ISO 14001 Standard: 2015 is an international standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system (EMS). It helps organizations improve their environmental and sustainability performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste to save money, gain a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.
The 2015 version responds to the latest trends – for instance, the increasing demand for companies to factor in both external and internal elements that influence their impact. This includes voluntary agreements for resource conservation and minimizing the organization’s environmental footprint. Other key changes include:
• Greater commitment from leadership
• Consideration of life cycle strategies for environmental management
• Increased consideration of external stakeholders and documentation of their needs / interests as compliance obligations
• Verification of the effectiveness of corrective actions
