ISO 14001 – Environmental Management


Every day we are reminded that the environment is a finely balanced system. Terms such as global warming, pollution, soil and groundwater contamination, hazardous waste disposal, etc. continue to be a global concern.

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001:2015 helps organizations improve their environmental performance through the effective use of resources and reduction in wastes to gain a competitive advantage, and more importantly, gain the trust of customers, the public and community at large.   The idea is to establish a systematic framework to identify, manage, monitor and control environmental impacts pertaining to an organizations processes, products and services while improving efficiencies.

Closely related to other ISO management system standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 45001, this standard is designed to address the delicate balance between maintaining profitability and reducing environmental impacts.  With the commitment of your entire organization, it can enable you to achieve both objectives.

The Benefits of ISO 14001:

→ Identifies cost savings with a focus on resources, waste and energy management
