Home » EQMS » Quality Tools Overview » What is ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is an Environmental Management System that was developed to help organisations reduce their environmental footprint.
It is a generic standard that does not apply to a particular industry, and can be used by any organisation to reduce harmful effects on the environment.

Benefits of ISO 14001

With an ISO 14001 certification, your company clearly demonstrate commitment in reducing waste and recycling materials. Some of the many benefits by implementing an ISO 14001 EMS are listed below.

  • Environmental Management: Identify potential impacts and implement controls to reduce risks.
  • Legal Compliance: Understand statutory and regulatory requirements for your business.
  • Reduced Operating Cost: Efficient energy and water usage is money saved.
  • Additional Business: In some cases you are not able to quote for business without an ISO 14001 EMS.
