Managing environmental impacts – and the effects they are having on business – is a growing imperative for organizations, regardless of size or type. A sound environmental management system (EMS) helps measure and manage environmental factors, making it good not only for business but for society as a whole.


The newly revised ISO 14004:2016, Environmental management systems – General guidelines on implementation, provides organizations with support to help with the implementation of an EMS. It is designed to complement, but is not limited to, ISO 14001, ISO’s standard for environmental management systems.

The new version of ISO 14004 provides organizations with further details and information in relation to the new ISO 14001:2015. Some of the changes include a focus on protecting the environment, environmental performance, life-cycle perspective, leadership and strategic environmental management.
