ISO 14001 Concept & Importance

August 30, 2020

It is widely recognized that environmental problems are increasingly affecting the future strategic direction of every enterprise around the world. In addition to the growing demand for vital natural resources such as water, has prompted some organizations to incorporate “green thinking” into their activities. These so-called “green companies” are moving in this direction not only to do their part to protect the environment, but also to grow in this relatively new and unfavorable situation.

Your company needs the ISO 14001 certificate in order to:

  • fulfillment of tender conditions;
  • promotes access to the international market;
  • increasing the prestige of the enterprise;
  • it is possible to minimize emissions and waste, or their complete absence.

Necessities of 14001 certification

Unmanaged risks connected with environmental aspects of the company’s operations can significantly reduce the economic performance of the company and reduce its value. While the presence of a certificate enhances the company’s image and opens new opportunities for the company, including in European and global markets, helps to attract foreign investors.

Since the organization itself chooses the degree of implementation of the standard, it can implement it in the entire production or only in its part – for example, only in one branch, if it is a corporation, or in only one product or one department. QMS, which meets ISO 14001:2015, can be implemented in any organization, providing services, including plans to enter international markets or establish business relations with international partners.

The studies have shown that the main incentives for the implementation of environmental safety management systems include compliance with environmental legislation, fulfillment of export obligations, compliance with the mandatory requirements of regulatory documents and compliance with international agreements in the field of environmental protection, the desire to remain competitive in the market.

ISO 14000 standards provide organizations of all types (public and private) with a structure, methodology and tools for managing the environmental impacts of their activities. They are designed for proactive leaders who are not happy with simple implementation of the legislation and have a wide enough outlook to realize that taking a strategic approach can generate returns on capital that has been invested in environmental activities.

The advantages of this approach are:

  • saving energy and materials;
  • reduced costs associated with waste;
  • reducing the risk of emergencies;
  • the highest corporate reputation among regulators, consumers and the public;
  • acquisition of a positive image of the enterprise among consumers, the public and regulatory authorities, as an organization demonstrating a commitment to protecting the natural environment;
  • expanding the sales market by increasing the number of loyal consumers and new business partners;
  • increasing the flow of investments and obtaining loans on more favorable terms;

What topics does ISO 14001:2015 cover?

  1. Enterprise context.
  2. Support service.
  3. Verification of efficiency.
  4. Improvement.
  5. Leadership points.
