Sept. 28, 2012 - PRLog -- ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard that stipulates how one can go about putting an effective Environmental Management System (EMS) in place. The standard is designed to achieve a balance between maintaining profitability of an organisation whilst minimizing environmental impact. ISO 14001 exists to allow organisations to determine those operations that have an adverse effect on the environment and to minimise these impacts.  Thus, the Standard can be used as influential tool for businesses to both enhance their environmental performance, and improve their business efficiency.
There are a number of benefits associated with ISO14001, namely:
•   It is cost effective – reduces utility bills and waste streams.
•   Higher risk control and improved planning.
•   Environmental legislation compliance.
•   Increases awareness of environmental concern amongst employees.
•   Improved corporate image with customers and the public alike.
•   Reduce environmental liability.
•   Not having ISO14001 may be a barrier to working with certain businesses e.g. Government bodies, local authorities and some commercial businesses who will prefer their suppliers to be ISO14001 registered.
