ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised standard for Environmental Management, published in 2015.
ISO 14001 looks at your environmental impact as a company and at ways of monitoring and potentially reducing these impacts to make yourself greener and as environmentally friendly as possible. It can also help you to grow sustainably while reducing the environmental impact of this growth.
Find all the information you need to ensure that your business is meeting the new standard below:
What is ISO 14001 and what does Environmental Management mean?
ISO 14001 is a standard recognised internationally, providing guidance for businesses on how to put in place an effective environmental management system in the workplace – and how to remain commercially viable while doing so. The standard is designed to help businesses to meet environmental responsibilities and mitigate the impact that it has on the environment through a number of different measures.
The ISO 14000 group of regulations (into which ISO 14001 falls) is a set of environmental management standards which sets out guidelines to help you and your company meet legal and regulatory minimum standards, as well as your consumers’ ever more stringent expectations of corporate responsibility, particularly when it comes to environmental responsibility.
If you’re looking to improve environmental responsibility in your business and want to implement an environmental management plan to do so, then ISO 14001 is the gold standard!
In what ways will ISO 14001 benefit my business?
Of course, for many of us, environmental responsibility is a pressing moral and personal concern, but in addition to this, adhering to the ISO 14001 standards will help your business in lots of ways.
These include reducing your waste and energy use throughout the business, helping to keep costs low, and improving efficiency which can also cut your energy bill, by using only what is necessary.
In meeting the standards you will also score some points in terms of new business opportunities; you’ll be able to boast about your compliance as a positive attribute of the business, and meeting legal requirements will also serve to increase the trust that stakeholders and customers place in your business.
Finally, you’ll stay ahead of the game – by keeping on top of developments at this relatively early stage you can ensure that your business is adequately prepared for the constantly changing business landscape.
