Certificate DIN EN ISO 14001:2015

According to DIN EN ISO 14001

The introduction of the environmental management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14001 means Lahmeyer International will be promoting environmentally-friendly and culture-friendly sustainable development. The company will also continuously improve its performance in this area in the future. The growth of environmental awareness and public interest have an impact on business activities. The demand for environmentally-friendly services and socially responsible companies has gained in importance for Lahmeyer’s clients as well.

Successful certification audits by the TÜV technical inspectorate 
The normative preconditions for certification (in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14001) of the Bad Vilbel office were established when Lahmeyer International successfully completed a pre-audit in early September in the run-up to certification. On 27 and 28 September 2018 the external auditors from TÜV Hessen paid another visit to the central office in Bad Vilbel. In the initial certification procedure, Volker Rühl, Environmental Manager at Lahmeyer International, presented all the required documents. Lahmeyer project managers from the Energy Division presented two projects involving special environmental aspects to the auditors.
