Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. have received ISO 14001 certification for its headquarters and a number of their factories, regional branches and subsidiary companies throughout Japan.
ISO 14001 is a globally recognised standard for an environmental management system. It specifies requirements for establishing an environmental policy, determining environmental aspects and impacts of products, activities and services, planning environmental objectives and measurable targets, implementation and operation of programmes to meet objectives and targets, checking and corrective action, and management review.
"With the ISO 14001 Certificate, Mimaki aims to be a company devoted to the environment and sustainability. We are continuously improving our environmental assurance and performance in all business activities to have the least impact on our environment and burden for future generations." said Akira Ikeda, president of Mimaki Engineering.
In addition to Mimaki's corporate efforts, their exclusive UK and Ireland distributors, Hybrid Services Ltd have already made considerable strides in this area too. Hybrid's focus on effective waste management programmes and responsible ink and machine recycling with the Let's Do MORE! scheme and WEEE directive compliance has already had a significant impact within the digital printing industry; further details of which can be found at www.LetsDoMore.co.uk
