What is ISO 14001?

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.

You naturally want to maximise the success of your business – brand awareness, revenue and profits. At the same time, you want to minimise your impact on the environment.

If you use this ISO standard as a framework, you will be well placed to achieve these apparently conflicting objectives.

ISO 14001:2015 (normally just known as ISO 14001) is the international standard for Environmental Management Systems. It supports your efforts to reduce waste and energy consumption and limit your environmental impact. It also helps you meet increasingly stringent environmental legal requirements. Learn more here:

If you’re concerned that implementing an EMS makes you less competitive, then don’t be. The standard takes a sensible approach to balancing environmental and commercial objectives and ultimately, if done right, the impact is positive all round.

An effective EMS helps you achieve your legal, ethical and financial goals, giving you a competitive edge and contributing to the sustainability of the environment and your organisation. In short, ISO 14001 certification makes good business sense.
