ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard which outlines the criteria for an environmental management system (EMS). An organisation which is ISO 4001 certified demonstrates to future investors and customers that the environmental impact is being measured and continually improving. We can provide you with ISO 14001 certification, ensuring that you gain universal accreditation for environmental management.
ISO 14001 requirements
The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) is a worldwide organisation which helps businesses remain successful by providing a set of universal standards which all organisations can follow.
ISO 14001 is a standard set out by the ISO on how businesses should seek to implement a successful environmental management system. ISO 14001 was first published in 1996, specifying the requirements outlined by the ISO for an environmental management system. Though not a legal requirement, ISO 14001 is a accreditation which many public and private sector organisations look for before accepting work. Therefore, it is in the best interests for your business to ensure the requirements of the ISO 14001 environmental management system are being met.
ISO 14001 accreditation
The ISO 14001 standard is applicable to any business that meets the requirements of ISO 14001. Becoming ISO 14001 certified is something that every organisation should do, should they wish to:
Implement an efficient environmental management system
Maintain or improve a current environmental management system
Ensure compliance with the relevant environmental regulations
Be awarded an ISO 14001 certification, highlighting to customers, investors and employees that they are in compliance with the relevant laws
Highlight to customers, investors and employees that they are committed to a proactive environmental management system
The benefits of becoming ISO 14001 certified are vast. Not only will it enhance your reputation as an organisation which takes environmental issues seriously, but it will also save you money by encouraging a reduction of waste and a more efficient use of raw materials.
