ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised standard that sets out the minimum requirements for an environmental management system (EMS). It helps organisations to improve their environmental performance by identifying, managing, monitoring and controlling their environmental issues in a holistic manner.

Who can get ISO14001 certified?

Iso14001 is aimed at all types of companies and organisations. In other words, any company regardless of size, number of employees, assets under management (AUM), industry or annual revenue can certify to ISO 14001.
