DEERFIELD BEACH, FL - Mapei, a leader in the manufacturing of adhesives, sealants and chemical products for building, is also making its mark in the area of sustainability. In 2010, the company’s Laval, Quebec, plant - the first of 18 Mapei facilities established in the Americas - achieved another first for Mapei Americas as it gained ISO 14001 certification for its Environmental Management System, reports the company.

In 1998, the Mapei Group’s main production and distribution center in Robbiano di Mediglia (near Milan, Italy) incorporated the Environmental Management System in accordance with the ISO 14001 standard. The experience gained from involvement with Responsible Care and the already-certified Quality System at Mapei served as a solid base on which to build the Environmental Management System. The two systems, in fact, share many common features, such as prevention, leadership, commitment to continuous improvement, organization, documentation, objective evidence of achieved results, and personnel training. In 2004, the Latina plant also attained ISO 14001 certification.
