Dover Fueling Solutions (“DFS”), a Dover company that delivers advanced fuel dispensing equipment, electronic systems and payment, fleet systems, automatic tank gauging and wetstock management, has been awarded the ISO (International Organisation for Standardization) 14001:2015 Environmental Management System (EMS) standard.
The ISO 14001:2015 EMS standard is published by the International Organisation for Standardization, the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards. The certification is awarded by the BSI Group and sets a benchmark of expertise and excellence for operations at our Dundee facility.
The manufacturing facility in Dundee is the largest DFS facility in Europe, Middle East and Africa, hosting the design, engineering and production of Tokheim’s iconic Quantium™ fuel dispensers in addition to support functions including customer service, supply chain and logistics.
The ISO 14001:2015 specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that serves to enhance an organisations environmental performance. The DFS facility in Dundee has been awarded the new standard due to the systematic way it manages environmental responsibilities, contributing to the environmental pillar of sustainability, efficient operational processes and improved employee engagement.
The facility has until now operated to the ISO 14001:2004 EMS standard. The move to the new 2015 standard signifies better integration with other business activities through the format of Annex SL, an enhanced approach to the process and methodology of the PDCA cycle, heightened involvement of top management in the EMS, all round focus on the lifecycle of the product and an evolved emphasis for environmental performance monitoring.
Jan Liebregts, Director Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) and Quality for DFS said, “We are extremely proud that the Dundee facility has been awarded the ISO 14001:2015 EMS certification. We take very seriously the responsibility of managing the environmental impact across our business and have matured our environmental management system in Dundee to provide value for the environment, our organisation, and interested parties.”
A local project team was created at the Dundee facility to develop robust procedures and processes to support performance and complete the transition to the new standard of EMS.
Ross Melville, QEHS Director at the DFS manufacturing facility in Dundee explained, “Consistent with our environmental policy, our EMS in Dundee aims to enhance our environmental performance, fulfil compliance obligations and achieve our environmental objectives. I would like to thank Brian Archibald, HSE Manager, DFS, for his hard work and determination in delivering this transition project. I would also like to thank Andy Barton, Manufacturing Director, DFS and his team. Additional thanks to the environmental auditors who have worked hard to develop robust procedures and processes to support our performance and compliment the transition to the 2015 standard of our EMS.”
