ISO 14001 has been developed in response to rising concerns about the effect businesses and thier activities are having on ourselves and the world in which we live. This has lead to an increasing number of studies of enviornmental impacts and the growth of enviornmental standards and regulations.
ISO 14001 is an international standard that provides a framework for organisations of any size to control and improve enviornmental performance via an Enviornmental Management System (EMS). More and more organisations are seeking to demonstrate sound enviornmental performance as the issue has gained ground in recent years and will continue to do so. In many sectors certification to ISO 14001 has almost become a de facto requirement for trade, as organisations in the supply chain seek to mitigate enviornmental risk.
ISO 14001 involves:
- Developing an enviornmental policy
- Identifying enviornmental aspects and impacts
- Planning how to fulfil the enviornmental policy
- Implementing means to control and mitigate enviornmental risk
- Checking effectiveness of the EMS and making improvements
- Reviewing the EMS with top management
These elements will drive your organisation to continually develop your enviornmental performance and achieve greater recognition in the marketplace you operate in.
