ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard that sets out how you can go about putting in place an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). The standard is designed to address the delicate balance between maintaining profitability and reducing environmental impact; with the commitment of your entire organisation, we can enable you to achieve both objectives.

Who is it relevant to?

ISO 14001 is relevant to every organisation, including:

  • Single site to large multi-national companies
  • High risk companies to low risk service organisations
  • Manufacturing, process, and the service industries; including local governments
  • All industry sectors including public and private sectors
  • Original equipment manufacturers and their suppliers

This standard is the easiest to achieve but by far the hardest to maintain. Your organisation needs specialist help to identify aspects of your business that impact on the environment and understand those environmental laws that are relevant to your situation. The next step is to produce objectives for improvement and a management programme to achieve them, with regular reviews for continual improvement.

Sustainability and environmental impact is becoming an increasingly important issue across the globe, with pressure to minimise that impact coming from many sources: local and national governments, regulators, trade associations, customers, employees, and shareholders. Social pressures are also building up from the growing array of interested parties, such as consumer, customer and neighbours.
