Environmental Management System – ISO 14001:2015
ISO 14001 is a family of standards related to environmental management that exists to help organizations
(a) Minimize how their 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,
(c) Continually improve in the above.
ISO 14001:2015 specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organization can use to enhance its environmental performance. ISO 14001:2015 is intended for use by an organization seeking to manage its environmental responsibilities in a systematic manner that contributes to the environmental pillar of sustainability.
ISO 14001:2015 helps an organization achieve the intended outcomes of its environmental management system, which provide value for the environment, the organization itself and interested parties.
Consistent with the organization's environmental policy, the intended outcomes of an environmental management system include:
a) Enhancement of environmental performance;
b) Fulfilment of compliance obligations;
c) Achievement of environmental objectives.
ISO 14001 is a universal standard suitable for large and small businesses in any sector. Because it doesn't set specific environmental performance requirements, it can be used by companies at all stages of environmental management.
ISO 14001:2015 is applicable to any organization, regardless of size, type and nature, and applies to the environmental aspects of its activities, products and services that the organization determines it can either control or influence considering a life cycle perspective. ISO 14001:2015 does not state specific environmental performance criteria.
Environmental Management System exclusives protect the environment in which the organization operates. Its clauses ensure that the organization takes responsibility for disposal of anything that could probably be toxic to the land, air or water. It also addresses environmental awareness among both producers and consumers.
The ISO 14001:2015 documentation toolkit contains an environmental manual, procedures, SOPs, forms, quality plan and ISO 14001 audit checklist in an editable format.
