Why ISO 14001 EMS?

Environmental management is a systematic approach to environmental care in all aspects of business. Being one of the largest contractors in Hong Kong, China State Construction Engineering (Hong Kong) Limited has, however, realized not only benefits of adopting environmental management system in financial terms (saving, production efficiency, penalty, market potential) but also risks of not adequately addressing environmental aspects (accidents, inability, legal non-compliance, negative image and reputation, loss of markets). ISO 14001 Environmental Management System can help us to approach environmental issues systematically and to integrate environmental care as a normal part of the Company's operation and strategy as well as to contribute to the sustainable development.

What are the Benefits of ISO 14001 Certification?
