Environmental management system implementation in primary aluminium production facility


EEM directed the implementation of ISO 14001 management systems at five aluminium smelters across North America.

Approach and Solution

We accompanied local management teams through the implementation process at four of the smelters and provided a turnkey integrated ISO 14001 – ISO 9001 solution at the fifth location. We developed a corporate guide to ISO 14001 implementation, citing best practices and typical challenges, based on our experience in the mining and metals industry, to assist other subsidiaries downstream.


All facilities were successfully registered to the ISO 14001 standard. We were subsequently retained to design an integrated EHSQ management system for a new world class smelting facility in Iceland.
