Consunji power firms get environmental certification
Sem-Calaca Power Corp. (SCPC) and Southwest Luzon Power Generation Corporation (SLPGC), the power generation subsidiaries of Semirara Mining and Power Corp., received ISO certifications from Certification International Philippines.
SCPC and SLPGC obtained ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management System) and OHSAS 18001:2007 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) certifications last October. The certifications will be valid for three years, subject to the results of semi- annual surveillance audits.
“These ISO certifications demonstrate the commitment of SCPC and SLPGC to quality processes, environmental conservation, and personnel health and safety,” said SMPC President and COO Victor A. Consunji.
ISO 9001:2015 Is the revised international standard that demonstrates the ability of an organization to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements while ISO 14001:2015 refers to the revised management systems standard that responds to latest trends in identifying and managing environmental risks and impact.
OHSAS 18001:2007 is an internationally applied British standard for sound occupational health and safety performance.
SMPC is the only power producer in the country that owns and mines its own fuel source, allowing it to generate affordable and reliable baseload power for the Luzon and Visayas grids.
