FAQs about ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is an international regulatory standard for Environmental Management System (EMS). It provides organizations with a set of requirements for developing, implementing, and consistently improving their EMS. The EMS is a comprehensive management framework that helps businesses to reduce the impacts of their operations on the environment and ensure the sustainability of resources. Achieving the ISO 14001 certification will hence prove that your organization has implemented the best EMS to fulfill the commitment to environmental protection and using the Earth’s resources consciously.

The ISO 14001 certification is an internationally accepted certification for EMS and hence, achieving it will help your business to stand out from the competitors in terms of environmental performance.

The interest of businesses in environmental management is increasing day by day as impacts and consequences like climate change, global warming, soil depletion, contamination of water, polluting of air are becoming evident. Any business that feels the need to protect the environment with a greener approach and strong policies can get the ISO 14001 certification regardless it is a small-sized business, an SME or a large multinational corporation.

The costs for getting certified vary with businesses and it depends on some key factors which are size of business, type of industry, and complexities in the processes. Employing the ISO 14001 certification consultants will help in optimizing your costs because they can provide you with a methodical approach and speed up your preparation process for the certification.

Thus, the cost for certification entails the resource costs (resources needed to implement and maintain the EMS), training costs (if training courses are required by you), and fees of the consultants.

We provide a simple 5 step process to make your business fully ready and eligible for ISO 14001 in the shortest possible time.

1. Initial consultation where our consultants discuss the standard’s requirements and help you understand them.
2. Formal assessment or gap analysis of your existing environmental practices to find which requirements are not met or half met.
3. Document preparation involves formulating the EMS according to the ISO 14001 standard by closing all the gaps identified before
4. Correct implementation of the EMS by deploying the right resources and by ensuring proper training of employees
5. Internal audit to check whether the EMS complies with the ISO 14001 requirements

On completion of the fifth step i.e., after passing the audit, you can confidently apply for certification and be assured that your business will get certified successfully.

ISO 14001 focuses on the implementation of an Environmental Management System that helps businesses to reduce or minimize their impacts on the external environment including natural resources, living habitats in their surroundings, and local communities. ISO 45001, on the other hand, helps organizations to focus on minimizing risks or hazards in their internal environment i.e., within the workplace. It emphasizes the implementation of the Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) which helps to assess, identify and eliminate risks of occupational injuries and sicknesses at the workplace. The ISO 45001 standard hence ensures the safety and wellbeing of their valuable employees or workers.
