Stockholm Spine Center's environmental management system has been reviewed by SEMKO Certification AB and complies with the requirements of SS-EN ISO 14001:2004. Certification was issued on September 13, 2007.

Since then, the environmental management system has been reviewed annually by an external environmental auditor, and the 14th of september 2013 a recertification took place. This is valid until the 13th of september 2016.

The Environmental Team normally meets on a monthly basis. Internal audits are conducted annually when the management system is also evaluated. The evaluation comprises of an assessment of improvement possibilities and the need for changes in the management system, for example, the content of the environmental policy and environmental goals (see below).

Our environmental goals aim to reduce washing, the use of consumables, the use and prescription of pharmaceuticals, and goods transport.
