Dycem’s strong commitment to protecting the environment is recognised by the award of EN ISO 14001

Dycem cleanroomsDycem, world leaders in providing high performance contamination control zones for critical environments, has been recognised for their commitment to operating a top level environmental policy. The company has been awarded EN ISO 14001 certification.

Dycem, in line with organisations of all kinds, is increasingly concerned with achieving and demonstrating sound environmental performance by controlling the impacts of their activities, products and services on the environment. Dycem show this with their published environmental policy and response in the context of increasingly stringent legislation, the development of economic policies and other measures that foster environmental protection. This also recognises an increase in concerns voiced by the community at large about environmental matters and sustainable development.

Dycem's environmental policy fully accepts their responsibility to minimize the effect that their operations have upon the environment. As Dycem managing director, Mark Dalziel, says "it is one of the most important challenges we face today."

This includes minimizing the consumption of energy and materials in the production and ultimate disposal of the products they manufacture for cleanroom contamination control. In a study published in the European Journal of Parenteral Sciences*, a survey comparing an alternative solution with that of Dycem's CleanZone product showed Dycem saved 18 tonnes less in raw materials, three million MJ of energy during manufacture and use as well as reducing greenhouse gases by over 120 tonnes. The alternative peel-off mat produces 29 times the waste compared to Dycem creating an environmental disposal problem of its own while 85% of Dycem materials are recyclable.

Dycem's organisation is committed to the protection of the environment. Training is provided to help all employees understand and recognize their environmental responsibilities while showing the benefits available to everyone achieved through the implementation of sound environmental practices. As Dalziel says, "this is more then just a matter of compliance. It is every individual's duty to society to respect the world in which we all live."
