Now more than ever, climate change is at the forefront of our minds, as suppliers and consumers. Actively taking steps to reduce the carbon footprint of your Organization can have a real positive impact – regardless of the size of your business. This is where ISO14001 comes in. An Environmental Management System helps your business to monitor, control and improve the environmental performance and responsibilities.
ISO14001:2015 is an Environmental Management System that aligns your business processes and procedures to manage the impact of business activities in a bid for increased sustainability. Positively impacting the environment is often the driving force behind business certifying to ISO14001, however there is often the added benefit of reduced general costs and improved reputation.
Morale: Knowing that your Organization is doing its part can help boost morale as colleagues work together to reduce their carbon footprint.
It can be as simple as reducing how much is printed, turning off electronics and using refillable water bottles. Small changes are easy to implement and can have a big impact over time. ISO14001 is the best practise standard covering how things should be done, exploring all aspects of environmental impact within an organization. The CertiKit ISO14001 toolkit will guide you through the requirements of the standard, identifying actions and procedures to implement into your business model to make positive environmental change.
