ISO14001 environmental toolkit gets a green makeover

Climate change is never far from the headlines – and an increasing number of organizations are taking steps to cut their carbon footprints and leave the planet in a better state for future generations.

We at CertiKit launched our ISO14001 Toolkit in July 2019 to help organizations launch an Environmental Management System to improve efficiency by saving resources and cutting costs and waste.

The toolkit, which runs alongside those for ISO9001 (Quality Management) and ISO45001 (Health and Safety Management), has proved popular with customers.

Copies have sold far and wide, from the UK and USA to Serbia and South Africa, helping organizations to become certified to the standard.

A raft of improvements

Now we’ve launched Version 2 – and there are plenty of improvements to get excited about.

The toolkit is the latest in the CertiKit collection to get a complete redesign, with a new colour scheme, fonts and imagery.

All Visio flowcharts have been replaced with those in Microsoft Word, certain appendices have been recreated as standalone forms, and handy dashboards have been added to Excel spreadsheets.

The toolkit comes bundled with its own CertiKit theme of styles and colours, which makes it easy for customers to change the ‘green’ look and feel of the documents should they wish.

There are also several new documents and other tweaks:

  • Completion Instructions: These have been updated to give a better introduction to the toolkit
  • Implementation Guide: A section on the integrated management system has been added
  • Toolkit Index: New document with two indices – one by document and the other by ISO14001 requirement
  • EMS Overview: New diagram showing how all the toolkit documents fall under the various section headings of the standard
  • Certification Readiness Checklist: New document listing a dozen steps which must be completed ahead of the certification process
  • EMS Processes and Interactions: New document including a diagram of how the standard’s processes interact with one another

Toolkits simpler to navigate

CertiKit managing director Ken Holmes says the documents look more professional and competent than ever.

He added: “I’m delighted that we’ve now been able to apply the kind of look-and-feel enhancements to our ISO14001 toolkit that have been so well received by our other toolkit customers.

“In particular, the dashboard enhancements to our spreadsheet tools make reporting and analysis easy. We continue to pack more and more useful functionality into our documents.

“The new Toolkit Index sets out clearly how each requirement of the standard is addressed by the toolkit. Together with the new overview diagram, understanding how our toolkit works has never been so simple.

“We believe that environmental management will become increasingly important to organisations of all sizes as the climate change debate progresses.”

Do your bit for the planet

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing planet Earth – and every organization should be doing its bit to safeguard its future.

Becoming certified to ISO14001 is a great way to start. Our toolkit costs £395, excluding VAT. You can buy the CertiKit ISO14001 v2 Toolkit here.
