Why ISO 14001?
ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for an Environmental Management System (EMS). It does not state requirements for environmental performance, but sets out a framework that your company can follow in order to benefit the environment and also improve efficiency by reducing costs.
ISO 14001 certification can be used by any organization that wants to validate its improvement of resource efficiency, waste reduction, and drive down costs.
Benefits of ISO 14001 certification to your organization
The revised standard will ensure that environmental management is now completely integrated and aligned with the business strategies of your organization. This strategic focus will result in optimizing the performance of your EMS making it more sustainable, saving money and helping preserve the world’s resources for future generations.
Greater involvement in the management system by the leadership team will ensure the whole organization will be motivated towards the organizations goals and objectives.
Organizations will need to take steps to protect the environment and improve environmental performance. Good environmental management will reduce the risk of regulatory fines and can often identify opportunities to save money.
With the new structure applicable to all new ISO management systems standards it will be much easier to implement multiple, integrated management systems.
