ISO 14001 Environmental Management System
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps organizations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.
ISO 14001 includes the need for continual improvement of an organization’s systems and approach to environmental concerns. The standard has recently been revised under ISO 14001:2015 version, with key improvements such as the increased prominence of environmental management within the organization’s strategic planning processes, greater input from leadership and a stronger commitment to proactive initiatives that boost environmental performance.
The International Environmental Management System Standard (EMS) is a benchmark to objectively demonstrating that the organization is environmentally conscious, responsible and seeks to improve environmental performance. This EMS may be combined with other systems such as ISO 9001 QMS, ISO 13485 MDD, ISO 22000 FSMS, HACCP MS and ISO 45001 (OHSAS 18001) providing the basis for an integral management system (IMS).
ISO 14001:2015 will respond to the latest trends, including the increasing recognition by companies of the need to factor in both external and internal elements that influence their environmental impact. The changes also ensure that the standard is compatible with other management system standards.
Key emphasis of ISO 14001 Environmental Management System:
