443

Korindo Wind, an ISO 9001:2008 certified wind tower and monopile manufacturer, has earned ISO 14001:2004 certification for its environmental management systems. The certification is the result of an audit completed in September 2010 by Geneva-based SGS, a world leader in inspection, verification, testing and certification for companies in a range of industries. Korindo Wind is one of the few wind tower manufacturers in the world to earn the ISO 14001 certification.

“This International Organization for Standardization certification further validates Korindo Wind’s dedication to the values of stewardship and responsibility,” according to Ricky Seung, president of Los Angeles-based Kousa International, exclusive agent for Korindo Wind. “It’s important that companies engaged in renewable industries demonstrate this kind of commitment to sustainability and the health of the planet. Korindo Wind customers now have even greater assurances that, as we continue to manufacture one of the primary components for wind energy, we are continuously seeking innovative ways to limit the environmental impacts of our operations.”

ISO 14001:2004 provides a framework for a holistic, strategic approach to an organization’s environmental policy, plans and actions. While the standard does not lay down specific levels of environmental performance, organizations must demonstrate a commitment to compliance with applicable environmental legislation and regulations, along with a commitment to continual improvement in their environmental management systems.

Korindo Wind, a division of The Korindo Group, has a technologically advanced plant in Ciwandan, Indonesia, that features a highly efficient linear production line with an annual capacity of 800 towers. The company also provides Precision LogisticsSM, a comprehensive, risk-free logistics solution based on Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) shipping. For more information go to www.korindowind.com.
