ISO 14001 | Environmental Management Systems
ISO 14001 enables your organisation to work toward a greener environmental footprint.
The ISO 14001 standard is the internationally recognised that provides practical tools for organisations to manage their environmental responsibilities. It can help any organisation, regardless of its activity or sector, map a framework that they can use to develop a competitive environmental management system. It is an effective means for identifying and systematically reducing potentially harmful impacts on the environment.
ISO 14001 focuses on improving environmental performance rather than improving the management system. The Environmental Management Systems standard stresses leadership’s engagement and a need to understand the context of ISO 14001 to better manage risk and promote environmental management.
ISO 14001 – Key elements
- Strategic Environmental Management
