3/14/2003 - Tektronix achieved a major milestone in environmental protection this week when it received certification to the ISO-14001 international standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS).
ISO-14001 certification is accredited third-party verification that Tektronix meets the requirements of the international standard. It is granted to companies that have demonstrated commitment to environmental stewardship. Certification can have economic benefits, from lower cost of materials to increased regulatory flexibility to improved investor relations.
"Achieving ISO-14001 certification is just one more way that Tektronix continues to distinguish itself as a leader in the test and measurement industry," said Ken Skinner, Environmental Manager, Tektronix. "Many of our customers are environmental leaders in their industries and are already ISO-14001 certified. Most, to varying degrees, recommend that their suppliers also become certified, and some even require it. Achieving certification puts us one step ahead of many of our competitors who are still pursuing certification."
"Receiving the ISO-14001 certification is recognition of Tektronix' long history and strong culture of environmental protection and stewardship," said Connie Goffe, ISO steering committee member. "Tektronix leveraged its already well-developed quality management system with requirements for EMS certification, saving time and resources and creating an unusually mature system for initial certification."
