company Alter is committed to operating its recycling facilities in an environmentally responsible manner. In keeping with this commitment, Alter has developed a comprehensive environmental program to manage risks associated with environmental aspects of recycling scrap metal. To standardize systems and programs across our operating facilities, in 2006, Alter implemented an Environmental Management System ("EMS") based on a continuous improvement model. Alter's EMS was certified to the internationally-recognized ISO 14001:2004 standard in early 2007, demonstrating strong commitment to environmental responsibilities by senior executives and throughout operational facilities.
