Certified ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment), ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety) since 2020, Altea Energy has been assessed in March 2023 by an independent certification body, Interface NRM*, and is pleased to announce that the company has passed the renewal of its 3 ISO accreditations for all its subsidiaries.
A QHSE management system that meets ISO requirements
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certifications are international standards that establish quality, safety, efficiency and sustainability criteria for products and services worldwide.
“We are delighted with the conclusions of this external audit, which validates our ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 recertification for the next three years. This attests that we have succeeded in setting up a management system that meets the many ISO requirements: quality and continuous improvement, contribution to the reduction of our carbon footprint and occupational health and safety management,” explains Pamela Bobillier, Business Transformation Director of Altea Energy.
A collective and responsible commitment focused on QHSE
ISO certifications are part of Altea Energy’s strategy to prioritize the satisfaction and health and safety of all, which is a collective and responsible commitment since its creation in 2008.
Altea Energy invests and deploys QHSE operational procedures in order to improve satisfaction and preserve the health and safety of all. This QHSE policy aims to create a safe and healthy working environment for its teams as well as for the consultants involved, and to improve it continuously.
“Each year, we mobilize hundreds of consultants on high-risk sites and in extreme conditions, on land and at sea. Our QHSE policy is therefore a major challenge that we deploy in all of the company’s departments, from top management to employees. This is essential to the success of our business as it allows us to systematically minimize losses and deliver value to all of our stakeholders”, explains Adjira Sayad, QHSE Manager of Altea Energy.
Continuously improving performance
Altea Energy is committed to meeting the requirements of its community of customers and consultants to continuously improve its processes.
“We have set up QHSE annual objectives, action plans and key performance indicators, broken down by department. We continuously monitor these objective criteria to measure our progress, and define and address our areas for improvement”, continues Pamela Bobillier.

This great achievement is a collective success that we share with the teams in all our subsidiaries. They are involved on a daily basis to respect and apply the processes we put in place. We would like to thank them all for their commitment to making Altea Energy an international company focused on quality, risk analysis and safety.”, explains Nicolas Kotliar, Co-founder and General Manager of Altea Energy.
