ISO 14001:2015

ISO14001:2015 is the internationally recognised standard for environmental management.

Its design is appropriate for any business regardless of size or sector, providing a systematic approach to relevant legal compliance and refined performance. Companies are required to consider all environmental issues relevant to their operations to enable effective management of their responsibilities.

Businesses face increasing pressure from customers, regulators and government bodies to reduce their environmental impact. ISO14001 encourages continual improvement and demonstrates a company is committed to addressing environmental concerns. It shows they are proactively working to minimise their impact by looking at waste production and handling, climate change, mitigation and adaptation, carbon footprint, resource use and overall efficiency.

While the standard doesn’t specify particular criteria, it does encompass the environmental issues that can be controlled or influenced. Increased prominence of ethically conscious management within a company, strategic planning and a stronger commitment to proactive initiatives all aid in improving environmental performance.

There are significant benefits in obtaining ISO 14001:2015 certification:

  • Establishes compliance with current statutory and regulatory requirements, demonstrating you are an ethical and credible company.
  • Supplies a suitable framework to guide businesses when developing an effective environmental management system.
  • Provides a competitive and financial advantage through increased efficiency and a reduction in unnecessary costs.
  • Enhances company reputation as a result of strategic communication of environmental policies, appealing to pre-existing and potential customers.
  • Facilitates the elimination of excessive paperwork in the tender, pre-qualification and preferred supplier process.
  • Puts the environment at the heart of corporate culture, providing assurance that environmental impact is being actively measured and improved.
