Environmental Consciousness is the shield of our planet
Humans and the natural environment are directly dependent upon each other. The environment is the "home" of us all, and it offers precious assets on a biological, mental, practical, social, economic, spiritual, moral, cultural and artistic level.
The protection of the environment is inextricably linked to the protection of our health and of human life per se.
Environmental problems in modern times have acquired global economic, social and political dimensions. Therefore, investing in the creation of collective environmental consciousness becomes of utmost importance for the formation of an actual and permanent ecological attitude.
Environmental management is the management of all activities of a company which have or could have an impact on the environment. Business activities have significant environmental implications, since they relate both to the extraction of raw materials for a company's production processes and to the final disposal site of the product at the end of its life cycle. The adoption and implementation of a standard can help an organization manage its environmental responsibilities and assess its environmental performance.
What is ISO 14001?
The need for a comprehensive treatment of environmental issues led to the creation of an Environmental Management System. That is, a set of actions that will lead a company or an organization to the adoption of an environmental policy and the implementation of an environmental program.
ISO 14001: 2015 is an international environmental management system standard that defines the requirements that an organization or business can follow to improve its environmental performance. The application of the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard will enable your company to define its environmental policy, its environmental objectives and targets, taking into account the legislative requirements, as well as the significant environmental impact which will result from these activities.
With this standard your business will manage its environmental responsibilities in a systematic way, and contribute to the environmental pillar of environmental sustainability.
The requirements of the ISO 14001 standard are an integral part of the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme of the European Union (EMAS, EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme).
ISO 14001: 2015 helps an organization achieve the intended results of its environmental management system, which adds value to the environment, the organization and the stakeholders.
The standard can be used by any organization that wants to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste and costs, regardless of its size, type or nature.
This includes high and low risk companies, manufacturing and processing industries, organizations and service providers including local governments, product/equipment manufacturers and their suppliers, etc.
The standard can be used by organizations in any country.
