Environmental legislation, supply chain pressure and customer concerns are driving organisations to not only improve environmental performance but to demonstrate improvement and compliance. The internationally recognised ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) is designed for just that purpose.
Businesses of all sizes, from sole traders to large corporations, are certifying to ISO 14001 in order to:
¨ Cut costs and drive efficiency with streamlined processes
¨ Win new business by demonstrating their green credentials
¨ Demonstrate their responsibility to customers, investors and stakeholders
¨ Negotiate lower insurance premiums by ensuring legal compliance
“EMS Easy has helped us cut costs and win tenders, which without it we might not have done!”
Adrian Mitchell, Pre-construction Director, D R Jones
