The green course has not escaped the attention of ICL, and as part of the company's sustainable development, ICL is embracing a green policy. This policy is manifested in recycling, green construction and reduced usage of natural resources.
As part of this policy implementation, it was decided to certificate ICLs' plants and sites with an internal certification which embodies the standards of a green policy. A special committee detailed 25-30 criteria for the plants to be scored on in order to get the "Green Plant Certification".
The main goals of this process were: embracing sustainable development principals, encouraging environmental involvement, and focusing on "green policy" in future decision making processes.
Certification criteria were set and scored:
- Rational usage of resources (energy, water, electricity, paper)
- "Green" thinking
- Training and awareness
- Green construction
- Warnings, fines and events that required reporting to authorities were a cause for a lower score
This internal certification will be renewed once every two years, and will embody ICL's green policy.
