What is the ISO 14001 Certification?

The ISO 14001 certification focuses on the environment and how businesses can control impacts they may have on the environment. 

Environmental issues have come to the forefront in recent years with greater awareness amongst legislators, insurers, financiers, shareholders, customers, employees and neighbours. An Environmental Management System (EMS) provides a framework for obtaining ISO 14001 Certification and managing environmental responsibilities to make business operations more efficient.

ISO 14001 allows an organisation to understand, describe and control its significant impacts on the environment, reduce the risk of potentially costly pollution incidents, ensure compliance with environmental legislation and continually improve its business operations.

What are the benefits of achieving the ISO 14001 Certification?

There are a range of benefits associated with operating an effective EMS to comply with ISO 14001: 

Financial benefits 

There are several benefits of achieving your ISO 14001 certification:

  • Provide cost savings through reducing waste and making more efficient use of natural resources (electricity, water, gas, and fuels).
  • Ensure that the organisation is better placed to avoid future fines and penalties for not meeting environmental legislation by identifying environmental risks and addressing the weaknesses.
  • Reduce insurance costs by demonstrating better risk management.

Operational/ Internal benefits 

When it comes to the impact on operational or internal processes, achieving your ISO 14001 certification has the following benefits; 

  • Improve overall performance and efficiency.
  • Tighten production processes, yielding better efficiency and reduction in the risk of incidents.
  • Remove uncertainty and consistency by managing disruption and waste.
  • Help clarify staff responsibility.
  • Improve internal communications and morale – often leading to sound environmental solutions suggested by staff, who are the ultimate owners of the business processes.

External benefits 

Further to the financial and internal benefits, there are also external benefits to achieving the ISO 14001 certification;

  • Leads to a better public perception of the organisation and a competitive advantage, leading to improved sale opportunities.
  • Lead to better community awareness of the impact of your activities on the local residents (noise, smell, dust, vibration, etc.)
  • Demonstrate environmental commitment and provide confidence to your customers, trade partners, stakeholders, regulators and local authority.
  • Demonstrate an innovative and forward-thinking approach.

How can ISO 14001 Certification help win more tenders?

In a variety of industries, ISO 14001 certification is now a very common demand during the PQQ (Pre-Qualifying Questionnaire) stage of the tendering process.

It can be challenging to successfully structure, format, and communicate in your tendering application document how your company manages its environmental performance.

Achieving ISO 14001 Certification means your business will now have a well-documented management system that has been implemented and executed. Having these policies and procedures in place now means that the majority of the responses to tendering questions will be easily accessible.


ISO 14001 and the Sustainable Development Goals

The world is facing a crisis: poverty, hunger, inequality, and climate change are just some of the issues we must address.

In 2015, world leaders came together to create 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim to tackle these issues, to build a better world by 2030.

ISO 14001 can be used to meet the following goals
