Are your systems environmentally responsible? Are they consistent with ISO 14001, the international standard for an environmental management system?
Meeting ISO 14001 allows companies to identify, evaluate, control, and reduce the environmental impacts of its activities, products, and services. Then through review, you continuously benchmark against the standard and make adjustments, as needed, to ensure that you consistently improve through environmental objectives and targets, manage your environmental “hotspots”, and are positioned to meet your environmental regulatory requirements.
Customized training and implementation programs are available to help you implement an environmental management system (EMS), based on a Plan-Do-Check-Act framework for continual improvement.
Customized implementation programs are conducted on-site and typically include:
- Conducting a gap assessment to help you develop an implementation plan
- Coaching your team through EMS implementation
- Assisting with the initial internal audits and management reviews
- Conducting a pre-assessment audit to ensure you are prepared for a registration audit
- Helping you correct system issues before the registration audit
Implementing an environmental management system can help you:
- Improve compliance, pollution prevention, and overall environmental performance
- Build confidence with stakeholders
- Identify and address the root cause of problem areas
- Provide senior management with an approach to continually improve
