Environmental: ISO 14001
At APC we are experts in the implementation and ongoing management of ISO 14001 systems.
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.
Managing Ongoing Requirements
There are many 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. We take care of this for you, so you can focus on the job at hand.
Meeting your Environmental Impact Targets
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 to reach these targets, and signifies to customers that your organisation is appropriately managing its impact on the environment.
Reducing Waste, Adding Value
ISO 14001 systems are valuable for a variety of reasons, from the more existential like saving the planet, to the more immediate like meeting eligibility criteria for tenders or gaining a marketing edge in attracting environmentally conscious customers. Reducing environmental impact through a management system also often goes hand in hand with waste reduction, leading to direct cost savings.
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.
