StandardAero has received third-party certification for its environmental-management system (EMS) used at its 13 primary facilities in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Singapore and Australia. The EMS certification is in accordance with ISO 14001:2004 standard for environmental management systems. According to the company, this is the first certified, third-party global system for environmental protection and performance to be employed by an aviation service provider. “Some small, stand-alone aerospace companies may have single-site certificates and some larger companies, such as Boeing and Airbus, even have multiple facilities listed on their certificate, but none have a single global certificate that includes all products, processes and services provided by the company,” Brian Skrobarcek, StandardAero’s corporate director, environmental affairs, told AIN. “We anticipate reduced industrial hazardous and non-hazardous waste generation through systematic source reduction, technology insertion and process improvements.” The company anticipates reducing electricity, natural gas and water consumption throughout the production cycle. The scope of StandardAero’s EMS includes the repair and overhaul of gas turbine engines; general, business and airline platforms; accessories; avionics; structural maintenance; interior completions; and associated field services.
