The world’s most-recognized and longest-lived brands are also global leaders in environmental performance. This is no coincidence. Increasingly high customer expectations for corporate responsibility and newly emerging legal and regulatory requirements are the driving factors in today’s business. As such, developing and implementing an Environmental Management System (EMS) in line with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 standard can benefit a company’s financial health, brand value, and environmental performance.
Implementing an Environmental Strategy with ISO 14001
Implementing an ISO 14001 EMS will drive continual improvement of a company’s environmental performance by providing structure, procedures, processes, and management tools. These proven, applied risk management processes encourage partnerships between employees and upper management to incorporate long-term environmental considerations into organization workflows.
Enjoy Brand Growth With An Environmental Strategy
Traditional problems with environmental management in an organization could be identified by a lack of communication and support between staff and in the absence of shared long-term goals. It may seem like your organization can create its own plan without help or direction, but following the ISO 14001 will prevent many of the pitfalls common to environmental management systems by providing structures and processes that will work for you, no matter the size of your company.
The benefits of an ISO 14001 compliant environmental management system manifest throughout a business, from employee engagement to brand growth. Identifying your company’s environmental impact is just a small step to improving your environmental footprint and eventually your company’s overall performance. TUV Rheinland of Asia Pacific can be your partner in this process. We can perform a pre-assessment on your environmental management system prior to the certification audit and help you to identify areas in need of development.
