Reduce your organization’s environmental impact with an ISO 14001 audit from SGS.
ISO 14001 applies to all organizations and the environmental aspects of their activities, products and services that can control or influence, from a life-cycle perspective.
The standard specifies environmental management system (EMS) requirements to enhance your organization’s environmental performance. With ISO 14001, you can learn to systematically manage the environmental responsibilities that contribute to sustainability.
An EMS can provide value to the environment, your organization and interested parties. Consistent with your environmental policy, the benefits of an EMS include:
- Environmental performance enhancement
- Achievement of environmental objectives
- Fulfillment of compliance obligations
- Brand growth
- Risk avoidance
Aligning with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
ISO 14001 contributes to UN Sustainable Development Goals 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14 and 15.
