What is ISO 14001:2015?

ISO 14001:2015 is an international standard that sets out the criteria for an environmental management system (EMS). It helps businesses and organizations manage their environmental responsibilities by mapping out a framework that enables them to establish an effective EMS.

Is ISO 14001 for me?

ISO 14001 can be applied to any organization, whatever its type, size or sector. The standard does not specify what your organization’s aims and objectives should be; it specifies the framework needed for maximum effectiveness.

What are the benefits of an ISO 14001:2015 EMS?

An EMS assures company management and employees, as well as external stakeholders, that your organization is measuring environmental impacts and making necessary improvements.

Implementing an ISO 14001 EMS enables your organization to:

  • Manage environmental aspects effectively
  • Prevent pollution
  • Minimize energy and resource usage, reducing operating costs
  • Achieve continuous improvement in environmental performance
  • Ensure compliance with environmental legislation
  • Reduce the risk of penalties and avoid litigation
  • Increase stakeholder confidence
  • Improve employee morale
  • Develop new business opportunities with environmentally aware customers
