ISO 14001:2015 is the world's foremost standard for environmental management
What is ISO 14001?
BS EN ISO 14001 puts environmental management at the heart of your organization’s operations to help meet environmental regulations and improve efficiency and environmental performance.
Suitable for all sizes of organization, this best-selling standard maps out a framework that a company or organization can follow to set up an effective environmental management system (EMS) including policies and objectives. It can help your organization reduce its environmental impact as well as grow your business.
What you need to know about the ISO 14001:2015 revision
ISO 14001 has undergone its first major revision since 1996 to ensure that it continues to serve organizations, maintain its relevance in today’s market place and meet environmental challenges of the future. The revised standard introduces a new high level structure of terms, definitions and headings that will be the same across all management systems standards. This should make it easier for users of several standards, for example BS EN ISO 9001, to integrate their management system standards.
