Environmental Management System EMS – ISO 14001:2004


Overview of Scheme

An Environmental Management System (EMS) based on ISO 14001:2004 provides the essential framework to identify and manage processes with potential impacts on the environment and ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

ISO 14001:2004 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system which provides assurance to employees, customers and stakeholders that the organisation’s environmental performance is being measured and improved. A properly established EMS delivers wide-ranging benefits including savings in waste management, in the consumption of energy and materials, and an improved corporate image.

Independent verification of your organisation’s Environmental Management System by our qualified and experienced auditors will not only ensure greater efficiencies and awareness within your business but will also assure your clients and consumers that you are committed and responsible towards the environment.
