What is ISO 14001:2015?

November 28, 2022

ISO 14001:2015 is an internationally recognized environmental management system that makes it easier for organizations to monitor and manage their environmental footprint holistically. The ISO 14001:2015 standard is a framework for organizations to manage and track the environmental impact of their business activities and operations and control those impacts wherever possible. The standard can be used by any organization, whether it is public, private, or non-profit, and allows it to demonstrate its commitment to environmental initiatives and document compliance with regulatory requirements.

Organizations that can demonstrate that their environmental management system encompasses all ISO 14001:2015 requirements can be considered for certification, and after successfully undergoing an audit, can be awarded the certification. An important aspect of ISO 14001:2015 to note is that it does not set environmental impact targets for organizations. Instead, it provides a structure within which organizations can measure and manage their environmental impact and track progress over time.

Why should you choose an ISO 14001:2015-certified supplier?

When an organization holds an ISO 14001:2015 certification, it is globally accepted to have implemented a comprehensive environmental management system in place. Holding this certification demonstrates an organization’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its business activities. The certification indicates that the organization has in place a comprehensive set of policies and procedures to promote sustainable business practices, that have been verified by an independent auditor.

Beyond a commitment to the environment, companies holding an ISO 14001:2015 certification are often considered to be more ethical in their business practices. Compliance with ISO standards requires measurement and documentation of environmental activities. These organizations often extend these activities across other areas of their operations creating a culture of transparency and continuous improvement that benefits both of them and their clients.

Furthermore, suppliers who hold an ISO 14001:2015 certification can demonstrate an objectively verifiable commitment to good corporate citizenship and business ethics. Organizations that engage vendors holding these certifications can trust they are choosing a partner that shares their commitment to corporate social responsibility.
