Compliance and standards
We’re building excellence into our operations in accordance with rigorous international standards.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) develops global guidelines for, among many other things, the internal management systems that govern operations. HARMAN’s quality, energy, social, safety and environmental programs and management approach incorporate many of the elements reflected in ISO guidance.
HARMAN is committed to continual improvement in environmental performance as prescribed in ISO 14001. These efforts include a worldwide Environmental Management System at HARMAN facilities. To date, HARMAN has achieved external certification under ISO 14001 at several key operating locations. Our corporate environmental policy also includes provisions that set worldwide standards for operations at all HARMAN facilities and suppliers. Our policy mandates that we:
- Ensure our activities, products and operations are in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local environmental laws, and other requirements to which we subscribe
- Conduct our operations in a manner that is committed to prevention of pollution, conservation of resources, careful handling of hazardous substances and promotion of environmental responsibility
- Review our environmental procedures periodically and set objectives and targets that minimize negative environmental impact and lead to continuous improvement
- Communicate our environmental commitments to all persons working for or on behalf of HARMAN and to our customers
