What is ISO 14001?
The ISO 14001 is the international standard for environmental management system (EMS). It aims to help organizationsminimize or reduce the environmental footprint of their business and to decrease the pollution and waste an organization produced that may affect the environment and assists with compliance to applicable environmental laws and regulations.
Increasingly stringent legislations have led to the need for organizations to work to an internationally recognized standard that helps to identify and control environmental impact of an organization’s activities, products or services, and to improve its environment performance. Crucially, ISO 14001 provides a systematic approach to setting environmental objectives and targets, providing a framework to achieve these goals.
ISO 14001 certification provides an organization’s customers, suppliers, employees and other stakeholders with evidence of the operations commitment to environment protection.
