ISO 14001 is an international standard that specifies requirements for an environmental management system (EMS).  Using ISO 14001 can provide assurance to company management and employees, as well as external stakeholders, that the organisation considers all environmental issues relevant to its operations, such as air pollution, water and sewage issues, waste management, soil contamination, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and resource use and efficiency.

What are the benefits of ISO 14001 certification?

Third party certification can be used to demonstrate your commitment to continually streamline operations and reduce costs to increase the efficiency of your organisation. It will also allow your company to:

  • Demonstrate compliance with current and future statutory and regulatory requirements
  • Increase leadership involvement and engagement of employees
  • Improve company reputation and the confidence of stakeholders through strategic communication
  • Provide a competitive and financial advantage through improved efficiencies and reduced costs

When should an organisation apply for ISO 14001 certification?

Our Management Systems Certification scheme is open to any organisation that wishes to be certified, providing your organisation has developed and fully implemented the requirements of the chosen Management System Standard. We always recommend that you have operated your Management System for a minimum period of six months and have performed a full set of internal audits before applying to be certified by CIBSE Certification.
