An environmental management system is a written management system designed to assess the environmental impact of your business in every facet and apply procedures and controls to minimise the adverse impacts. It generally goes hand in hand with improving efficiency and reducing waste.
There are ongoing documentation requirements as part of managing an ISO 14001 system. It is a living system not a static document. ISO 14001 systems are audited annually by a certifying body to maintain the certification, and to pass these audits you need the right documentation to evidence that your system has been working correctly.
Environment management systems are critical for firms to meet their environmental impact targets. These targets may be as a result of regulatory requirements, or as a result of internal governance measures aimed at reducing environmental impact. Obtaining an ISO certified system acts as a powerful management tool, guaranteeing customers that your organisation is managing its impact on the environment.
ISO 14001 systems are also valuable for a variety of other reasons, from the more existential like saving the planet, to the more immediate like meeting eligibility criteria for certain tenders or gaining a marketing benefit.
Our consultants visit your business on an as needs basis to build and manage your systems for you. We can also takeover the management of existing ISO 14001 systems, or provide training to businesses that want to manage their own ISO 14001 system but need to know how to do it.
Our rates are extremely competitvive compared to other systems management suppliers and compared to the cost of insourcing. Through our pool of more than 100 consultants nationwide and internationally we have the best wealth of experience on the market, and this expertise means we can build better systems.
For non-professionals building and maintaining a system is extremely time consuming and the results are often unsatisfactory. Even if you are able to maintain the certification you don’t get the real benefits of a properly designed system.
