ISO 14001 Certification

ISO 14001 Certification

In November 2011, Summit Brands received an ISO 14001 Certification to help drive and manage our environmental compliance and sustainability efforts through a formal and organized environmental management system (EMS). This framework has allowed us to manage our goals through the use of metrics and reviews by top management, drive continual improvement, and meet and exceed our customer and consumer expectations.

As a leader in protecting the environment, Summit Brand’s EMS has been registered to ISO 14001 at all of its Fort Wayne, Indiana locations.

Environmental Policy

Summit Brands is committed to doing well by doing good in our business and the community. We pledge to prevent pollution, continually improve toward our environmental objectives and comply with applicable regulations.

We are committed to:
  • Comply with applicable regulations
  • Prevent pollution
  • Develop and review our environmental objectives and targets
  • Continually improve our environmental management system

DESIGN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT (DfE)

In 2012, Summit Brands entered into a partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency to certify two of its products, Dishwasher Magic and Washer Magic, through EPA’s Design for the Environment (DfE) program.

The DfE program allows us to work with EPA to create safer, more cost-effective products for the environment and our consumers. The requirements to achieve DfE recognition are rigorous. In order to meet this challenge, we have integrated the DfE safer product process into our established Environmental Management System.
