ISO 14001 is a prominent management system standard that outlines the requirements for establishing and maintaining an Environmental Management System (EMS). This certification is crucial in controlling environmental aspects, minimizing impacts, and ensuring compliance with legal regulations.
To complement ISO 14001, there are ISO 14004 Environmental Management Systems – General Guidelines on principles, systems, and support techniques. This comprehensive standard addresses various aspects, including establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continuously improving an EMS.
By obtaining ISO 14001 certification, you gain valuable insights into the weaknesses of your environmental management system and establish a foundation for an ongoing and measurable improvement process. This certification enables you to mitigate environmental risks, conserve natural resources, and enhance your environmental performance sustainably.
