The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) published the revised version of ISO 14001(ISO 14001:2015) on 15 September 2015. Organisations with environmental management systems should take timely measures to adjust their environmental systems to the new standard. The infographic below gives a quick snapshot view of the key changes and timeline.
Highlight your organisation’s commitment to environmental protection
Manufacturers and service providers are under pressure to make supply chains more environmentally friendly due to the growing global awareness of the environmental impact of consumer lifestyles. Organisations that align their commercial objectives with global ecological concerns stand to gain a substantial competitive advantage. This also reduces the cost of energy and material consumption, recycling, air and water emissions, and legal fees incurred by non-compliance.
Ensure continuous improvement throughout your organisation
Businesses today seek to offer products and services that not only meet but also surpass customer expectations. At the same time, they are under pressure to cut costs to remain competitive. Organisations both large and small require a comprehensive approach to quality improvement that resolves these challenges of quality and cost efficiency.
