BS EN ISO 14001 Implementation
The primary aim of an Environmental Management System is to protect our increasingly fragile environment, but it does much more besides.
ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised standard for environmental management systems. It enables any company to review and improve its environmental management in a structured and effective way.
Organisations that take environmental issues seriously are less likely to incur significant liabilities or expose themselves to damaging publicity. Compliance with ISO 14001 helps you to identify problems before they happen and demonstrate to all stakeholders that you are an environmentally responsible organisation.
Environmental policies are good for business. If properly practiced and clearly communicated, they will reduce risks and improve efficiencies, customer and public relations. Better use of energy, careful selection of raw materials and controlled recycling of waste products all contribute to the bottom line, securing vital competitive advantage.
Proof of a responsible approach is fast becoming a key purchasing criteria. Environmentally aware organisations prefer to do business with like-minded companies including those who demonstrate their commitment through internationally recognised standards such as ISO 14001.
More and more businesses are benefiting from the savings that good environmental management can bring - and you don’t have to sell any more products or services to reap the rewards!
