Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 4, 2007
Beacon Management Inc. (BMI), one of the nations leading electronics recycling firms, has embraced the high environmental standards established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Following a rigorous Registrar audit, BMI recently earned ISO 14001:2004 certification for its environmental management system.
The competitive nature of today's electronics industry has inevitably led to a dramatic increase in the rate at which products become obsolete. BMI partners with electronic manufacturers to manage waste streams consisting of production scrap, returns, and warehouse excess.
Achieving ISO 14001:2004 certification was a natural step for BMI. Their facilities already operated under California's strict EPA guidelines. "Our company has flourished in the most environmentally progressive state in the country for over 15 years. This certification is really a statement of the culmination of BMI's long-standing efforts to bring green services to our clients," said Lawrance Goldberg, company president and founder. "It's good business, and it's good policy," agreed VP, Corporate Development, Shari Goldberg, "Our OEM and high-profile accounts need to know that they are partnering with a company that can mitigate their liabilities while reflecting their values."
BMI was assisted in earning its ISO certification by Change Management Consulting (CMC). No major or minor findings were found during the extensive Registration Audit conducted by SGS, indicating highly successful training and preparation.
"BMI represents a growing trend among manufacturers and recyclers, as well as service organizations, to embrace formal environmental standards," stated Stanley Cherkasky, CMC's Managing Partner. "They have demonstrated that going green is a profitable undertaking for all parties. We are pleased to lend our ISO 14001 expertise to help organizations enjoy the benefits of becoming environment friendly through ISO certification."
Due to concerns about global warming and pollution, organizations worldwide are rapidly moving towards environmental standards. In the process, they have discovered that being environmentally friendly typically boosts bottom-line profits. Developing an environmental management system that is ISO 14001:2004 certified has become the "gold" standard for far-sighted businesses to broadcast both social responsibility and astute management to the marketplace.
