Environmental Management Systems
ISO 14001 is a globally-accepted Environmental Management System (EMS). It is applicable to any business who wants to be proactive in controlling their impact on the environment. ISO 14001 certification helps businesses achieve this goal by providing tools to help them control the environmental impact of their activities, products and services to achieve their environmental and economic goals. The ISO 14001 Standard is designed to support environmental protection and prevention of pollution in balance with socio-economic needs.
Because of its generic nature and universal acceptance, ISO 14001 has the potential to affect the environmental management practices of virtually every manufacturing company in the world — its impact even extends beyond the industrial realm. Any company whose products, services or day-to-day activities have an impact on the environment needs to be aware of ISO 14001.
