Press Release
Monday, December 17, 2012
RINA-Fincantieri ISO 14001 Presentation

Fincantieri's Muggiano shipyard awarded RINA "Environmental Protection" certification under ISO 14001.

The yard in Riva Trigoso (Genoa), which together with Muggiano forms Fincantieri's specialist naval shipbuilding centre, is expected to be certified within the next month.

In order to qualify for ISO 14001 certification, applicants must, amongst other things,  draw up programs to improve their systems that manage environmental aspects and the related impacts, and they must introduce internal guidelines and controls to regulate and monitor activities from an environmental perspective.

ISO 14001 certification is not at present mandatory but voluntary, and is therefore a factor for identifying best practice businesses. It is also becoming mandatory to have this certification in order to participate in bids called by Italy's military forces (in fact, it is required by the Italian Navy and Finance Police) and in order to operate in important specialized segments of the marine market - particularly the offshore one - and in marine systems and components.

The ceremony was attended for RINA by Roberto Cazzulo, Chief Regulatory Affairs Officer and, for Fincantieri, by Ferdinando Tognini, Manager of the Riva Trigoso and Muggiano shipyards, Alessandro Concialini, Naval Vessel Business Unit Deputy Director, Giovanni Andreani, Head of Safety, and Giovanni Romano, Executive Senior Vice President Mega Yachts.

Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, said: "Today's milestone is an important step in the process of evolution that sees Fincantieri committed to safety and the environment. We believe that in addition to being key factors for those who work in surroundings like ours, these issues have a positive impact on the management of processes, on cost and injury reduction, and on the quality of corporate life."
