Agility Fuel earns certification for ISO 14001 environmental standard

Agility Fuel Solutions is now certified compliant with the ISO 14001:2015 standard at its manufacturing facilities in Salisbury NC and in Raufoss, Norway.

These plant certifications were awarded by DNV GL for Agility’s implementation of a program to promote and practice environmental sustainability while ensuring the health and safety of its workforce. Agility is also driving compliance to the ISO 14001:2015 standard in its other manufacturing facilities and working toward their certification.

The ISO 14001:2015 standard is an internationally accepted standard for environmental management systems created by the International Organization for Standardization to help organizations minimize negative environmental effects from their operations, comply with laws, regulations, and environmental requirements, and achieve continual improvement of their environmental performance.

As part of its efforts to achieve this certification, Agility has established its own Environmental Management System (EMS) to provide assurance to management, employees, and external stakeholders that Agility is measuring and improving its environmental impacts and is in control of its processes and activities that may impact environment.

“Agility’s purpose as a company is to improve the environment by delivering world-class sustainable transportation solutions for our customers.  It’s important that we carry that commitment to sustainability through our own operations as well,” said Kurt Nielsen, Agility’s Senior Vice President – Corporate Operations and Customer Care.  “The establishment of our EMS and these certifications are important milestones on our sustainability journey.”

Agility also holds ISO 9001:2015 quality management system certifications from DNV GL for its operations in Salisbury NC and Fontana CA, Raufoss, Norway, and Kelowna BC, Canada.
