The Integrated Environmental and Quality Management System (IMS), instituted in 2014, was deployed in 2016 to all of our renewable power production plant development, design, financing, construction, and operational activities. A special structure has been put in place in order to meet the requirements related to meeting targets, risk management, and taking account changes to the context, particularly the regulatory one, within all of our business activities. This proactive approach illustrates our commitment to comply with the requirements of both standards, both in terms of continual improvement and controlling environmental impacts at all levels of the Group.
With ISO 14001 certification, we want to limit our business’s environmental footprint by incorporating into our quality approach an analysis of its impacts and those of our subcontractor partners. Measures to control and reduce those impacts have been put in place. At the head office, several actions have been taken, like organizing paper recycling with the company Elise and setting up recycling bins.
Activities in Chile and the United States have been included in the scope of ISO 9001 certification since January 2019 and in the scope of ISO 14001 certification since January 2020.
