What is this standard about?

BS EN ISO 14031:2013 is the international standard outlining recommendations on the design and use of Environmental Performance Evaluation (EPE) within an organization.

Who is this standard for?

  • All organizations, regardless of type, size, location and complexity
  • Environmental consultants and specialists
  • Environmental Management Systems managers
  • Data/information management/systems support managers

Why should you use this standard?

This standard sets out guidelines for the EPE process enabling organizations to measure, evaluate and communicate their environmental performance using key performance indicators, based on reliable and verifiable information.

Data and information generated by EPE can be used by an organization to implement other environmental management tools and techniques in a coherent, transparent and cost effective way, e.g. other standards such as those relating to environmental management systems ISO 14001ISO 14004, ISO 14005, ISO 14006 - to environmental declarations ISO 14025 - environmental labelling ISO 14024 and life cycle assessment ISO 14040.

The guidance in ISO 14031:2013 can be used to support an organization's own approach to EPE, including its commitments to compliance with legal and other requirements, the prevention of pollution, and continual improvement.
