What is ISO 14001?
ISO 14001 is an international standard that contains the requirements for an organisation’s Environmental Management System (EMS).
The standard follows the standard management system structure defined in Annex SL. The structure includes:
- Context of the organisation
- Performance evaluation
Why should my organisation implement ISO 14001?
Many companies see the introduction of a EMS as a major step forward in complying with environmental laws and regulations and improving their brand perception. Others simply react to customer and contractual requirements. Benefits of implementing an EMS that meets the requirements of ISO 14001 include:
- Improved environmental performance
- Improved brand perception
- Improved process performance
- Potential for reduction in waste and energy usage
Why should my organisation apply for ISO 14001 certification?
Satisfactory assessment of your management system leads to the award of a certificate of registration. The value of a certificate of registration and its credibility depends on the certification body and the status that have in the market place.
