ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems (EMS)

ISO 14001 is the most recognized standard for environmental management as it helps businesses effectively control the environmental impacts of their different processes, from procurement and storage to product development and distribution.

Whether businesses are developing or modifying their existing environmental management systems for ISO 140001 certification, standard implementation will help them achieve regulatory compliances and ensure their operations are environmentally sustainable.

The objective of ISO 14001 is to specify requirements for an environmental management system (EMS) and enable the development and implementation of policy and objectives that will take into account legal and other requirements that need to be met, and information about significant environmental aspects.

ISO 14001 applies to environmental aspects that are identified as controllable and able to be influenced. It does not state specific environmental performance criteria.

ISO 14001 is based on the methodology known as Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA). PDCA can be briefly described as follows:

Plan: Establish the objectives and processes necessary to deliver results in accordance with the organisation’s environmental policy.

Do: Implement the processes.

Check: Monitor and measure processes against environmental policy, objectives, targets, legal and other requirements, and report the results.

Act: Take actions to continually improve the performance of the environmental management system.

ISO 14001 is the most internationally recognized environmental management system standard.
