This week more than one billion people from all over the world will be celebrating Earth Day on April 22nd. One of the most powerful ways organizations can honor this special day is by becoming ISO 14001 certified. This standard provides guidance for companies who are looking for ways to create and maintain environmental management systems.
With the 2015 revisions to the standard, ISO 14001 provides additional focus on improvements to the environmental performance of an organization and the important role of the organization’s leadership in promoting and implementing environmental management.
ISO 14001 helps organizations improve their carbon footprint, and also promotes savings through lower consumption of energy, resources and raw materials, reduces waste disposal costs, improves public image and boosts their competitive advantage. So while the goal is continual improvement of environmental performance, it goes beyond a green standard.
