Davie Shipbuilding receives ISO certification for environmental stewardship

(LEVIS, Quebec) — A few weeks after becoming the first shipyard in Canada to earn ISO 9001:2015 certification, Davie Shipbuilding succeeded in meeting the latest globally recognized environmental standards.

Davie Shipbuilding, the largest shipbuilder in Canada, has successfully implemented an environmental management system based on ISO 14001:2015, thereby promoting environmental stewardship at all levels.

"Davie has a history of rising to the challenge," said Jared Newcombe, Davie CEO. "Regulatory requirements, public concerns, climate change and of course, Davie's forward thinking, which is an integral part of our DNA, have pushed us to take this additional step to show our know-how and dedication to the marine industry. "

Developed along three main lines — compliance with environmental laws, continuous improvement and pollution prevention — Davie's environmental management system had to go through a comprehensive audit in order to obtain the seal of excellence. The ISO 14001:2015 certification, issued by the International Organization for Standardization, recognizes, among other things, the organization's ability to implement proactive measures to preserve the environment from harm and degradation.
