BS EN ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems
ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised voluntary management system standard for environmental management.
With the environment being recognised as a key agenda item for many businesses these days it is important to be able to both 'strategically' and 'operationally' manage operations in a responsible manner, with a view to continuously improve performance along the way.
Successful implementation of a management system certified to ISO 14001 demonstrates that your company is trying to improve its sustainability whilst responding to its compliance obligations relating to minimising negative environmental impacts from its operations.
The BS EN ISO 14001:2015 standard is built around the following top level structure, from Annex SL:
- Context of the Organisation
- Performance Evaluation
All management system standards will be built around this top level structure to enable better and easier integration with other standards and system elements, should a company wish to add these at a later date.
If you have an existing system currently certified to ISO 14001:2004 (now superseded) or if you're thinking of building a new system to be certified to the 2015 version of the standard, our consultants can help you find the best, cost-effective solution for your company's needs.
