What is ISO 14001?
ISO 14001:2004 is an internationally renowned quality management system that provides a blueprint for guiding organizations in making key decisions regarding their operation’s impact on the environment. With pressure from governments, the media, and non-profit organizations, businesses both large and small face more scrutiny than ever when it comes to their environmental track record.
By certifying to ISO 14001 standards, any business regardless of industry can systematically ensure compliance with local and international laws, reducing risk from fines, penalties, and public boycotts as well as demonstrating a corporate policy of responsible environmental stewardship.
Integrating ISO 14001 into established quality assurance practices such as ISO 9001 or OHSAS 18001 is a commonly seen case in many implementations of the standard since ISO 14001’s framework merges seamlessly into existing quality management protocols.
Observing the protocols established by a carefully planned environmental quality management system will ensure that company managers can administer proper oversight of all decisions, activities, and production or services that could potentially impact the environment. ISO 14001 establishes a blueprint for organizations within any industry so that they can proactively pinpoint any environmental liabilities which may cause damages that could be attributed to the organization’s processes.
Quality managers that successfully implement ISO 14001 systems can experience peace of mind knowing that these risks have been mitigated to their fullest possible extent and exponentially decrease any likelihood of facing any unwanted legal, civil, or consumer backlash.
