ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It can help an organisation improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
It can be easily integrated into an existing ISO management system I.E 9001, and is suitable for organisations of all types and sizes, whether they are private, not-for-profit or governmental.
It requires that an organisation considers all environmental issues relevant to its operation, such as air pollution, water and sewage issues, waste management, soil contamination, climate change mitigation and adaptation and resource use and efficiency.
As a result of implementing this into your business you can expect to be able to:
- Demonstrate your compliance with current and future statutory and regulatory requirements.
- Increase leadership involvement and engagement of employees.
- Improve company reputation and the confidence of stakeholders through strategic communication.
- Achieve strategic business aims by incorporating environmental issues into business management.
- Provide a competitive and financial advantage through improved efficiencies and reduced costs.
- Encourage better environmental performance of suppliers by integrating them into the organisations business systems.
Last week we certified clients from the landscaping and storage industries in Telford and Sheffield, who were looking to achieve their business aims by incorporating environmental issues into their business management.
