ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System

ISO 14001:2015 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective Environmental Management System (EMS).

The ISO 14001 standard is in placed to help organizations with the following:

  1. Minimize how their operations work processes will negatively affect the environment(i.e., cause adverse changes to air, water, or land)
  2. Comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements
  3. Continually improve in the above pointers

It provides a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements. The framework used is a Plan Do Check Act approach to continuously improve the Environmental Management System.

What is ISO 14001:2015 certification?

Environmental Aspect and Impact

The ISO 14001 Certification is an internationally recognized certification for the environmental management system standards. This certification helps organizations to improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.

Environmental Aspect is defined as any element of an organization’s work activity, products or services which can interact with the environment. (e.g. Electricity usage, Use of recycled paper, Storage of oil, fuel, diesel etc.)

Environmental Impact is defined as the cause and effect or any change, be it adverse or beneficial resulting from the activity interaction with the environment. (e.g. Air pollution, Increase in global warming, Spills and leakage etc.)

Having the Environmental Aspect and Impact will help organizations to reduce the usage of natural resources, protect the environment, and have a greater chance of long-term success.
