19 Andhra Pradesh Railway stations get ISO 14001 Certification

As we know that the entire world population is badly hit due to the Novel Coronavirus pandemic, or the COVID-19. A number of countries are now witnessing complete lockdown due to the severity of the infection. The fact can’t be negated that the lack of a healthy and safe environment paves way for the spread of epidemics like COVID-19. Hence, the significance of the environmental management system can never be overlooked. A perfect model of environmental management can be attained by conforming to a global environmental benchmark such as ISO 14001 Certification. 

In this regard, the Indian Railways Network has once again set an example. 19 Railway stations of the Southern Central Railways Network have now achieved the ISO 14001 Certification.
