Improving Business’ Environmental Impact

There are three main reasons why ISO 14001 accreditation is a must for businesses:

  • – It provides a detailed framework for companies to manage their environmental responsibilities through setting objectives, targets and improving on their practices
  • – It can help your business meet legal and regulatory requirements for environmental management;
  • – It is often a prerequisite of many customers and in some industries, like the building industry, it might be required to win work.

Who Can Get ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 certification is available not only for Environmental Management Systems but also for several specific environmental aspects like:

  • Pollution Prevention
  • Energy Management
  • Environmental Labeling and Product Certification Systems
  • Environmental Performance Evaluation, Auditing and Reporting Systems
  • Risk Management Systems (e.g. Occupational Safety & Health)

You can implement an environmental management system to any level of detail, depending on your business and resources. For example, you may want a simple EMS that only has basic key performance indicators in place to help demonstrate responsibility. Or you might need a more extensive EMS which covers all aspects of environmental management within the organization.
