J. J. Keller Celebrates Ten Years of ISO 14001 Certification
Neenah, WI — Since 2001, the environmental management systems of J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc.® have been registered by UL DQS Inc. to the ISO 14001 standard. Which means, 2011 marks the tenth anniversary of the company's certification.
By following strict ISO 14001 guidelines, J. J. Keller ensures that environmental considerations are part of every phase of the company’s business decisions. "We are committed to finding new ways to protect our environment," said J. J. Keller Chairman and CEO Robert Keller. "At first we did it because it seemed to be the right thing to do, but now we're seeing the business benefits."
So much so, that J. J. Keller – a leading provider of regulatory compliance information for the transportation, workplace safety and human resources industries – currently saves nearly 18% on its annual energy costs, thanks to energy efficient warehouse lighting, chiller units, variable speed drives on motors, and three 20kW wind turbines.
Plus, whenever practical, paper and boxes certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, Forest Stewardship Council or Green Seal are used in J. J. Keller's manufacturing facility, along with linseed and soy-based inks.
The company also recycles 90-95% of its total waste. By recycling paper, plastic, metals, core plugs, toner cartridges, athletic shoes and more, J. J. Keller has saved over 22,000,000 lbs. of material from entering landfills since 2001.
And the company's green initiative shows no signs of slowing down. Each year, J. J. Keller establishes new corporate goals for environmental stewardship – and consistently exceeds them. This year is no different, as J. J. Keller and its associates are currently working to surpass 2011 corporate goals for increasing energy efficiency and preventing pollution.
Since its 2004 inception, J. J. Keller's voluntary employee carpool program has conserved 118,553 gallons of gasoline, preventing 2,388,408 lbs. of pollutants from being emitted into the air.
Said Frank Bell, Manager of Environmental, Safety and Security for J. J. Keller, "It's been gratifying to see how all areas of the company have embraced this program and are working to improve the process."
