Far reaching decisions have to be made on the international environmental market, particularly in the project-business. In order to decide in a safe and target-oriented way and to make our projects predictable and manageable, we have introduced an integrated management system serving the entire Group: our WTE/EVN environmental system. Beside quality- and environmental management it comprises additional elements of risk management.
Being a service provider, who is obliged to protect the environment and to comply with all legal requirements in this respect, we voluntarily accepted the extension to environment management system according to DIN EN ISO 14001. The WTE/EVN environmental system was extended by the environmental policy, strategies and targets were adjusted accordingly. We identified all relevant environmental aspects as well as our legal obligations. By means of yearly reviews we check the environmental programme and the realisation of our targets.
All affiliates and branches were successively integrated into the WTE/EVN environmental system. Thus, we created an international standard that was continuously developed further in Austria, Poland, Russia, Croatia, and other countries. The group-internal international co-operation among WTE teams is substantially facilitated by applying harmonised processes and interfaces. Transparency of the System and continuing enhancement serve target-oriented project handling by applying clear processes of information, communication and documentation.
In the light of our ongoing growth that is borne by extending our project business at home and abroad, we pay utmost attention to project risks. Our projects are exposed to a number of business-, operational-, financial and event risks. The identification, control and mastering of these risks by applying comprehensive risk management and control-systems, is an indispensible element of our WTE/EVN environmental system. By exercising this system we are in the position to make use of those chances that are frequently hidden inside risks. Chances to grant sustainable environment protection to our clients.
