An Environmental Management System - ISO 14001:2015

February 20, 2017

The ISO 14000 family of standards offered by the International Organization for Standardization provides the tools for companies of all kinds looking to manage their environmental and ethical responsibilities to its employees, customers and the world. ISO 14001:2015 focuses on creating an environmental management systems to achieve this. 

 

Many business, while they can benefit from having a certified environmental manual, do not have one. This will change over the next couple of years, as environmental restrictions and pressure from government, force companies to better manage how they handle the environment.

 

By completing ISO 14001 certification your organization can assure all company touchpoint that your environmental management system (ENV or EMS) meets international industry specific environmental standards. 

 

Key benefits of the ISO 14001 standard include:
  • Develop the corporate image and credibility, help create your company brand;

  • Identify cost savings related to resource allocation, waste and energy management;

  • Ensure legislative awareness and compliance;

  • Improve environmental performance of supply chain and pre-qualification activities;

  • Protect the company, assets, shareholders and directors through environmental due diligence;

 

Having a well-defined Energy Management System (EMS) will provide your organization with a procedural approach to environmental compliance. In some jurisdictions, certification may lead to a reduction in the number of inspections required for obtaining environmental related permits. 

 

ISO 14001 is also compatible with other management standards such as your Quality Management system (ISO 9001) and  Health and Safety Management System (OHSAS18001).
