In today’s highly connected world, it is increasingly crucial for businesses to minimise their environmental impact by putting in place systems that benefit the environment, reduce costs, improve efficiency and gain the trust of stakeholders.
An environmental management system enables your business to take a strategic approach to mitigating the adverse environmental impacts of everyday operations. It provides a framework within which you can identify and set targets, demonstrate improvement against them and exploit opportunities to ensure the sound management of resources.
ISO 14001:2016 is a voluntary framework which helps organisations to continually improve their environmental performance by controlling and minimising the significant adverse impacts of their operations. It applies globally to all types and sizes of organisations.
To achieve the ISO 14001 certification, an independent certification body must provide external verification that the framework meets the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard. Achieving ISO 14001 enables your business to reassure internal and external stakeholders that your environmental performance is being monitored and complies with current and future regulations.
At Simply Sustainable we have many years of experience supporting clients to achieve and maintain ISO 14001. Depending on your needs and requirements we can offer a full service which covers design, implementation, support through the audit process and ongoing maintenance.
We are proud to have supported Costa Express in attaining the certification within 12 months, embedding sustainable thinking into the ethos of this fast-paced and rapidly growing company.
