In 1993, DAF began setting up an environmental management system in accordance with the international ISO14001 standard for environmental management systems. This standard is based on the Planning-Doing-Checking-Acting cycle and is aimed by definition at the continuous improvement of environmental achievements.
This environmental management system covers all activities at all locations, including DAF’s own dealer companies with a service workshop. The environmental management system implemented at DAF’s Eindhoven and Westerlo sites and DAF’s own dealer companies has been ISO 14001 certified
In addition, DAF encourages independent dealers to set up an environmental management system and have it certified. Dealers can receive a bonus based on the DAF Dealer Standards, if they have an environmental certificate.
From June 1st 2013 onwards ISO 14001 will become a basic mandatory standard for DAF Sales & Service dealers.
