Helping global industry to act responsibly!
Demonstrable environmental management is a legal duty incumbent upon today’s businesses, regardless of the industries or geographical locations in which they operate.
The single biggest environmental management standard worldwide, ISO 14001 exists to help businesses and organisations realise and maintain their environmental responsibilities, whilst minimising the ecological impact of their day-to-day processes and procedures. Part of the ISO 14000 family of environmental management standards, ISO 14001 helps your business or organisation to respond positively and proactively to changing environmental conditions, in balance with pressing socio-economic needs.
Similar to the ISO 9000 suite of Quality Management – in that it applies to a business as a whole, rather than to any specific product itself – ISO 14001 provides you with a systematic road map to achieving control and responsibility in this vital area. Moreover, it demonstrates to your customers that you are fully committed to ongoing responsible environmental management. Devised to follow the established ‘Plan-Do-Check-Act’ methodology of the ISO 9001 standard, ISO 14001 consistently encourages and enhances productive communication with all parties concerned including employees, contractors, neighbours and regulatory authorities. Moreover, the basis of ISO 14001 has been used as the groundwork for other Industry-specific standards, such as the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care Management System (RCMS/RC14001).
Turner & Coates is a proven management systems specialist and an experienced provider of high quality consultancy and internal auditing services, designed to help you prepare your business for ISO 14001 certification. A company can only really have one management system that must incorporate all quality, environment, health, safety and financial aspects. With this in mind, we help companies to efficiently integrate their environmental management requirements into their existing management systems, rather than creating separate systems for different standards.
