Winkler was recently awarded the ISO 14001 Certification (Italy UNI EN ISO 14001: 2004). This comes in recognition to the way company has developed and implemented an appropriate management system to monitor the environmental impacts of its activities (emissions, waste water, other ecological management systems) in a coherent, effective and above all sustainable way.
Two decades old Winkler’s philosophy of excellence in the field of workers’ safety and environmental care that was, back then, pioneering in the industry, crafted a new technology, Winkler-SAFE. This nevertheless brave business choice at the time, made possible to develop and create user and environmentally friendly, high performance water-based and solvent-free advanced building materials that are used today in construction sites around the world.
ISO 14001 Certification is a further validation to the overall quality of the proposition that Winkler has been bringing onto the marketplace even before such certifications were employed for products that can obtain the imprimatur of the most prestigious and rigorous certification body worldwide. A recognition that rewards the continuous, significant investments in research and development to create products which are as simple to use, as technologically advanced and demanding in their formulation.
Obtaining the ISO 14001 certification is just another step forward as far as prestige, perhaps towards goals yet to be written, but certainly already in the vision of Winkler.
