ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirement.
The ISO 14001:2015 certification provides a framework for a strategic approach to a company's environmental policy, plans and actions. This provides the generic requirements for an environmental management system. Following are some of the essentials of our service.
Environmental Management involves the management of all components of the bio-physical environment, both living (biotic) and non-living (abiotic). This is due to the interconnected and network of relationships amongst all living species and their habitats. The environment also involves the relationships of the human environment such as the social, cultural and economic environment with the bio-physical environment. These standards exist to help organizations minimize the negative impact of their operations on the environment.
