In order to achieve the goal of certifying the Environmental Management System in all the Group’s units, the HSE function continued to coordinate and monitor the Certification programme, adding a further nine plants to the list of ISO 14001 certified sites. By the end of 2021, a total of 90% of Prysmian plants were certified under ISO 14001.
The group’s percentage of ISO 45001 standards on Health and Safety Management Systems fell slightly from the previous year, mainly due to the acquisition of some uncertified operating units. The figure was 69% at the end of 2021.The above percentages relate to production sites only. Various types of Group entities have also been certified, such as R&D, installation and assembly and distribution centres, etc., for a total of a further five ISO 14001 certificates and six ISO 45001 certificates.
The Group promotes the integrated use of Management Systems (ISO 9001-45001-14001-50001), IT system support, the definition of specific targets and performance indicators (KPIs) for individual Regions or Business Units, as essential elements in the sustainability path of all affiliates, in line with the commitments undertaken at Group level.
