Samskip accredited for Environmental Management System
Samskip has secured ISO14001:2015 certification, becoming one of the very first Dutch companies whose Environmental Management System is recognised under the renewed Quality Assurance scheme.
The ISO14001:2015 accreditation, granted by Lloyd's Register after a two-day audit, covers Samskip's Rotterdam (shortsea) and Genemuiden (rail) operations at the heart of its pan-European multimodal operations.
Samskip's Corporate Sustainability strategy, introduced earlier this year, has been developed to benefit society, also to benefit Samskip as a business. The company has devised five key performance indicators to measure its progress: increasing the intermodal component in services in tonne miles; reducing emissions per km; reducing its KWh; reducing paper use in kg; and reducing water use in litres. Employees receive ‘sustainable guidelines' to encourage environmentally-responsible actions.
