Toronto, Canada—Hatch is pleased to announce that the company has retained International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001:2015 certification for 2020-2023 for its Mississauga offices.

Hatch’s auditor, SAI Global, noted that Hatch continues to demonstrate advanced Environmental Management Systems (EMS) practices with key strengths including:

· the Sustainability Policy which "is excellent in how it addresses Hatch issues, beginning with our vision and ending with accountability and responsibility"

· efforts by project managers to employ sustainability, due diligence, and risk identification on projects

· implementation of remote project and auditing techniques

· The HEMS Manual which is "an excellent overview of the interaction of issues, interested parties, environmental conditions and risks and opportunities, and planned actions"

ISO 14001:2015 re-certification confirms that Hatch’s approach to sustainable business practices, the implementation of proactive initiatives to prevent pollution and to protect the environment from harm, and the company’s commitment to continual improvement is effective.

“Our ISO 14001:2015 certification of our Mississauga offices, home to our largest employee base of roughly 2,000 employees, is a testament to our company’s broad commitment to achieving our sustainability goals, both through our own actions as a company and in the work that we do in partnership with our clients. Ultimately, we are aiming to build solutions that are sustainable, and which create long-term positive impacts,” said Al Leggett, Global Operations Director, Environmental Services Group.
