At its core, ISO 14001:2015 certifies that a strong Environmental Management System - one that is built around the processes, policies, and best practices associated with how an organization interacts with and remains responsible to, its environment - is effectively in place for a given company.
These Environmental Management Systems are oftentimes highly tailored to specific businesses or industries, as each individual company or sector will have very different legal requirements, regulations, or environmental actions that need to be considered.
Smithers provides thorough ISO 14001:2015 certification services to organizations who are looking to make sure that they are compliant with their industry’s regulations, or who want to actively ensure that their products and processes are taking their environmental impact into account.
According to ISO.org, there are currently more than 300,000 certifications to the ISO 1400:2015 standard in 171 countries around the world. Designed with a straightforward approach to implementation in mind, ISO 14001:2015 is set up under the Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA) cycle, often found in other ISO standards. This PDCA format organizes your processes and procedures under the Environmental Management System in such a way that continual improvement is constantly encouraged, making process changes for improvements simpler to enact and more effective over the long-haul.
