ISO 14001 Environmental Management

ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised standard for managing the environmental impacts of businesses. It prescribes controls for those activities that have an effect on the environment which includes the use of natural resources, handling and treatment of waste, and energy consumption.

The standard will guide your business through the controls needed for any of your activities that have an effect on the environment. This includes the use of natural resources, handling and treatment of waste and energy consumption. Implementation of an environmental management system will help your business maintain legal and industry compliance and meet and even possibly exceed your customer requirements. It also drives continual improvement in the environmental performance of your business and provides a framework for a systematic approach to setting and achieving environmental objectives and targets.
