ISO 14001:2015

ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT

ISO 14001

ISO 14001:2015 is the International Standard for Environmental Management Systems.

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001:2015 and its supporting standards focus on environmental systems requirements for organisations looking to manage their environmental responsibilities.

Using ISO 14001:2015 can provide assurance to company management and employees as well as to external stakeholders, that the environmental impact of any organisations activities, regardless of size, activity or sector, is being measured, monitored and improved.

Like all ISO management systems, ISO 14001 includes the need for continual improvement.

 

At the heart of the standard is an environmental policy and set of systems and principles that tie together an organisations commitment to consider all environmental issues relevant to its operations.

Considerations such as air pollution, water and sewage issues, waste management, soil contamination, climate change mitigation as well as resource use and efficiency can be effectively managed through the implementation of ISO 14001 within an organisation.

What ISO 14001 isnt...

Costly to achieve and obtain

Difficult to implement

Time consuming to maintain

Of little benefit to what we do

ISO 14001:2015 isnt Costly to achieve and Obtain

Obtaining certification doesn't need to break the bank...

While it may be a commercial decision for your organisation to certify to ISO 14001, the costs of implementation can be a lot less than you think. 

At IQS we provide a tailored yet cost effective approach to your certification, by supporting with proven systems and techniques to implementation that are quick to embed, but robust enough to support a results driven system.

Our "route to certification guide" outlines a brief summary of the key elements of the certification process, along with a set costing structure depending on your prganisation's structure and requirements. 

 

Knowing where to start can be one of the biggest challenges to certification.  At IQS we're here to guide you through the entire process, every step of the way.

We can supply bespoke form templates, and support in document creation to make the process of implementation as hassle free as possible. 

Our implementation package is focused on delivering an ISO 14001 compliant system, that is moulded to your organisations needs and requirements. We don't offer a one size fits all solution and only believe on solutions that make it easier to do, what you already do best.

ISO 14001:2015 isnt Difficult to implement

 

To achieve the results expected from your ISO 14001 system will require a level of commitment from all within the organisation, regardless of how big or small. 

That being said, a well embedded system should be one that is "part of the framework" so to speak. complying with the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 should be no more than "business as usual" for the majority of your activities.

 

A system developed with our support will do just that, with the added benefits of improving performance to achieve the results expected from implementing an ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System.
