annually to ensure continual development of the Environmental Management System currently in place.

“Sto’s motto for more than 50 years has been ‘Building with conscience’,” said Sto president and CEO David Boivin. “This means that our guiding force in the design and manufacture of quality products is the impact that we make by our operations, services and products. Simply, this means doing the right thing for our customers, employees, communities, stake holders, and the environment.”

Sto Corp. products are designed to minimize environmental impact by their use and their manufacture.  Sto Corp. manufactures insulated wall claddings, fluid-applied waterproofing/air barriers, and even coatings that have pronounced self-cleaning properties. These products are key components in sustainable construction today.

Since the implementation of the EMS system, Sto Corp. has achieved a huge reduction in materials sent to landfill through company-wide recycling programs including paper and cardboard recycling.  Other areas of improvement include: reduction of electricity use in all facilities; waste water reduction and recycling in its manufacturing processes; and a program for airborne particulate capture and exposure reduction. These efforts help Sto minimize its carbon footprint.

Initiatives for 2009 include continuation of the program aimed at reducing overall energy consumption, further increasing recycling frequency and type, and improving employee’s environmental awareness. These initiatives offer additional business benefits as well as an even greater reduction in environmental impact.
