SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT
Are profitability and environmental responsibility mutually exclusive? Not with an environmental management system certified to ISO 14001. It can help you improve your environmental performance, gain legal certainty, minimize risk and, best of all, communicate your performance to everyone.
ISO 14001 certification is a visible, globally recognized sign of responsible, sustainable management. It’s proof that you live up to your environmental commitments.
The ISO 14001 environmental management standard was first published in 1996. The current version, ISO 14001:2015, came out in September 2015 following a comprehensive revision. It introduces requirements imposed by the new high-level structure for ISO management system standards as well as several updates specific to environmental management. The environmental changes relate to essential aspects such as product lifecycles, adherence to compliance obligations (with regard to interested parties), measurement of environmental performance and – last but certainly not least – achievement of your own environmental objectives.
As a qualified, accredited certification body, we fully audit the effectiveness of your management system through the classic DQS certification process. We plan each certification individually, adapting it to your specific circumstances and corporate objectives. A pre-assessment can provide a starting point to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement. During the certification audit, we come to your facility to verify whether you meet all the requirements of ISO 14001. The certificate serves as proof of compliance. Annual monitoring ensures process stability and minimizes risks. You can recertify after three years.
