Certifying your Environmental Management System to ISO 14001 with the Carbon Trust provides independent assurance from the world’s leading authority on sustainability and carbon management.
ISO 14001 helps organizations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.
International Organization for Standardization
ISO 14001 is an Environmental Management System (EMS) standard that outlines the best way for an organisation to improve their environmental performance. The standard can help your organisation meet environmental objectives, comply with environmental legislation, reduce carbon emissions, etc.
An EMS forms a framework for achieving best practice in environmental management through the development of an environmental policy, identifying risks and opportunities, managing significant environmental aspects and impacts, establishing organisational controls and processes for monitoring and reviewing performance. This makes it easier for organisations to integrate environmental management into their day to day operations.
ISO 14001 can be utilised by large and small organisations whether public or private sector. It can be used by multinational organisations to establish a common methodology for managing environmental performance and identifying areas for improvements at all sites.
