Implement an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS)


An Environmental Management System (EMS) helps an organization address its impact on the environment and managing its environmental regulatory performance. The implementation of an EMS creates the framework for a systematic and cost-effective approach towards improving environmental practices and the reduction of the risk of non-compliance.

By learning how to reduce negative environmental impacts, minimize energy consumption, optimize waste management, and make sustainable procurement choices, organisations and its employees can contribute to reducing operational costs.

Why Should an Individual Attend?

Modern consumers not only expect but demand that organisations conduct their business in a manner that does not have a negative impact on the environment.

Organisations must thus have strategies in place to achieve sustainable development, like saving energy and being more efficient by understanding the environmental issues it creates and the problems caused by pollution and how it can be prevented.

ISO 14001 Environmental Management System training provides the operational structure to really become an environmentally responsible organization. With an Environmental Management System in place, one can show clients/customers how the organisation is identifying, preventing and reducing negative environmental impacts.
