Advantages of ISO 14001

Advantages of ISO 14001 Registration

ISO 14001 registration can improve your organization’s bottom line through improved environmental performance. A properly designed environmental management system (EMS) is a tool which enables an organization to achieve and systematically control its level of environmental performance. The EMS triggers procedural and technological changes that can reduce production costs. The requirement for continuous improvement in environmental impacts drives more productive use of all inputs, including raw materials, energy and labor. Reducing pollution means improved productivity and more efficient use of resources.

Direct benefits derived from implementing an effective EMS include:

  • Material savings through more complete product input processing, substitution, and recycling of by-products and waste
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Reduced material storage costs
  • Reduced costs for emissions, discharges, waste handling, transport and disposal
  • Increased process yields
  • Reduced insurance rates
  • Reduced customer audits
  • Reduced environmental liability
  • Reduced enforcement fines
  • EMS tracking measurables via consistent plan-do-check-review methods

Intangible EMS benefits include:

  • Improved corporate image among regulators, customers and the public
  • Proof of social responsibility
  • Improved employee morale
