Environment > Certifications


Environmental Management Systems create a framework aiming at identifying impacts of an organization’s activities, defining improvement targets, implementing action plans and evaluating progress. In this context, each Recylex group’s establishment and subsidiary has management systems which are certified by approved organisations. These certifications constitute international standards in the fields of Quality, Health, Safety and Environment.


  • The ISO 9001:2008 standard relates to quality management systems. It defines the minimum requirements for an organization’s quality management system. The standard is based on four main fields: management responsibility, quality system, process and continual improvement of the system.


  • The ISO 14001:2004 international standard provides for environmental management system requirements (E.M.S.) enabling any organization to define a policy and targets by taking into account any legal requirements and information relating to important environmental impacts.


  • The OHSAS 18001:2007 standard is a model of workplace health and safety management system aiming at preventing risks in the workplace by providing any organization with an assessment support of their workplace health and safety management system which is compatible with international management system standards.


  • The ISO 50001:2011: This standard sets out guidelines for the development of a systematic approach to energy management in order to improve energy efficiency performance. A management system meeting the requirements of this standard makes it possible to achieve immediate energy savings and cost reductions. The main goals of ISO 50001 are to meet the challenges of energy scarcity and the persistent increase in energy prices whilst also contributing to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
