HART Achieves ISO Certification

The Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART), Tampa, FL, recently became the only public transit system in Florida—and only the 13th in the U.S.—to achieve official ISO 14001 certification for its Environmental Sustainability and Management System.

“Developing an ISO 14001-certified Environmental and Sustainability Management System program provides assurance to our community, stakeholders and employees that our operations and services are environmentally friendly,” said Jeff Seward, HART chief financial officer and the agency’s sustainability champion.

ISO is an independent, non-governmental organization that brings together experts to share knowledge and develop standards that provide solutions to global challenges such as environmental management.

HART began the certification process in 2013, when it was accepted to FTA’s two-year ISO 14001 EMS Institute at Virginia Tech.
