ISO 14001 calls on organisations to proactively manage their environmental impact through a commitment to pollution prevention, legal compliance and continual improvement.
ISO 14001 can help to manage and improve performance in key metric areas such as lower energy usage, waste reduction, increased recycling, and lower raw material and consumable costs. This reduces the need for reactive strategies such as clean-ups and litigation, which can result in reputational damage and legal proceedings.
Risk-based thinking gives structure to managing environmental issues that are likely to impact your business.
