As of July 16, 2020, the environmental management system at Gränges’ Huntingdon site in the US has successfully been certified in accordance with the environmental management standard ISO 14001:2015.

Through this certification, Gränges guarantees to continuously and consistently improve our environmental performance and ensure that environmental impacts are identified, measured, analysed and reduced.
