Environmental Management System

Committed to the Environment

The Yankee Gas Environmental Management System (EMS) is modeled after the internationally accepted ISO 14001 standard that provides a framework for ensuring a continual cycle of planning, implementing, reviewing and improving environmental performance.

Our EMS is an integral part of our company's overall management structure and addresses immediate and long-term environmental impacts. Our EMS also helps us anticipate and meet growing environmental performance expectations and ensures ongoing compliance with federal and state requirements.

The foundation of our EMS is the Northeast Utilities Environmental Policy, which provides a commitment to maintaining compliance, promoting environmental leadership, ensuring accountability for our actions, and practicing environmental stewardship. Each year we review the environmental impact of all of our activities, such as vehicle air emissions, the recycling of office paper and the use of natural resources. Then we establish objectives and targets to minimize these environmental impacts.
