ISO 14001 Environmental Management

ISO 14001 was first published in 1996 and specifies the actual requirements for an environmental management system. It applies to those environmental aspects which the organization has control and over which it can be expected to have an influence.

ISO 14001 is often seen as the corner stone standard of the ISO 14000 series. However, it is not only the most well known, but is the only ISO 14000 standard against which it is currently possible to be certified by an external certification authority. Having stated this, it does not itself state specific environmental performance criteria.

What’s in ISO 14001:

  • General requirements
  • Environmental policy
  • Planning implementation and operation
  • Checking and corrective action
  • Management review

This means you can identify aspects of your business that impact on the environment and understand those environmental laws that are relevant to your situation. The next step is to produce objectives for improvement and a management programme to achieve them, with regular reviews for continual improvement.  We can then periodically assess the system and, if compliant, register your company or site to ISO 14001.

Who is it relevant to?

Environmental impact is becoming an increasingly important issue across the globe, with pressure to minimize that impact coming from a number of sources: local and national governments, regulators, trade associations, customers, employees and shareholders. Social pressures are also building up from the growing array of interested parties, such as consumer, environmental and minority non-governmental organizations (NGOs), academia and neighbours.

ISO 14001 is relevant to every organization, including:

  • Single site to large multi-national companies
  • High risk companies to low risk service organizations
  • Manufacturing, process and the service industries; including local governments
  • All industry sectors including public and private sectors
  • Original equipment manufacturers and their supplier
