GreenPeak's Environmental Management System & ISO14001:2004 Certification
As the name suggests, GreenPeak is an environmentally conscious and green company.
GreenPeak’s green vision is translated in the introduction of a formal EMS (Environmental Management System, based on ISO14001:2004), integrated in the QMS (Quality Management System, based on ISO 9001:2008).
