ISO-14001 Environment Management System

What is an Environment Management System?

An environmental management system, also known as an EMS, consists of the policies, processes, plans, practices, and records that define the rules that govern how your organisation interacts with the environment. This system must be customised for your business, as only then your organisation will have the exact legal requirements and environmental interactions that correspond to your unique business processes. However, the ISO 14001 requirements provide a framework and a set of guidelines for developing your environmental management system so that you do not omit any essential elements required for a successful EMS.

ISO 14001 Standard

ISO 14001 standard is used to measure the impact of an organisation on the environment. It provides a framework and guidelines for creating your environmental management system so that you do not miss important elements for an EMS to succeed.

ISO 14001 helps manage environmental aspects, fulfil compliance obligations, and address risks and opportunities.

An effective Environment Management System (EMS) can provide businesses with a significant competitive advantage in a world of rising resource costs and heightened environmental consciousness. Certification to ISO 14001 will ensure that your organisation is focused on its environmental impact and is supported by efficient management processes.

As a part of the ISO family of standards, ISO 14001 can easily be integrated with other management system standards, most commonly ISO 9001.

With environmental impact gaining significant importance, an environmental management system can give you a competitive advantage.


Why Your Business Needs an ISO 14001 Environment Management System?

Taking care of our environment and preventing our businesses from negatively impacting it are two of the most significant challenges businesses face today. One of the greatest advantages of implementing an EMS is the recognition of being among the firms that care enough about the environment to reduce their carbon footprint. This can improve your company’s relationships with customers, the public, and the community, but it also has other advantages.

In addition to a positive public image, many businesses can save money by implementing an environmental management system. This can be accomplished by reducing incidents that can lead to liability costs, obtaining insurance at a lower price, and conserving input materials and energy through reduction efforts. This enhancement in cost management is an advantage that cannot be overlooked when deciding to implement an environmental management system.
