Environmental management systems
Considering the growing global awareness of climate change and environmental issues, organizations need effective environmental management systems to help ensure their continued competitiveness over time.
Environmental management is a organization’s ability to demonstrate that it plans and controls its impact on the environment during the production and distribution of goods or services. The organization’s attitude is reflected in the consumption of raw materials, the choice and use of energy sources, the application of technology, the management of emissions and industrial waste, as well as communication solutions and the transportation and distribution of products.
What is ISO 14001:2015?
ISO 14001: 2015 is an international environmental management system standard developed using the ISO High Level Framework (HLS). It is common to all new ISO standards and ensures the best compatibility of the ISO 14001 standard with other standards, thus facilitating the implementation and integration of the management system, providing more value to users.
ISO 14001: 2015 is an international standard that can be applied to large or small companies in any industry. It does not set specific environmental performance requirements and can therefore be used at any stage of a organization’s environmental management. This standard will fit well with the ISO 9001 quality management system if implemented.
The most important elements that organizations must take into account in ISO 14001 certification are the commitment to continuous improvement and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.
ISO 14001 certification will ensure compliance with procurement qualification requirements in cases where the existence of an environmental management system is a criterion for the selection of tenderers.
