ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
ISO 14001 Auditors
ISO 14001 environmental management systems (EMS) is an internationally recognised standard.
Environmental credibility in the business world is a very important factor in national and international competitiveness. Over the last five years we have seen a surge in companies making big strides to improve their environmental processes and lower their carbon footprint.
This international standard is applicable to any organisation, regardless of its size or sector. It can help support environmental objectives to reduce your carbon footprint, reduce waste and to use more sustainable resources. Analysing the efficiencies of all these elements can result in cost savings across the business, as well as opening up new business opportunities.
Implementing effective recycling and waste reduction initiatives and using sustainable resources not only helps the environment but can also improve your profitability and reputation.
Why Become ISO 14001 Certified?
ISO 14001 is part of the ISO 14000 family of environmental management standards established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The standard outlines the requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS) that helps organisations identify, manage, monitor, and continually improve their environmental performance.
There is an ever-increasing focus on the environmental impacts of businesses and their products and services, and ISO 14001 is one way in which to demonstrate how your organisation cares about its environmental impact.
