   Keypoints to establish ISO 14001 System
‘Environment’ starts with cost cut-down and elimination of waste elements.
Even a piece of paper, a light and a drop of water are made from wood and fossil fuel. Eco-friendly management begins with reducing cost and waste.
One need to improve processes and working methods before investment in facilities.
Improving processes and working methods to minimize the loss of cost and subsidiary materials and to best utilize the utility.
‘Environment’ is not only a risk but also an opportunity for business.
Do you still think that the investment in environment management is unnecessary? Only eco-friendly corporations can survive and only prepared ones can make progress.
