If you are looking to reduce waste management costs and demonstrate your business’ commitment to protecting the environment, implementing an environmental management system such as ISO 14001 can be a fitting solution.
The ISO does this by creating processes that tackle an organisation’s environmental impact, management responsibility, resource management, and the measurement, analysis and continual improvement of a business’ operations.
By doing so, businesses can reap a whole host of advantages.
A survey carried out by ISO (International Organisation of Standardisation) revealed that:
- Close to 75% of participants enjoyed ‘high’ or ‘very high’ value for meeting legal requirements and improving environmental performance
- More than 60% indicated ‘high’ to ‘very high’ value for management commitment and employee engagement
- More than 80% indicated at least moderate value in business management, improving public image, achieving strategic objectives and integrating with business management systems
- 63% indicated at least a moderate value in financial benefits
If you would like to start reaping these rewards for your own business, get started on your ISO 14001 journey today by calling us on 0333 344 3646 or by emailing [email protected].
