Environmental Accountability

Since its inception as a corporate entity in 2001, MISI has steadfastly maintained its ISO 14001 certification—the international standard for environmental management systems (EMS) designed to exercise effective control over the impact our operations have on the environment.

In the quest to confront global warming and preserve a healthy environment for future generations, all companies are expected to address the EMS challenge. Against this backdrop, we operate our EMS in accordance with the standards defined in ISO 14001, and aggressively use it from an environmental perspective and as an all-encompassing management initiative.

In addition, we observe Environment CSR Month every year, conducting various beneficial and consciousness-raising activities.
