ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard
ISO 14000 is a family of standards related to environmental management that exists to help organisations (a) minimise how operations (processes etc.) negatively affect the environment (i.e. cause adverse changes to air, water, or land); (b) comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements, and (c) continually improve above.
It specifies a set of environmental management requirements for environmental management systems. The purpose of this standard is to help all types of organisations to protect the environment, to prevent pollution, and to improve their environmental performance.
The standard does not state requirements for environmental performance, but maps out a framework that a company or organisation can follow to set up an effective environmental management system. It can be used by any organisation that wants to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste and drive down costs. Using ISO 14001 providse assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved. ISO 14001 can also be integrated with other management functions and assists companies in meeting their environmental and economic goals.
ISO 14001 was developed primarily to assist companies with a framework for better management control that can result in reducing their environmental impacts. In addition to improvements in performance, organisations can reap a number of economic benefits including higher conformance with legislative and regulatory requirements by adopting the ISO standard. By minimizing the risk of regulatory and environmental liability fines and improving an organisation’s efficiency, benefits can include a reduction in waste and consumption of resources, and operating costs. There has been a push over the last decade by consumers, for companies to adopt better internal controls, making the incorporation of ISO 14001 a smart approach for the long term viability of businesses. This can provide them with a competitive advantage against companies that do not adopt the standard; in turn this can have a positive impact on a company’s asset value. It can also lead to improved public perceptions of the business, placing them in a better position to operate in the international marketplace. The use of ISO 14001 can demonstrate an innovative and forward thinking approach to customers and prospective employees. It can increase a business’s access to new customers and business partners.
