Our commitment to sustainability
We are committed to promote global environmental protection as an integral part of the products and services that we provide for our valued customers. We work hard to ensure that our legacy is and always will be one of integrity.
In the last century, we have learned that sustainment requires careful thought, planning and dedication. Environmental protection is taken into consideration throughout the production cycle and across our many business offerings. Ultimately, we accept and value the trust placed in us by our employees, our customers and the communities that we operate in and are a part of all around the world. We believe that these values are good for business and for the world we serve.
OUR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM POLICY. StandardAero is committed to management systems that promote quality excellence, environmental protection, occupational health and safety, and flight safety as a foundation of business excellence. Our commitment is demonstrated by our systematic approach to identify, mitigate and reduce risks; our compliance with all applicable legislation, regulations, and standards; and our drive to always meet our customer needs and expectations.
We view all related processes as activities to be managed, measured, and continually improved. We will ensure that all employees are kept informed of our management system objectives and performance through training and communication.
MEETING AND EXCEEDING STANDARDS. As a part of our commitment to upholding the highest standards of environmental sustainment in our everyday business decisions, we utilize an Environmental Management System (EMS) with a suite of tools aligned with other management systems within an organization that allows for environmental considerations in everyday business decisions.
ISO 14001 Standard is a model with the following principles:
- Environmental Policy
- Implementation and Operation
- Checking and Corrective Action
- Management Review
- Continual Improvement
The ISO 14001 model is organized as a series of elements, each specifying one or more "shall" statements that must be achieved for conformance to the standard as a whole. Failure to conform to one element of the standard is failure to comply with the standard. ISO 14001 EMS has proven operational, compliance and environmental performance results that are recognized worldwide as the standard to be measured against.
We are very proud to be the only third party-registered ISO 14001 aerospace enterprise in the world.
