JCDecaux North America has successfully renewed its ISO 14001 certificate

March 19th, 2018



JCDecaux North America has successfully renewed its ISO 14001 certificate, a major international benchmark and system for environmental management, and for the first time in compliance with the more recent 2015 standards. The result of a year of work and preparation, this certification demonstrates JCDecaux’s commitment to environmental management.

 

JCDecaux North America has held ISO 14001 certification since 2013 for its airport, billboard and street furniture activities.

 

Nicolas Clochard-Bossuet, Chief Operating Officer of JCDecaux North America, commented: "The renewal of our certification exemplifies, once again, the importance of sustainable development for JCDecaux North America. This ISO 14001 certification for the airport, billboard and street furniture activities rewards the efforts and commitment of all the staff (Operations Management, Legal and Human Resources) that helped put in place specific processes better protecting the environment and our sustainable development. Here are a few notable examples : the expansion of our solar-powered bus shelter inventory in Chicago, Boston and New York, the recycling of 100% of the paper used in street furniture advertising, of all electronic waste (LCDs, batteries) and all fluorescent tubes from all activities, as well as the replacement of fluorescent tubes with LEDs on all New York street furniture. Further supporting the reduction of the environmental impact of our operations, JCDecaux’s employees and contractors undergo training every year on JCDecaux’s environmental policy and the ISO 14001 principles, and on eco-driving and waste management, including hazardous materials and management of chemicals. I would like to thank and congratulate all the teams for the considerable efforts that enabled us to obtain the renewal of this prestigious certificate."

 

At the end of 2017, 15 other Group subsidiaries held an ISO 14001 certification (Australia / Brazil / Belgium / Denmark / Finland / France / Hong Kong / Hungary / Ireland / Italy / Netherlands / Norway / Portugal / Spain / UK). Today 4 of them are already compliant with the 2015 standards (France, Norway, UK, US). The rest of subsidiaries are actually working hard to be validated with the 2015 standards in the coming months.
