At Genelec, we believe that the best way we can serve our customers and employees is by drawing on the world’s collective wisdom to run our company in the most responsible way possible, and therefore we follow both the ISO 9001 Quality Management and ISO 14001 Environmental Management standards.
ISO 9001ISO 9001 is based on quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and involvement of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. Following ISO 9001 helps to ensure that our customers always receive consistent, good-quality products and services.
ISO 14001ISO 14001 creates the framework that allows us to set up an effective environmental management system. This gives both us and our customers the confidence of knowing that our company’s environmental impact is being continually measured, managed and improved.
EKOenergy CertificateCertified renewable energy plays a key part in reducing our carbon emissions and minimising the negative environmental and social impact of our business.
Our factory was built in 1985 to minimise energy wastage through its use of heat recovery and generous insulation throughout. Our commitment to renewables began when we moved from oil to a combination of wind and hydroelectric energy, and our latest factory expansion features over 450 roof-mounted solar panels.
The energy that we purchase is certified EKOenergy which meets strict sustainability criteria and helps to finance projects that combat energy poverty.
