ISO 14001:2015

Environmental Management Systems

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised standard for environmental management. 

How can ISO 14001 help your organisation?

  • Sets out eco-friendly management principles for waste disposal, energy consumption and use of natural resources

  • Provides guidance for implementing an environmental policy

  • Brings down cost through improving efficiency, productivity and reducing waste

  • Assists legislative compliance and reduces risk


Once you decide to implement ISO 14001, the first step is to learn about its best practice recommendations and compare these to your existing processes. This will help you identify any gaps or weaknesses in your current quality management systems, and give practical advice on how to improve.

There are two main options for this stage – you can attend a training course, or you can hire a consultant to guide you through the process.

The next step is to plan how to introduce the key principles of environmental management into your organisation.

Update or renew your processes according to the guidelines set out in the ISO 14001 standard, then communicate the changes internally. If you need extra support during this stage, an ISO 14001 consultant will be able to advise you and provide you with a gap analysis pre-assessment to make sure you’re ready for certification.

Once you and your consultant are satisfied that your environmental management processes align with the principles set out in ISO 14001, it’s time to book your certification.

We will complete a full audit of your business processes. If they meet the requirements of ISO 14001, we will then issue you with ISO 14001 certification.

ISO 14001 Certification

Why get certified to ISO 14001?

Certification to ISO 14001 demonstrates that your organisation is committed to environmental issues and is proactively working to minimise its impact on the environment.

In addition to enhancing your organisation’s public image, certification also brings commercial advantages. With many public and private sectors making ISO 14001 a requirement for those it works with, the standard will sharpen an organisation’s competitive edge when seeking tenders or applying for inclusion in the supply chain.

Already ISO 14001 certified?

Have you transitioned to ISO 14001:2015?

In 2015, ISO 14001 was revised to make it more relevant to the current marketplace.
Once an ISO standard is updated, ISO allows 3 years for organisations to transition their certification to the new standard.

This means the deadline to transition your ISO 14001 certification is 15 September 2018.

There’s not much time left to transition, so get started on as soon as possible to make sure you don’t lose your certification.
