At U.S. Continental, our commitment to innovation doesn’t stop at the custom care products we create for our partners. In order to create a business climate that’s sustainable, we must prioritize the sustainability of our planet as well. As a trusted care products manufacturer and ISO 14001 certified firm, we have over 30 years of experience developing eco-friendly care products, solutions, practices known for their quality and environmental sustainability.
We prioritize manufacturing and private label packaging solutions with sustainable, eco-friendly practices in mind through the Environmental Policy and Environmental Management System (EMS).
As such, we recognize our responsibility to protect the safety of our employees and to preserve the environment.
Considering the purpose and context of our organization, and the condition of the environment in which we operate, our management team is committed to continually improving the EMS, according to compliance obligations, by following the principles and requirements of ISO 14001:2015.
We actively seek out 3rd party agencies, like EPA Safer Choice and USDA BioPreferred, to test our products and certify that they are safe and as environmentally-friendly as possible.
EPA/Safer Choice recognition does not constitute endorsement of this product. The Safer Choice label signifies that the product’s formula, as U.S. Continental has represented it to the EPA, contains ingredients with more positive human health and environmental characteristics than conventional products of the same type. EPA/Safer Choice relies solely on U.S. Continental, its integrity and good faith, for information on the product’s composition, ingredients and attributes. EPA/Safer Choice has not independently identified, that is, via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the product formula, nor evaluated any of U.S. Continental non-ingredient claims. EPA/Safer Choice provides its evaluation only as to the product’s human health and environmental characteristics, as specified in the Safer Choice Standard and based on currently available information and scientific understanding.
ISO 14001:2015 specifies the requirements for the environmental management system we utilize in order to enhance our own environmental performance. As such, this standard is intended for use in order to manage environmental responsibilities systemically, contributing to broader sustainability goals.
This standard helps us optimize our environmental management systems. Based on our environmental policy, intended outcomes of the EMS include:
Being ISO 14001:2015 certified enables us to systematically improve our environmental management practices, creating eco-friendly care products that contribute to a better tomorrow. As the International Organization for Standardization does not recognize baseless claims, we’re proud to be fully compliant to the organization’s continual improvements to its environmental standards.
