ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM ISO 14001:2015
The ISO 14001 standard identifies an environmental management system (EMS) which sets out the requirements of an “environmental management system” of any organization and is part of the ISO 14000 series developed by ‘”ISO / TC 207″. The ISO 14001 certification demonstrates that the certified organization has an appropriate management system to monitor the environmental impacts of its activities, and shall systematically seek to improve in a coherent, effective and especially sustainable way. In a world where sustainability and corporate responsibility is ever more prevalent, ISO 14001 is a tried and tested approach for demonstrating you are committed to reducing environmental impact.
