ISO14001 – why you need it and how we can help you get it

The environment – and the damage that humankind is causing to it – makes headlines every day.

You can’t switch on the TV news without hearing about deforestation, global warming and the harm caused to our oceans by plastic.

Environmental campaigners encourage us all to do our bit – whether that’s by recycling, switching off lights or using less water.

And organizations of all sizes have their part to play, too, whether they’re small businesses or global corporations.

Laws and other regulations over the past few years have set targets for nations to get their houses in order.

Perhaps the most widely known is the UN Paris Climate Agreement of 2016 under which nations must take steps to mitigate global warming by reducing emissions.

And with a big chunk of emissions coming from industry and transportation, that means that businesses and other organizations need to take steps to become greener.

So where do I start?

The best place to start is with ISO14001. The latest version of the standard was introduced in 2015 to help organizations meet their environmental responsibilities.

ISO14001 defines the criteria for an Environmental Management System and can be used to help organizations improve efficiency by saving resources and cut costs and waste.

It can give assurance to management and staff, as well as external stakeholders, that environmental impact is being measured and improved.

And it can be easily integrated with other management systems, such as the ISO9001 Quality Management System.

Under ISO14001, each organization sets its own targets. The standard’s EMS highlights what needs to be done to meet these goals, as well as how to monitor progress and make improvements.

The EMS’s scope can include single or multiple sites, and the standard applies to the public and private sectors.

Key points of the standard include the involvement of “top management”, the specification of risks and opportunities, and a “life-cycle” approach to environmental impact with regards to all aspects of an organization’s operations.

It is also the second most popular International Standard. According the latest ISO Survey, in 2017, more than 362,000 organizations held certification – a rise of 5% on the previous year. That figure is expected to rise as organizations become more aware of the benefits of protecting the environment.

Why do I need a CertiKit Toolkit?

In a nutshell, we make the process of applying for certification so much simpler – and far less expensive – than using a consultant.

By implementing the standard in-house, its principles become a way of life for staff. It can be easy, otherwise, to achieve certification and then largely ignore the principles once the consultant has left.

If you are already certified to the ISO9001 standard – and especially if you achieved certification using our Toolkit – you should find the EMS process relatively straightforward.

But whether you’re familiar with ISO process or this your first time, we’re here to make things easier for you.

Our Toolkit is split into several folders. The first contains a series of documents to get you started, such an implementation guide, a project plan and a gap assessment tool.

The rest of the folders follow sections of the standard. These have headings such as Leadership, Planning and Improvement.

The folders contain dozens of documents – mostly created with Microsoft Office and Word – which can be tailored to suit your needs. If you don’t know your processes from your procedures, we’re here to help.

Compared to competing toolkits, your ISO27001 document structure was very good. The provided "Introduction" of each was useful (I have moved those out of the core documents and into a more comprehensive manual) for the general audience vs security staff. The inclusion of references to 27017 and 27018 were appreciated. You provided more "ISMS-C" oriented artefacts than competitors.
