On August 4, 2008, Palm Bay Utilities Department's Environmental Management System known as GreenWay became certified under the internationally recognized ISO 14001:2004 environmental standard. PBUD became the first utility in Florida to have its entire organization certified under this standard. The requirements of an EMS include continual improvement, pollution prevention, and regulatory compliance.  Palm Bay Utilities Department has also chosen to embed its safety program within its EMS to become an even more effective water and wastewater utility.

 

ISO 14000:2004 is the international standard for environmental management for both private and public agencies. The purpose of ISO 14000:2004 is focus on what an organization does to minimize harmful effects on the environment caused by its activities and to ensure that the organization continually improves its environmental performance.

Certification of an EMS results after an independent, external body audits the organization’s EMS and verifies that it conforms to the ISO 14001:2004 standards. Registration occurs when the external auditing body records the certification in the client register.
