Verso Mills Earn ISO 14001:2004 Certification

Oct. 13, 2008 - Verso Paper said that its four paper mills have been independently audited and certified to the ISO 14001:2004 environmental management system (EMS) standard. This internationally recognized standard identifies specific requirements for organizations that want to implement a comprehensive EMS aimed at continuous environmental performance improvement.

Verso’s mills are located in Bucksport and Jay, Maine; Quinnesec, Michigan; and Sartell, Minnesota.

ISO 14001-2004 certification requires that Verso’s mills be audited annually to verify that the EMS is operating efficiently and that employees are aware of their environmental responsibilities.
