With Earth Day approaching, and increasing pressure on businesses and corporations to demonstrate environmental responsibility, ISO 14001 controls in an Environmental Management System (EMS) can help to make your business more sustainable.
ISO 14001 Requirements and Processes
ISO standards in the 14001 family examine the impact that your organisation and processes are having on the environment, aiming to minimise negative consequences and safeguard the ecosystem. Although it has existed since 1996, the current framework was redeveloped in 2015, and aims to support your business in sustainable practices and continual improvement.
The Benefits of ISO 14001 Certification
Firstly, reducing wastage will reduce costs, making your budget more streamlined and avoiding unnecessary spending. ISO 14001 also makes your workplace safer and more sustainable in the long term. Showing ISO 14001 compliance also demonstrates your commitment to environmental consciousness, which is an attractive quality for suppliers and potential clients. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, conforming to ISO 14001 is making a commitment to protecting the planet, and safeguarding the environment for future generations.
