The ISO 14001 certification is a family of standards related to environmental management that exists to help organisations.
The ISO 14001 helps to minimise how an organisations operations can negatively affect the environment.
ISO 14001 certification demonstrates environmental compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements.
ISO 14001 helps organisations to look for ways to improve their environmental impact and environmental compliance.
Similar to the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 relates to the process of how a product is produced, rather than the product itself.
The 14001 certification approval is performed by third-party organisations rather than being awarded by ISO directly.
The requirements of ISO 14001 are an integral part of the European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS). The EMAS requirements mainly concern performance improvement, legal compliance and reporting duties.
