ISO 14001

Environmental Management System Certification

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is internationally recognised as the leading environmental management system (EMS) standard and is suitable for organisations of all sizes.

The ISO 14001 standard provides a systematic framework for integrating environmental management practices by supporting environmental protection, pollution prevention, waste minimisation, as well as energy and materials consumption reduction.

In addition to implementing ISO 14001, many organisations choose to further improve their environmental performance management by enacting the European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS).

Why is environmental management important?

Organisations certified to ISO 14001 demonstrate their commitment to continuous improvement and reduced environmental impact. The certificate can significantly improve your bargaining position when taking part in public and private green procurement tenders. As consumers are becoming increasingly aware of environmental and ecological issues, ISO 14001 certification helps your brand stand out as a responsible provider.

Companies that implement the ISO 14001 EMS aim to minimize wastage, from materials to energy consumption, throughout the supply chain and can thereby reduce cost. 

Beyond demonstrating that your organisation is committed to sustainability, ISO 14001 certification may also reduce the risk of regulatory and environmental liabilities.
