ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard that sets out how to go about putting in place an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). The standard is designed to address the delicate balance between maintaining profitability and reducing environmental impact; with the commitment of the entire organization, it can enable both objectives to be achieved.
This means aspects of the business can be identified which impact on the environment and understand those environmental laws that are relevant to a given situation. The next step is to produce objectives for improvement and a management programme to achieve them, with regular reviews for continual improvement. The system can then periodically and independently assessed and, if compliant, be registered as a company or a site to ISO 14001.
