Environmental Management System : ISO 14001

Why Environmental Management Systems?

environmental management systems

Human being, as an organic whole is an integral and inseparable part of nature. While pursuing business or an industry, man must care for the environment, which gives him so much. World over, the industries are becoming increasingly concerned about achieving and demonstrating their environmental performance. There are growing compulsions from tough legislations and mounting public pressures. Environmental disasters such as Bhopal tragedy, Chernobyl disaster, acid rain damage, etc. have led to growing public pressures and governments all over the world have started imposing stringent legislations with severe penalties on environmental issues.

Business leaders initially were defensive in adopting Environmental Management Programme but are now convinced to adopt a proactive approach towards environmental issues. Environmental management is part of business risk management and its effective management leads to reduced liability, cost savings, improved finance and insurance access and/or benefits.

The business community has a crucial role to play in achieving sustainable development, a significant expression of which is the ICC Business Charter for Sustainable Development.

ISO 14001

International Standards provide a reference framework, or a common technological language, between suppliers and their customers – which facilitates trade and the transfer of technology. ISO 14001 is an international standard related to Environmental Management Systems (EMS). ISO 14001 is the standard against which companies can set the EMS certification to demonstrate compliance to the requirements.

EMS certification enables organizations to follow a systematic approach in converting environmental challenges into opportunities. Environmental Management can help organizations to approach environmental issues systematically and to integrate environmental care as a normal part of their operations and business strategy.
