Accredited ISO 14001:2015 certification from Lloyd's Register (LR) shows your stakeholders that you have implemented your environmental management system (EMS) properly, in accordance with the requirements of the standard. As well as offering a more systematic approach to meeting your customer and stakeholder requirements, ISO 14001 certification has also helped organisations to reduce their energy and water consumption.
ISO 14001:2015 puts a greater emphasis on proactively improving environmental performance and embeds environmental management within an organisation’s strategic plans. It is suitable for organisations of any size and in any sector.
What we offer
Compliance to performance
While conformity is an important aspect of our assurance services, LR’s unique methodology turns assessment into a powerful management tool to improve and protect performance. By understanding what really matters to your organisation and stakeholders, we help you improve your management system and your business at the same time.
We specialise in management systems compliance including gap analysis, assessment and certification, all underpinned with expert advice designed to meet the needs of your industry.
We explore every problem thoroughly with exact, analytical precision. We leave no stone unturned and no questions unanswered, to draw accurate conclusions.
We provide practical client training courses worldwide in various languages, led by trained and qualified tutors. Many of our courses are endorsed by relevant professional bodies and based on our experience of assessing management systems. We offer both public and in-house training services including customised training solutions through our business improvement services.

Don’t let your certification journey stop with environmental management; at LR, we deliver certification, validation and verification assessment services to all of the world’s leading standards and schemes including quality, health and safety, sustainability, energy management, business continuity, cyber security and many more.
What are the benefits?
Improved management of environmental risk, legal compliance and easy integration.
ISO 14001 certification provides a systematic approach to legal compliance and 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.
By following the best practice principles found in the standard, you will develop a more robust approach to risk management, a process approach to environmental management and a greater understanding of the internal and external context of your organisation, all of which will contribute to your effectiveness and performance.
The Annex SL High Level Structure used by ISO in its new and revised standards makes it far simpler for management system controls to be integrated into a single ‘business management system’, which can help to reduce duplication in cost and effort.
Why choose LR?
