ISO 14001:2015
What is ISO 14000:2015

The ISO 14000 family addresses various aspects of environmental management. The very first two standards, ISO 14001:2004 and ISO 14004:2004 deal with environmental management systems (EMS). ISO 14001:2015 provides the requirements for an EMS and ISO 14004:2004 gives general EMS guidelines.

An EMS meeting the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 is a management tool enabling an organization of any size or type to:

  • Identify and control the environmental impact of its activities, products or services, and to
  • Improve its environmental performance continually, and to
  • Implement a systematic approach to setting environmental objectives and targets, to achieving these and to demonstrating that they have been achieved.
  • An Environmental Management System provides a framework for managing environmental responsibilities so they become more efficient and more integrated into overall business operations.

The adherence of the Organizations to the Environmental Management System is a transition from verifying the respect to the national and regional laws to a complete management of its activities towards the prevention and the improvement of what concerns the environmental impact. The norms and law's dispositions are respected, it is established an environmental policy that is equipped with specific programs of prevention and improvement for all the environmental aspects involved in the organization's activity.

This policy is a public communication.

These standards are helped by an efficient control instrument that is AUDIT. These audits must be punctual and exhaustive and they are performed by auditors, chosen for their experience and competence. Environmental Management Systems are based on standards, which specify a process of achieving continuously improved environmental performance and complying with legislation.
