FuelCell Energy, Inc. has received ISO 14001:2015 certification for its Environmental Management System (EMS). The certification was received last quarter, highlighting FuelCell Energy’s improvement and commitment to environmental stewardship.

International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 14001:2015 is the international standard focusing on practical tools for companies looking to manage their environmental responsibilities.

“The ISO 14001:2015 certification is an important milestone for FuelCell Energy,” said Tony Rauseo, Chief Operating Officer.

“Environmental impact has always factored into our business strategy, and this certification exemplifies our commitment to environmental performance in a socially responsible manner. This is engrained in our corporate culture and business management, as well as in the design, manufacturing, installation and servicing of our SureSourceTM fuel cell power plants.”

“In addition, our commitment to environmental stewardship provides us with a competitive advantage through improved efficiencies and reduced cost for our customers, such as lower energy consumption, reduced waste, and a strong commitment to mitigating risks accidents,” Rauseo continued.

The company’s EMS provides a framework to continually improve environmental performance and ensures that rigorous environmental standards are met through efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.

SureSourceTM power plants solve energy, environmental and business-related power generation challenges by providing ultra-clean, efficient and reliable distributed power generation. The fuel cells combine a fuel such as renewable biogas, directed biogas or clean natural gas with oxygen from the air to produce ultra-clean electricity and usable high-quality heat via an electrochemical process.

ISO 14001-2015 certification requires an organisation to demonstrate that their systems meet the very latest in global best practices for environmental management. To attain the ISO 14001:2015 certification, an organisation must exhibit its commitment to sustainability and the environment.
