Understanding ISO 14001 : 2015

Course description

Environmental impact is now a key factor in corporate management. From residual materials management to carbon neutrality and the reduction of spill risks of all kinds, ISO 14001 aligns companies with the integration of these elements into a management system. ISO 14001 is the internationally recognized, certifiable standard for implementing an environmental management system (EMS).

This standard is increasingly being demanded by customers/stakeholders, and turning this environmental corner contributes to sustainable development. Through management commitment documented in a policy, the company is able to set objectives, plan them according to the availability of resources, implement them and evaluate its performance in order to improve its environmental performance.

ISO 14001 is harmonized with ISO 9001, in line with the PFVA (PDCA) Deming wheel, and can be easily integrated into a single corporate management system.

The visual support material is highly recognized. It highlights key points, making it easier to understand and retain the information provided. Full documentation is also provided.
