ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems (EMS)

The objective of ISO 14001 is to specify requirements for an environmental management system (EMS) to enable you to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which you subscribe, and information about significant environmental aspects.

ISO 14001 applies to those environmental aspects that you identify as those which you can control and influence. 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 performance of the environmental management system.

ISO 14001 is the most recognized Environmental Management system standard internationally.

The level of detail and complexity of your environmental management system, the extent of documentation and the resources devoted to it depend on a number of factors, such as the scope of your system, the size of your organisation and the nature of your activities, products and services.
