What is ISO 14001?
ISO 14001 is the International Standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS). It was designed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) to help businesses and other organisations to reduce their environmental impact.
This standard allows businesses to set up an EMS that can help them reduce waste, improve resource efficiency and cut waste management costs. Implementing this global standard helps 4th Corner to comply with increasingly stringent environmental laws and regulations, and build trust with our customers.
The ISO 14001 environmental management system has two primary goals:
- Compliance with laws and regulations – by reaching and maintaining basic legal standards, companies can avoid fines, government intervention and sanctions against their business.
- Reduce environmental impact – the ISO 14001 EMS can help you develop, implement, and manage your environmental policies. For instance, it can help you plan for all phases of waste reduction from product design to end-of-life recycling.
