ISO 14001:2004 Certification
Is Our Goal
Nucor mills must achieve ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Systems (EMS) certification. After the first Nucor plant was certified in 2001, Nucor recognized there was a tremendous value in having an EMS at each of our operations. That is now our goal.
Forty-seven Nucor facilities have achieved ISO 14001-2004 certification. Each new mill going through the certification process benefits from what was learned by others. This knowledge-sharing, coupled with peer-to-peer audits of existing programs, allows the newer EMS to start at higher levels than ever before.
Prior to being granted ISO certification, each system must earn third-party endorsement from an accredited registrar. Becoming certified takes complete site-wide involvement, with communications at all levels.
