The International Standard
ISO 14001 environmental management systems work by assessing the environmental impact of your business and minimising the adverse impacts by applying procedures and controls. Developed by the International Standards Organisation, the systems can be externally audited for compliance by an independent certification body. The standard applies to companies large and small, and across all industries, and is recognised globally, with more than 350,000 certifications currently.
Implementing an environmental management system is a structured way for firms to meet their environmental impact targets. These targets may be from regulatory requirements, or part of internal governance measures aimed at reducing environmental impact or cutting waste. ISO 14001 certification is also a valuable marketing tool, as it signifies to customers that your organisation is considering its impact on the environment, which is an increasingly important factor for consumers.
Our professionals help you get the real benefits of an ISO system with minimal complication. The system should be relevant to your business, right-sized for your needs, and ready for audit at any moment. There are complex continuing documentation requirements as part of maintaining an ISO 14001 system, and keeping it active and updated. Our staff help you take care of the daily upkeep of your system, at your premises, so that you and your staff can focus on your core functions.
ISO 14001 systems are also valuable for a variety of other reasons, from the more existential like saving the planet, to the more immediate like meeting eligibility criteria for certain tenders or gaining a marketing benefit.
Our consultants visit your business on an as needs basis to build and manage your systems for you. We can take over the management of existing ISO 14001 systems, or provide training to businesses that want to manage their own ISO 14001 system but need to know how to do it.
For non-professionals, building and maintaining a system is extremely time consuming and the results are often sub-optimal. Even if you are able to maintain the certification you may not get the real benefits of an better system. Our consultants have vast experience, making your system a valuable tool for improvement, not just a certificate on the wall.
Our rates are extremely competitive compared to other systems management companies, and compared to the cost of in-sourcing. Through our pool of consultants nationwide and internationally we have the best wealth of experience on the market, and this expertise means we can build better systems.
