Standards to help shape a sustainable future
Businesses everywhere, no matter the industry or size, are making moves to become more environmentally-friendly and are reaping the benefits. With the help of the ISO 14000 family of standards, businesses can put processes in place to decrease their impact on the environment.
However, there are still a number of businesses who are yet to go green. Businesses can often be hesitant to change to more environmentally-friendly processes as they assume that the move will be difficult and expensive. However, it is becoming increasingly important for the success of a business to become a green company.
For companies that require the tools to put in place and manage their environmentally-friendly practices to meet their environmental responsibilities, the ISO 14000 family is here to help.
ENVIRX enables organisations to manage their risk based material environmental impacts in an integrated manner, enabling GRI G4 en standard management and reporting requirements according to the processes defined in the ISO 14001: 2015 standard. ENVIRX uses the same dynamic framework to measure, trend and report on their impact area, i.e. materials, water, energy, biodiversity, effluents and emissions amongst others.
What does the ISO 14000 family do?
These standards set out the requirements for an environmental management system to become ISO certified. It provides a framework for organisations can follow in order to implement an efficient and effective environmental management system. These standards are generic; therefore, they can be applied to any organisation regardless of the industry they belong to or the size of the company. They also help to assure the public, the company stakeholders, employees and management that the environmental impact of the company is being measured and improved.
Standards that fall into the ISO 14000 family focus on specific approaches, for example, audits, life cycle analysis, communications as well as several other approaches that contribute to the environmental impact of the company. These standards help companies to identify environmental challenges that both the company and the world are faced with, therefore allowing the business to take steps to address these challenges.
By complying to the regulations set out in the ISO 14000 family standards, companies can ensure they become ISO certified and therefore, can reap the benefits of this certification.
