The ISO 14001 Environment Management System (EMS) standard is an internationally recognised environmental management standard which was first published in 1996. It is a systematic framework to manage the immediate and long term environmental impacts of an organisation’s products, services and processes. Certification Europe is accredited to certify your environmental management system to the ISO 14001 standard.

ISO 14001 is part of the ISO 14000 series and forms the cornerstone of the family of standards. ISO 14001 environmental certification provides a framework for environmental management best practice to help organisations:

  • minimise their environmental footprint
  • diminish the  risk of pollution incidents
  • provides operational improvements
  • ensure compliance with relevant environmental legislation, and
  • develop their business in a sustainable manner

Benefits of ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems Certification

By completing ISO 14001 certification your organisation can assure stakeholders that your environmental management system (EMS) meets international industry specific environmental standards. Every company large and small; industrial, manufacturing, services, or trade related had an impact on the environment and can therefore benefit from ISO 14001 certification.

Key benefits of the ISO 14001 standard include:

  • Identify cost savings with greater emphasis on resource, waste and energy management
  • Develop the corporate image and credibility
  • Quantify, monitor and control the impact of operations on the environment, now and in the future
  • Ensure legislative awareness and compliance
  • Improve environmental performance of supply chain
  • Protect the company, assets, shareholders and directors
  • Potentially decrease public liability insurance costs for your organisation
  • Grow your access to business partners and potential customers

    Good overview


    Familiar content as I have an MBA in sustainability and am up to speed on standards. The video content is clear and there are some great quotes in the case study to remind upper management that a top down approach is the best way to build triple bottom line practices into the work culture.
    I appreciate that the access to information and certification are free!

    Informative but Boring


    The videos are dull and too quiet. I had the volume turned all the way up and could barely hear them. The case studies were interesting though. More interaction would have been helpful.

      Sorry to hear you had issues with the volume. We are developing new courses with more interaction that will hopefully be more to your liking. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you on some of our other courses.
