The certification applies to the Sperry Marine offices in Antwerp, Belgium; Copenhagen, Denmark; Hamburg, Germany; Vlaardingen, Netherlands; Bergen, Norway; and New Malden, U.K.

It does not specify levels of environmental performance but establishes a framework and strategic approach for the company’s environmental policy, plans and actions.
