ISO 14000

ISO14001 is an internationally accepted standard that sets out how you can go about putting in place an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). Its purpose is to enable an organization of any type or size to develop and implement a policy committing it to prevention of pollution, compliance with legal and other requirements, and continual improvement. The realization of this commitment will be a management system that recognizes and manages the primary environmental issues through awareness and assessment of applicable legal requirements, objectives for improvement, assignment of responsibilities, competent personnel, communications, procedures, controls and monitoring, emergency response capability, self correction and assessment, and internal reviews. These processes are to be based on the plan-do-check-act cycle.

In all cases, the EMS specifications are aimed at improving environmental performance. ISO14001 refers to this as improving the EMS itself. Through associations this should lead to improved environmental performance, since improving the EMS should lead to improved performance.
