Environmental Management System
With the worldwide growing concerns regarding our living environment, ISO 14001 is recognised more and more as an organisation's high level commitment to environmental protection.
Over 110,000 organisations in 138 countries have implemented ISO 14001 standard requirements in their environmental management system and have been assessed and certified. This demonstrates commitment to meet environmental challenges.
The ISO 14001 standard is primarily concerned with the approach of "environmental management" , which provides guidance to the organisation in order to:
- Minimise harmful effects on the environment caused by business activities; and
- Achieve continual improvement of environmental performance.
The standard is widely recognised as a "generic environmental management system standard" which can be applied to any organisation, large or small, whatever its product or service.
"Management system" refers to the organisation's structure for managing its processes or activities. This structure transforms input of resources into a product or service that meets the organisation's environmental objectives such as complying with regulations and resource effectiveness.
Environmental responsibility is an emotional and controversial subject around the world. The public wants protection and governments want regulation. Business is in the middle and pressed by both.
ISO 14001 was first issued in 1996 to meet market demands and provide business with a management system standard that demands top-level commitment to legislative compliance, pollution prevention and continual improvement that can be independently verified through accredited certification.
