AboitizPower subsidiary AP Renewables, Inc. (APRI) successfully retained its Integrated Management System (IMS) certification, which covers Quality Management (ISO 9001:2015), Environmental Management (ISO 14001:2015), and Occupational Health and Safety (OHSAS 18001:2007).

TรœV Rheinland Philippines, an affiliate of TรœV Rheinland and one of the ย leading certification bodies for various international standards in the country, issued the recertification after completing a thorough review of the processes and practices across APRIโ€™s power plants in the provinces of Albay, Batangas, and Laguna in November 2018.

โ€œThis only proves that the organization is committed to improve their management systems and that they conform to world-class standards,โ€ Tristan Arwen Loveres, TรœV Rheinland Philippines Managing Director, said.

โ€œOur company is extremely proud of this milestone, which reflects our solid commitment of providing ample and reliable power supply at a reasonable and competitive price while mitigating environmental risks and providing equal importance to the safety of our employees and the welfare of communities we serve,โ€ Alex B. Coo, APRI President and COO, said.

In 2015, APRI received its first IMS certification. Since then, the company has continued its work beyond compliance and created a culture of excellence as part of the way of life of its employees. This year, APRI has likewise celebrated the milestone of twenty million aggregate man-hours without any lost time due to accidents.

In 2019, APRI aims to upgrade its Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Certification to ISO 45001:2018, which will strengthen the companyโ€™s opportunity and risk management in terms of OHS.

Emmanuel V. Rubio, AboitizPower Chief Operating Officer, said that this recertification is in line with AboitizPowerโ€™s ultimate goal to be the power partner and neighbor of choice of its stakeholders.

โ€œAs we strive to become the power partner and neighbor of choice of our stakeholders, we continue to improve our systems and processes, ensuring that these are up-to-date and aligned with globally recognized standards and best practices,โ€ Rubio said.|
