Unirac: New Certifications for Environmental Stewardship

Written by 
In April 2011, Carbonfund.org partner and North America’s leading provider of solar power systems infrastructure, Unirac, became the first solar infrastructure company to achieve both ISO 14001:2004 and ISO 9001:2008 certifications. Unirac voluntarily participated in the certifications highlighting their focus on environmentally responsible business practices. The ISO 14001:2004 is “a framework for a holistic, strategic approach to the organization's environmental policy, plans and actions” while the ISO 9001:2008 standard offers “a tried and tested framework for taking a systematic approach to managing the organization's processes.” In order to achieve these certifications, Unirac’s certification, in part, was based on the following:
  • undertakes waste management via recycling initiatives
  • practices smart consumption of energy and materials
  • undertakes better use of natural resources
  • has adequate processes in place to manage environmental issues that might arise
  • undertakes continual improvement to minimize harmful effects on the environment caused by its activities
Since 2007 Unirac has been a dedicated partner of Carbonfund.org’s, committing to support our project to mitigate the climate impact of their air travel. From the company’s products, to the ISO certifications, to climate mitigation, Unirac is indeed a leader in business and sustainability.
