ISO 14001 Consultancy

An Overview of ISO 14001

In 1996, the ISO 14001 environmental management was adopted and published as an internationally recognised environmental standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS).

ISO 14001 introduces a more efficient process for using resources and reducing waste and is the most successful environmental management standard globally and is applied to all types of organisations, whether public or private. As a result, there are more than 350,000 certifications to ISO 14001 in 171 countries.

History of the ISO 14001 Standard

The ISO 14000 family of Standards helps organisations to develop effective strategies to manage ecological issues and sets out guidelines to help you and your organisation meet legal and regulatory requirements, as well as your consumers’ ever more stringent expectations of corporate responsibility, particularly when it comes to environmental responsibility.

The ISO 14000 standards align with the ISO’s commitment to meeting climate change challenges and as a standard recognised internationally for guiding businesses on how to put an effective environmental management system in the workplace – and how to remain commercially viable while doing so.

What is the focus of ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 focuses on managing the environment and pollutants by reviewing your environmental impact as a company and monitoring and potentially reducing these impacts to make yourself greener and as environmentally friendly as possible. ISO 14001 can also help you grow sustainably whilst reducing the environmental impact of this growth.

ISO 14001 provides a framework for organisations to design and implement an effective environmental management system (EMS); the standard is designed to help businesses meet environmental responsibilities and mitigate their environmental impact through various measures.

What are the benefits of ISO 14001?

Environmental responsibility is a pressing moral and personal concern, so adhering to the ISO 14001 standards will help your business in endless ways.

Achieving ISO 14001 reduces business operating costs by implementing environmental procedures to help you conserve energy, reduce wastage, implement best practices, improve your organisation’s efficiency, and minimise the risks of ecological incidents.

In meeting the standards, you may open new business opportunities as suppliers, clients, and stakeholders want to deal with environmentally conscious businesses that meet legal and regulatory requirements.

ISO 14001 can help you stay ahead of your competition and ensure your business is adequately prepared for the constantly changing business landscape.
