CLEVELAND, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SAI Global has certified St. Elizabeth Hospital of Appleton, Wisconsin, part of Affinity Health System, to ISO 14001. This environmental management system certification represents Affinity's environmental commitment.

ISO 14001 is an international standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) through dedicated technical committees representing approximately 150 countries around the world. Its purpose is to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy committing it to prevention of pollution, compliance with legal and other requirements, and continual improvement.

Affinity was looking for a driver that would help them increase awareness within their environmental surroundings while linking all departments, existing business strategy and goals, and culture to move beyond compliance in their journey of continuous improvement. SAI Global partnered with Affinity to help develop and implement each step of the certification process.

Applying an Environmental Management System helped Affinity recognize current issues and become fully aware of their surroundings on an environmental level. With commitment from top management and a dedicated process improvement team of environmental champions, they focused on planning and developing a robust ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. Iqbal Mian, Sustainability Team Leader for Affinity Health System, stated that "when we met with SAI Global auditors, it provided a real eye opener to the flexibility of the ISO 14001 process. We felt we spoke the same language, which was key in the certification process."

The results have garnered an ISO 14001 certificate of registration for St. Elizabeth Hospital. Today, Affinity operates an Environmental Management System that analyzes all operations and services within their influential control, and attempts to reduce impact to people and planet to advance prosperity of their community. Gary Kusnierz, Vice President of Performance Excellence for Affinity Health System, said "this exciting achievement not only affirms our commitment to continuous improvement, but it helps us understand our ecological footprint in health care as we strive to perform beyond compliance."

Mr. Mian furthered this enthusiasm, adding, "SAI Global took the time to understand our organization and our continuous improvement culture. Overall, the level of quality, professionalism and humanity of SAI Global auditors was extraordinary."
