Tecniplast, the LAS trend setter in environmental sustainability has obtained (by DNV GL) the extension of the field of application of EMS certification to the eco-design process according to ISO 14006 which applies globally to the Tecniplast organization.
This Standard provides guidelines to help Tecniplast to establish, document, implement, maintain and improve continuously our eco-design management as part of the environmental management system.
We know that each product or service has an impact on the environment during all stages of its life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials to end-of-life treatment.
We reached the goal, with this certification of eco-design to integrate environmental aspects into the design and development phases of products and services, in order to reduce their negative environmental impact and improve environmental performance throughout their life cycle.
The ISO 14006 is part of the 14000 family standard, and it is intended to help organizations to reduce the negative environmental effects of their products and services.
Thanks to this Eco design Process we identify during the design stage how each of the phases of a product or service life cycle will impact on the environment in order to reduce it to a minimum without compromising the quality and application of our products and services.
For every new product concept, our designers evaluate the materials, energy and toxicity in consideration of the product life cycle phases, following the below matrix:
The benefits obtained are great for customers/users but ultimately, to the Earth. The Result of the Eco Design Process are cleaner products and services for a greener planet.
