What Is An Environmental Management System?
What Is An Environmental Management System? An Environmental Management System such as ISO 14001 help organisations identify, manage, monitor and control their environmental issues in a ‘holistic’ manner.
ISO 14001 Environmental Management System is undoubtedly suitable for organisations of all types and sizes. Whether they are private, not for profit or governmental.
It requires an organisation considers all environmental issues which are relevant to its operations.
This can relate to air pollution, water and sewage issues, waste management, soil contamination, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and also resource use and efficiency.
ISO 14001 Environmental Management System includes the need for the continual improvement of an organisations systems and approach to environmental concerns.
ISO 14001:2015 environmental management revision
The ISO 14001 standard has recently been revised, with key improvements such as the increased prominence of environmental management within the organisations strategic planning processes. This will mean a greater input from leadership and a stronger commitment to proactive initiatives that boost environmental performance.
Integrating ISO 14001 into your management system
Other ISO standards that look at different types of management systems such as ISO 9001 for quality management and OHSAS 18001/ISO 45001 for occupational health and safety, all use a High-Level Structure.
ISO 14001 can, therefore, be integrated easily into an existing management system.
