ISO 14001

What is it?

ISO 14001, in simple terms, helps a company to identify, assess, manage and improve the immediate and long term environmental impacts of their activities, products, services and processes.

More information on ISO 14001 can be found here.

Why would I need it?

Having ISO 14001 certification can make a big difference if you are bidding for contracts or tenders. It can be a great way of ensuring compliance with environmental legislation. Alternatively it may be a contract requirement or you may be encouraged to have it by your supply chain partners.

Benefits can include:

  • Improvement in public perception of your company
  • Reduction in process costs
  • Reduction in wastes and efficient use of resources
  • Lower insurance costs by demonstrating effective risk management
  • Compliance with legislation

We said we keep it simple…..how?

We start by seeing what you already have in place and what gaps you have.

Then we agree a plan of action and set some timescales.

We identify applicable legislation and develop your environmental aspects.

We work with you so you understand the process and “de-jargon” it.

We train you and your staff.

We audit the things we’ve implemented and work on areas you still have concerns with.

When you are ready to go for audit, we’re there on the day for support.

We have as much, or as little, involvement with you as you need.

We work on the understanding that you know your business better than we do but we understand systems and ways to improve so we should make a great team.
