BSH Home Appliances Corp., a maker of Bosch, Thermador, Siemens, and Gaggenau brand appliances, received ISO 14001 environmental certification for its appliance factories in New Bern, North Carolina, U.S.

Developed by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 14001 certification requires a company to meet strict international standards and implement management practices that minimize harmful effects on the environment caused by production.

Completed in 2005, BSH’s U.S. $300 million appliance park in New Bern is comprised of factories for washers, dryers, dishwashers, ranges, ovens, cooktops, and ventilation hoods for the Bosch, Thermador and Siemens brands.

To receive the ISO 14001 Certification, BSH undertook a 15-month process that entailed an audit of the facilities to identify anything that could potentially cause harm to the environment, the development of an environmental management system to eliminate or minimize each impact, and extensive employee training and inspections by independent environmental experts prior to certification.

"BSH is firmly committed to being at the forefront of environmental manufacturing wherever we operate," said Franz Bosshard, BSH president and CEO. "The certification assures our customers that they are purchasing quality products that have been manufactured according to the highest levels of efficiency in the use of materials, energy, water and land."
