Environmental Consulting and Training Solutions

 

Being conscious about the environmental impact of your business is a key element to not only being competitive in today’s market, but also being relevant. Many businesses have unique and innovative solutions to their impact on the environment, which also serve as selling points for them. We offer environmental consulting and training solutions for your business that are based on the stipulations of the according ISO standards. Therefore, you can become more relevant in the modern market, comply with international standards in accordance to environmental issues, and take your business to a new level of competitiveness when choosing our solutions.

 

The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) has set forth a selection of internationally agreed upon standards that provide structured ways for doing business efficiently and effectively. By complying to these standards, your business will have the competitive edge over other businesses that do not see the value of complying with various ISO standards. Your business can also be certified to confirm such compliance, which will validate that your business can compete on an international level. These are merely the basic benefits of getting your business aligned with ISO standards, and this is where we come into the picture. A solid environmental management system is a very important aspect of any business, no matter the industry, size, or location.

 

The Basics of ISO 14001:2015

 

The ISO 14001:2015 standard is a part of the ISO 14000 series of international standards. It sets out the requirements for a business’s Environmental Management System (EMS), giving you a clear picture of what is expected from such a system. Although it does not stipulate environmental performance requirements, it offers a sound and trustworthy framework to develop such a system for your business. It also highlights the necessary requirements to meet the organisation’s environmental performance goals. This standard is applicable to businesses of any size. It is also not limited to specific industries, which means that any business can adopt this standard and reap the benefits from being more conscious about their impact on the environment around them.

 

Many businesses are under the impression that they don’t need ISO compliance or certification to be successful. No matter their opinion, there are several reasons for your business to become ISO 14001:2015 compliant and certified. First, it will assure the people that are involved in your business, and potential new customers, investors, and business partners, that your business is taking the necessary steps to ensure that your environmental management system is in place and fully functional. This gives them the peace of mind that your business is environmentally conscious and has taken the necessary steps to reduce its negative effects. This will also improve cost management and operation efficiency for your business accordingly. Such a system can be integrated into existing management functions to allow the business to achieve their economic and environmental objectives and performance efficiency more easily.

 

Our consultants can assist your business to implement an EMS that complies with the requirements of the ISO 14001:2015 standard and its relevant statutory regulations. By doing an assessment of your business’s current environmental and quality management systems, we can compare them with the relevant ISO requirements and start working from there. Specific elements will be addressed through the process of developing and implementing such a system for your business. This includes the involvement of people who play pivotal roles in your business, as well as ongoing communications regarding the processes that lead to compliance and establishing different roles and responsibilities in your business accordingly.

 

We provide the necessary training in accordance to the ISO 14001:2015 standard throughout this process, which includes internal auditing processes as well. Therefore, your business will be able to maintain, audit, and improve your EMS to ensure that it complies with the requirements of the ISO 14001:2015 standard internally, once everything is in place and the training has concluded. This will equip your business to reach new heights and attract more potential opportunities on an international level. Therefore, compliance with the ISO 14001:2015 standard will deliver more than just a functioning EMS for your business.
