In support of our vision, Con Edison has well defined environmental, health, and safety management systems. The company received formal certification for these management systems under the ISO 14001 Standard from the International Organization for Standardization. Ongoing compliance audits by independent auditors confirm that Con Edison has comprehensive environment, health, and safety management protocols in place, and that they are being properly implemented.
These management systems serve as the strategic framework for sustaining our commitment to excellence. They specify how we maintain procedures and provide employee training. They define the auditing, monitoring, and review processes that drive continuing gains in performance. The systems serve as the blueprint for advancing the identification, analysis, and management of environment, health, and safety risks to facilitate prediction and prevention efforts. They also point the way to reducing waste and preventing pollution through recycling and effective work-planning programs, and by promoting strategies for energy conservation.
Con Edison publishes an extensive Environment, Health and Safety Annual Report. This provides an in-depth look at the company's programs, results achieved, strategic initiatives for the future, and five-year logs of key environmental, health, and safety performance trends.
