If Your Building Manufacturer Isn't ISO 14001 Certified, Kirby is your Solution!


Kirby is an ISO14001:2004 Certified Metal Building Manufacturer

The International Organizational for Standardization (ISO) 14001 is a standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS) that applies to all businesses, regardless of size, location, or income. The standard aims to continually reduce the environmental footprint of a business and to decrease the pollution and waste a business produces. The most recent version of ISO 14001 was released in 2004 by the ISO, which has representation from committees all over the world. As an ISO 14001 certified manufacturer, Kirby is dedicated to protecting our environment and reducing waste, while helping you improve your environment preformance. Green saves money. And that's something we can all bank on.


A company saying it is committed to environmental and sustainable concepts is one thing, achieving ISO 14001 certification is quite another.

In order for an organization to be awarded an 14001 certificate it must be externally audited by an accredited audit firm. For Kirby, this rigorous, demanding process took a full year and included education and training for every team member.

We invested months of planning and research to reach the goal. The process was challenging, to say the least, but an extremely worthwhile investment, as it taught us how to better use resources and protect the environment.



Implementing Environment Management Systems (EMS) yields both business and environmental benefits, including:

  • Improved environmental performance
  • Enhanced, sustainable compliance
  • Prevention of pollution and conservation of resources
  • Reduced risks
  • Satisfied customer demand for EMS requirements
  • Increased efficiency
  • Reduced cost
  • Enhanced teammate morale 
  • Greater teammate awareness of environmental issues and responsibilities

To continually improve the effectiveness of our Environmental Management System, Kirby is:

  • Pursuing pollution prevention and waste minimization opportunities
  • Investigating and developing technologies and operations that improve environmental performance
  • Regularly evaluating the Environmental Management System and making ongoing improvements.

Kirby Building Systems is making a difference in the world around us.
