ISO 14001 is the internationally recognized standard for an environmental management system (EMS). It provides guidance on how to manage the environmental aspects of activities, products and services more effectively, taking into consideration environmental protection, pollution prevention and socioeconomic needs. An EMS helps a company to continually improve its ability to efficiently identify, minimize, prevent and manage environmental impacts as they arise, therefore reducing risk. ISO 14001 can be established in any organization, regardless of its size or sector. It is becoming more and more imperative that environmental progress is important to business bottom line and essential healthy economy and prosperous society.
