ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Specification

ISO 14001 is a global management quality assurance standard that measures the responsiveness of management ideas towards creating a better environment. The popularity of the scheme has been deemed as Eco-friendly and in addition, the certification recognizes organizations that have developed management policy and institutional frameworks that are environmentally responsible. ISO14001 is an Environmental Management System (EMS) that looks at the capacity and absolute potential of organizations to reduce their impact on the ecological aspect surrounding the production of their products.

The futuristic nature of the certification proactively compels companies to consider their potential environmental impact before they become irretrievable. Whilst the certification allows organizations to reduce their impact on the environment negatively, the certification promotes efficient production systems that are not only cost effective but very productive indeed.

The following are the basic and elementary requirements for the ISO14001 certification:

  • Compliance with national and international environmental law and legislation without compromise.
  • Prevent pollution or negative environment impact by your organization in all its spheres and approaches.
  • Develop and effect environmental management systems in line with the global standards and benchmarks.
  • Develop mechanisms to control and communicate to industry players about possible environmental solutions by your organization and its existing environmental problems

The benefits of having an ISO 140001 certification are apparent.
The primary objective of ISO14001 is to provide an international binding management practice approach for effective Environmental Management Systems. The ideas here are instrumental in promoting an effective approach towards cleaner production. The benefits are listed and in fact, the certification guarantees each and every one:

  • An ISO 14001 certified company promotes effective production in the sense that certification helps you reduce your utility bills through cost effective production.
  • Provides an imperative and effective risk management tool that further helps to infer best planning and management practices for your organization.
  • The ISO 14001 certification is the intermediary player that will allow your organization to comply with the existing environmental law, legislation and policy.
  • Aside from improving your corporate image as an environmentally responsible organization, the ISO 14001 certification also develops the capacity for your staff to be aware of global environmental issues in the world.
  • The certification is very critical in providing the necessary platform of action for environmental impact assessment, crisis prevention and mitigation.
