The Hermes Management System: Excellent

What began in 1993 with the successful certification of Hermes quality management in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001 continued in 2002 with the addition of environmental management (DIN EN ISO 14001). Energy management (DIN EN ISO 50001) was added in 2014 and is now our integrated Management-System with worldwide scope.

The basis for Hermes' environmental policies is compliance with national and international laws and regulations. Our first environmental management system was in place as early as 1995, and was certified to the standards of DIN EN ISO in 2002.
