What is ISO 14001 Environmental Certification and why implement it?

What is ISO 14001 Environmental Certification? Why would an organisation invest in developing and implementing a Environmental Management System?

The most important reason is it is very likely to help you grow your business. Many tenders, government contracts or supply arrangements require certification to ISO 14001. It is either a mandatory requirement or it plays a role in the decision-making process. It may be the very thing that differentiates you from a competitor on a significant bid; open up new markets…..or help you retain a current client.

Leading companies around the world demonstrate their environmental performance by controlling the impacts of their activities and by their commitment to a certified environmental management system.

The second reason is that it provides confidence to stakeholders that you are running a sustainable business. Whether it is investors, partners, clients, workers, interest groups or industry bodies they can take confidence in your processes, systems and management commitments through the transparency of the certification process. Your business has been independently assessed and found to meet or exceed the requirements of the international standard for quality management systems – ISO 14001.

The third key reason is that it helps you manage risk and improve. The certification process provides an independent view on your processes and systems. Can’t see the wood for the trees, can’t find the time to stop and really look at how things are working or not working. The audit process will help you identify if there are gaps, opportunities for improvement, inconsistencies or issues within your system that need fixing.
