ISO 14001 for Vrijdag

| November 7, 2016

Vrijdag Premium Printing has received ISO 14001:2015 certification to add to the company’s long-standing ISO 9001 certification.

The ISO standard is an internationally recognized hallmark of environmentally friendly management systems. In particular, ISO 14001 assesses companies for correct compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and promotes continued improvement of environmental performance.

As part of the audit, Vrijdag Premium Printing’s environmental policy was assessed on development, implementation, management and execution.

“More and more of our stakeholders are inquiring into our policy and performance in relation to the environment and sustainability,” said Henk Nota, managing director at Vrijdag Premium Printing.  “So we felt it was time to have our policy independently assessed.”

At around the same time as receiving ISO 14001 certification, for the second time running, Vrijdag Premium Printing also signed the MJA-3 covenant: a multi-annual agreement between companies and the Dutch government aimed at energy efficiency.

In recent years, Vrijdag Premium Printing achieved energy savings of 8.6%. The firm’s goal for the following three years is to reduce energy consumption by a further 8%.

“Energy efficiency contributes towards our achieving both the sustainability and economic targets we have set ourselves, and will help strengthen our competitive position,” said Nota.
