Naturex receives Environmental Certification ISO 14001


Avignon – France. Tuesday, September 11th

Naturex has been audited by Bureau Veritas, the worldwide leader in environment certification services and received the ISO 14001 certification. The Naturex French plant successfully complied with the rigorous expectations of this independent third party organisation. The ISO 14001 is an internationally established norm that specifies the most important requirements in identifying, controlling, and monitoring the environmental aspects of any organization, and also how to manage and improve the whole system.

Mr Dikansky declared “Our ISO 14001 certification is an extension of our long-standing commitment to the environment”. He added “As a leading supplier of natural ingredients, our reputation is based on what we do, not just what we say. We are extremely proud to be one of the first natural ingredient suppliers to achieve this certification.”

In addition to the ISO 14001 certification, the Naturex French plant has also earned the ISO 9001 certification. These certification milestones confirm that the quality of service at Naturex is at an international standard, as is the company commitment to combining outstanding business practices with environmental management. A member of the United Nations Global Compact, Naturex is a leader in socially and environmentally responsible corporate citizenship.
