Environmental Management Systems

Organisations are increasingly recognising the importance of sustainable business practices.  They are making strategic decisions to invest in systems and processes that will allow them to improve their social, economic and environmental performance.

Sustainable businesses benefit from reductions in waste, consumption of resources and operating costs.  They enjoy improved public perception and engagement, increased compliance with regulation and legislation and see increased market share and revenues.  They also have highly engaged workforces with good rates of retention and employee satisfaction and are more innovative with highly efficient operating processes and practices.

ISO 14001 Environmental Management System

What it does

ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised, voluntary standard that enables organisations to design, implement and maintain an environmental management system (EMS) in order to improve their environmental performance.  The related processes allow organisations to reduce negative impacts and increase positive impacts on the environment resulting from the way they do business and across their entire value-chain.  Organisations are better able to measure and report on their environmental impact, comply with relevant legislation and ultimately continually improve their performance.

How we can help

Our consultants are experienced in helping you:

  • Plan and implement ISO 14001.
  • Set up reporting processes.
  • Set up internal assurance processes.
  • Prepare for external assurance and first time certification.   
  • Assess the effectiveness of existing EMS and develop process improvements.  

We understand the importance for EMS to be designed with simplicity and efficiency in order to deliver maximum value within a realistic budget.  Therefore we will take the time to work with you to fully understand your business capabilities and where you are on your sustainability journey. 

We will work closely with your staff to ensure processes are designed to suit your organisational needs, are well integrated with existing processes and systems and make sense to those who need to comply with and monitor them.  We can help you ensure your staff have maximum autonomy and ownership of the processes so you can benefit from increased accountability across the organisation.

We look forward to working with you to ensure your EMS delivers ongoing benefits to your organisation, to the environment and ultimately to all our lives.
