FINDLAY, Ohio. (Aug. 13, 2010) — Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.'s tire plant in Findlay has earned ISO 14001 environmental management system certification.
“We continually strive to improve in all aspects of our operations, and this certification demonstrates our ability to meet and exceed the most rigorous international standards,” said Jack Hamilton, Findlay plant manager.
The ISO 14001 standard specifies requirements for a facility's environmental management system, which involves continually auditing its performance and making continuous improvement efforts such as reducing energy use, conserving raw materials, and recycling, Cooper said.
