Certification – Quality, health, safety and the environment

TMC is certified according to the quality standard ISO 9001, the environmental standard ISO 14001 and HSE standard OHSAS 18001. We place high demands on ourselves and work continuously to improve our internal processes, our work within health, environment and safety and our adverse effect on the external environment. We require that our key suppliers are equally dedicated in these issues.

 

Environment

As being an ISO 14001:2015 certified company, sustainable business focus is integrated in TMC. Not only in regards of our own operation, but also by providing our customers with better sustainable solutions through our energy-efficient delivery program. This is the core of our environmental policy.

Our operation may be small, but the use of our products offers a substantial potential of reducing environmental impact. Our environmental plan and goals focus on how our products can help our customers to reach their environmental goals, by reducing their energy consumption, and thereby reducing their bunker consumption and emissions.

The energy-saving, award-winning TMC Smart Air® series of cost-effective marine compressors reduce energy consumption by at least 40% and significantly reduce energy costs and harmful emissions. Our products are to be among the best of their kind and we continue to further enhance and develop better solutions, providing energy-saving solutions and a minimum of pollution and waste during our products’ life cycle.

As a relatively small company, we believe every effort counts. It's a growing concern how plastic and waste pollutes the world's oceans. As a supplier to the maritime industry, we are dedicated to reduce our plastic consumption and use environmental friendly packing. In 2017, we managed to reduce our plastic consumption by 17 000 plastic bags! And we are not done.  Imagine what a large company can achieve…
