The ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Certification
After months of intensive preparation with the following plants and sites, we are proud to announce that the TÜV (the German technical inspection authority) external environmental audits are now complete.
Schiedel UK’s Washington branch and other Schiedel locations have successfully passed the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Certification!
The following sites are integrated in the ISO 14001 certification process:
– Munich (Head Office)
– Nußbach (Administration)
Schiedel had focused on this certification since before 2019 and, unfortunately, the process was delayed due to Covid 19.
Back on track, we are delighted to have taken another positive step towards environmental management and sustainability with this certification as part of our Going Green Programme.
Of course, we would like to thank all the colleagues at every site for their high commitment, dedication and collaboration.
Congratulations to everyone on this accomplishment!

Our new, strategic goals are a lot more ambitious:
