ISO 14001, Is it worth it?

Posted on 25 Aug 2020

In today’s market, companies have to consistently look for methods to be more competitive than their rivals in the industry. Many companies are struggling to find that “edge” that can make them more desirable to their potential customers. When the economy is in a situation such as which we find ourselves in, thinking outside the box is necessary to find alternative ways on saving money and being more competitive, but where can you start?

 

ISO 14001 is an environmental management system that is suitable for all types and sizes of organisations, and requires that companies look for ways to continually improve on their systems in ways that can be beneficial in making their companies more viable as well as reducing costs and wastages, creating a more systematic approach to legal compliance and overall environmental performance.

 

Beginning with the implementation of a Management System can be dauting at first glance. It may be comforting to know that ISO 14001 fits hand in hand with ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 45001 (Occupational health and safety) systems, making it easier if you are already certified with one of these or if you are interested in becoming certified in all three. Once the initial challenge of aligning your organisation’s systems to that of the ISO group, the benefits can be almost immediately realised and methods for improvement identified.
