ISO 14001 is the internationally-recognised standard for environmental management systems.
A company can implement an environmental management system (EMS) in order to minimise the impact of their operations on the world around us.
Once implemented, an EMS may be audited and awarded ISO 14001 certification if it complies with ISO standards.

Does my company need an environmental management system?
Adhering to an ISO 14001-certified EMS is a great way to limit the environmental impact of your organisation.
REQUIREMENTS: In order to achieve ISO 14001 certification, you will need to demonstrate that every part of your organisation is adhering to your EMS and working to achieve continual improvement as regards your environmental impact.
If you're committed to doing as little damage as possible to the world around us, you may wish to consider pursuing digital ISO 14001 certification. Getting certified online reduces carbon emissions because there's no need for auditors to travel to your location.
