TUI AG has been certified in accordance with the international environmental management standard ISO 14001. An Environmental Management System (EMS) was implemented at the TUI AG head office in Hannover in 2002.
The ISO 14001 environmental management standard defines EMS-related requirements recognized worldwide. The system ensures one of the goals pursued in all business operations is to achieve a permanent improvement in the Company’s environmental performance and a continual reduction in environmental impacts.
On the basis of systematic environmental monitoring, new objectives are set every year. Implementation of these objectives is reviewed both internally and externally, based on compliance with all environmental laws and regulations.
Both in-house environmental protection (e.g. waste management, energy supply) and the Group-wide EMS (e.g. climate protection, biodiversity strategy) have been awarded this environmental certificate recognized worldwide.
Energy Management & Health/Safety Protection
The energy management system (ISO 50001) and the occupational health and safety protection system (OHSAS 18001) of TUI Business Services were recertified in October 2014.
In order to obtain ISO 50001 certification, an energy monitoring system has to be launched, based on an inventory of the main energy consumers and the design of a counter and evaluation system to monitor consumption. This makes it possible to set specific corporate targets regarding energy savings.
The TUI Group’s health and safety activities extend beyond the legal requirements. Activities include briefings, hazard assessments, hazardous substance registers and training schemes for health and safety officers, first aid and evacuation assistants and fire protection officers.
