Management and Staff of the Bucuti Beach Resort celebrate the news that they are believed to be the first in the Western Hemisphere to obtain the ultimate recognition in Environmental Management Systems, the ISO 14001 certification.
The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO)
is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies from more than 140 countries.
Tens of thousands of businesses are implementing ISO 9000, which provides a framework for quality management and quality assurance.
The ISO 14000 series provides a similar framework for environmental management.
14001 standard is applicable to any organisation that wishes to:
implement, maintain and improve an environmental management system
assure itself of its conformance with its own stated environmental policy
demonstrate conformance and make self-determination of conformance
ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations
seek certification of its environmental management system by an external third party organisation
make self-determination of conformance
Almost a year in preparation, the Bucuti
‘Green Team’ built upon their successful Green Globe 21 Certification standards to accomplish this monumental achievement.
