Javys, a.s.


Attitude to Environment

The practice of protecting the environment is evolving dynamically in the developed world. Due to the growing demand for sustainability and the improvement of the quality of the environment, numerous organizations pay increased attention to their own, potentially environmentally hazardous, activities, which includes the making of products as well as the providing of services. Environmental policies and development objectives aim to continuously improve the standards of environmental conduct.

JAVYS does not produce any tangible products for public circulation, yet this does not mean that it can not contribute to global environmental efforts. We employ a progressive tool, specifically designed for environmental management of companies, the so-called Environmental Management System (EMS). By decision of the company executive management we continue to further develop our Environmental Management System, in accordance with the ISO 14001:2004 standard “Environmental Management Systems. Requirements with Guidance for Use”.

It is a voluntary system designed and implemented by the organization for the management of its important environmental aspects and the corresponding influences on the environment, and for ensuring the compliance with legal and other requirements in that regard. The result of the successful implementation and continuous improvement of the EMS should be the lasting prosperity, economical growth, and a positive change in the interaction with, and responsibility for, the environment of the organization as well as the society as a whole.

The evaluation of the efficiency of the EMS, based on inspection and monitoring results as well as on a management inquiry, leads to further steps for the sustaining and continuous improvement of organization's environmental conduct.

A pre-certification audit on the 25th and 26th of October 2006 showed the preparedness of our company for the certification and the auditors recommended to proceed with the certification audit. JAVYS passed the EMS certification audit between the 29th of November and 1st of December 2006. During these days three auditors from the Det Norske Veritas certification company thoroughly examined the areas, which have, by their nature, a direct or indirect influence on the environment. In the course of the audit, they verified the compliance of the conduct of JAVYS with individual articles of the STN EN ISO 14001:2005 standard. The building of the EMS does not end with the obtaining of this certificate, on the contrary, JAVYS is determined to show continuous improvement. The protection of the environment is an inseparable part of our everyday work. The second periodic audit took place on 6.-7.12. 2011.
