ISO 14001 is an Environmental Management Standard that companies develop when they wish to show positive environmental management control over their operations. There are many laws and regulations designed to protect the environment. Not knowing about them or obeying them could mean financial and legal repercussions. Developing an ISO 14001 system requires evidence of maintaining compliance with these laws or regulations. It can save you time, money, and possible legal actions down the road.
The ISO 14000 standard provides management tools for organizations to control their environmental aspects and to improve their performance. All together, these tools can provide significant tangible economic benefits, including,
- Reduction of raw material
- Reduction of energy consumption
- Reduction of waste generation/disposal costs
- Improved process efficiency
- Utilization of recoverable resources.
Companies may be registered or certified(compliance) to this standard. We can make available either type of audit for your company.
