ISO 14001 is the International Standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS). It was designed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) to help businesses and other organisations to reduce their environmental impact.
Any business, of any size, in any sector can implement the ISO 14001 framework and apply for certification of their environmental management plan. This makes ISO 14001 one of the most popular standards in the world.
This standard allows businesses to set up an EMS that can help them to reduce waste, improve resource efficiency and cut waste management costs.
