Boeing Facility Receives ISO 14001 Certification
Boeing’s airplane manufacturing facility in Everett, Washington has received ISO 14001 certification, confirming that the facility has a certified system in place to monitor, manage, and improve its environmental management system.
Boeing’s Everett facility sits on more than 1,000 acres and is surrounded by 16 wetlands that drain to fish-bearing streams. According to 2005 data, it annually recycles more than 56 tons of aluminum, 460 tons of steel and 800 tons of wood. Since 2000, the facility has reduced energy consumption by more than 31 million kWh, enough to light more than 10,500 homes for a year.
For Boeing, the certification gives evidence to investors and customers that the Everett plant is doing its part to protect the environment. “We chose to seek ISO 14001 certification because we care about the environmental impact of our products and services – in the air, in the factory and on the ground,” said Ross Bogue, vice president – general manager; 747/767/777 Programs and Everett Site. “And we will continue to focus on continually improving our environmental protection and conservation efforts.”
