As leadership in environmental sustainability continues to be at the forefront of corporate responsibility, an increasing number of companies are using the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 to achieve and maintain measurable standards of quality and assurance. ISO 104001:2015(E) is an industry standard that defines an environmental management system (EMS) for companies to protect the environment from adverse impacts and promote ongoing environmental improvement. Oftentimes, companies require their vendors to maintain ISO 14001 certification.
Major components of the management system include:
- Establishing an ISO 14001 committee and lead representative to drive the EMS at all levels of the company.
- Identifying and evaluating environmental impacts from facility operations.
- Setting measurable goals and objectives to reduce environmental impacts and improve environmental performance.
- Generating procedures, maintaining records and training employees to implement the EMS.
- Auditing and reviewing the EMS for continuous improvement.
