The world we live in is more aware than ever about the negative impact that individuals, countries and organisations can have on the environment. ISO 14001 is key for businesses of all sizes and scope who are looking to control their environmental impact and make their day-to-day operations more sustainable.
Our team of dedicated ISO 14001 specialists in Essex provide organisations with the support they need to effectively implement a robust environmental management system and achieve ISO 14001 certification.
What is ISO 14001?
This internationally recognised standard for Environmental Management specifies requirements for an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). This provides the vital framework from which organisations can build upon to improve their environmental performance, establish sound environmental management policies and identify areas where changes need to be made.
Gaining ISO 14001 certification is a way to clearly demonstrate your organisations commitment to effectively managing its environmental impact and your ability to drive towards sustainability, meet regulatory compliance obligations and improve environmental performance.
Our expert ISO 14001 consultants in Essex have a wealth of experience assisting companies to implement the processes and systems they need in order to achieve certification.
What are the ISO 14001 requirements?
How your organisation decides to implement ISO 14001 is up to you and there is no exact way that it has to be done. However, in order to successfully achieve certification, you must be able to provide the necessary documentation as proof that your EMS meets the required standard.
The ISO 14001 requirements are separated into 10 different clauses which follow the Plan, Do, Check, Act method of management. Not all of these are relevant to every situation as there are a mixture of both mandatory and non-mandatory requirements.
1 – Scope
2 – Normative References
3 – Terms and definitions
4 — Context of the organisation
5 — Leadership
6 — Planning
7 — Support
8 — Operations
9 — Performance Evaluation
10 — Improvement

How can an ISO consultancy help my business?
ISO 14001 certification is an incredibly useful standard to implement within your business and can provide many great advantages for the customers, employees and stakeholders.
The process itself can be quite complicated and time consuming if not handled by someone who has the knowledge and experience to navigate through the minefields of processes, paperwork, information and documentation that is required. Although it may often be appealing to try to manage it inhouse, the inevitability is that this can work out to be extremely ineffective and end up costing more in man hours, drawing the process out for much longer than it needs to take.
