Last updated 2nd September 2016. We are leading ISO 14001 consultants based in the UK. This particular certificate is becoming one of the world’s leading international standards for environmental management, and if you want to control the environmental impact of your business, ISO 14001 certification is almost certainly the route to follow.
With the focus of society increasingly on global warming and environmental impact, at both local and international level, these issues are becoming of greater importance to business.
What is ISO 14001?
ISO 14001 is an Environment Management System (EMS), which is a tool for managing the impact of an organisation’s activities on the environment. It takes a pro-active approach, and allows business to consider environmental issues before they become a problem, rather than reacting to them afterwards.
Our ISO 14001 consultants assist businesses to establish those operations that have a negative impact on the environment and to minimise their unwanted effects as determined necessary.
So these standards can be a powerful tool for businesses to both improve their environmental performance, and enhance their business efficiency.
What are the benefits of ISO 14001 Certification?
- Cost effective – reduces utility bills and waste streams
- Higher control of risk and better planning
- Ensures compliance with environmental legislation
- Builds awareness of the environment among employees
- Improved corporate image with customers and the public
- Reduce environmental liability
- Removes a barrier to working with government bodies, local authorities and larger commercial businesses who often prefer their suppliers to be ISO14001 registered
Our expert ISO 14001 Consultants
We will work with you to design, document, implement and operate a simple environmental management system (EMS0 which meets all the certification requirements of ISO 14001.
We will design the system around your existing business and environmental practices whereever possible, helping you to establish the necessary controls to ensure you are in compliance with relevant legislation, and enabling you identify and attend to areas where you do not comply to the ISO 14001 certification standard.
Once the system has been implemented, we will recommend you for the initial audit visit from a UKAS accredited external assessment body. We will then arrange for your system to be fully audited by one of our own auditors, and the final ISO 14001 requirements will usually take place within 3 months of the initial audit visit (depending upon the external assessment body).
