NEW! ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems Scheme Sheet
ISO 14001 has been developed in response to rising concern about the effect our activities and businesses are having on ourselves and the world in which we live. This has lead to an increasing number of studies of environmental impacts and the growth of environmental standards and regulations.
ISO 14001 is an international standard that provides a framework for organisations of any size to control and improve environmental performance via an Environmental Management System (EMS). More and more organisations are seeking to demonstrate sound environmental performance as the issue has gained ground in recent years and will continue to do so. In many sectors certification to ISO 14001 has almost become a de facto requirement for trade, as organisations in the supply chain seek to mitigate environmental risk.
ISO 14001 involves:
- Developing an environmental policy
- Identifying environmental aspects and impacts
- Planning how to fulfil the environmental policy
- Implementing means to control and mitigate environmental risk
- Checking effectiveness of the EMS and making improvements
- Reviewing the EMS with top management
These elements will drive your organisation to continually develop your environmental performance and achieve greater recognition in the marketplace you operate in.
