ISO14001 – Environmental Management Standard
WHAT IS ISO 14001?
ISO 14001 is the international standard for environmental management of businesses. It prescribes controls for those activities that have an effect on the environment, including the use of natural resources, work environment, handling and treatment of waste, energy consumption & recycling.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF IMPLEMENTING ISO 14001?
Implementing an Environmental Management System is a systematic way to identify and control the effects your company has on the environment. Cost savings can be made through improved efficiency. This is achieved by detecting ways to minimise waste and dispose of it more consciously and effectively, and by learning how to use energy more efficiently. It verifies compliance with current legislation and makes insurance coverage more accessible.
INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
ISO14001 management systems can be integrated with other systems such as ISO9001 & OHSAS18001.
