At Brother Emmerich, in order to minimise our impact on the environment, we have adopted the International Environmental Management System ISO 14001 standard.
In March 2009, Brother Internationale Industriemaschinen successfully achieved full accreditation to this international standard.
This was awarded following a detailed independent assessment by TÜV Süd Managment Service GmbH, Munich, Germany, Cert. No. 12 104 35669 TMS
Fundamental to this standard is continual monitoring and measuring of our environmental performance so we can identify and implement improvements to protect and preserve the environment. Typical examples include;
Reducing in house Paper usage.
Reducing energy consumption.
Reducing the amount of Packaging Materials used.
Increase the amount of re-cycling.
Promote greater use of Duplex Printing.
These are a small sample of the many areas of our activities which we empirically measure and report on a monthly basis to monitor our performance.
At all times, Brother will operate within German and European Union environmental legislation and will continuously monitor such legislation as it progresses.
