ISO 14001 is the world’s most recognised environmental management system standard. It has an uptake of 300,000 companies worldwide and an uptake of 11% of that figure annually.
Most organisations realise that being certified to an environmental management system helps promote their profile as an organisation. It also demonstrates care about the environment and it also helps to get them on clients tender lists. In order to comply with the standard you will therefore need to produce a policy and provide a set of procedures. These will detail how you will manage environmental risk.
How we can help
We can help with development, training and implementation of a whole or part of an environmental management system. If you are already ISO 14001 certified we can help with internal audits, training, risk assessment and legal registers and provide consultancy support through the cycle of planning, implementation, internal auditing and reviewing common to all management systems. We have a good track record of helping companies scope and implement their environmental management system in accordance to the standard and can also help you through the external certification process. ISO 14001 can also be implemented as part of a broader sustainability consulting programme.
