Proving your responsibility to the
environment

Background

Care for the environment improves the image of your company. At the same time, the
appropriate management of environmental issues contributes positively to economic gain
and increases the competitiveness of the company. Proof of a responsible approach is fast
becoming a key purchasing criterion. Environmentally conscious clients prefer to do
business with like-minded companies, i.e. those who demonstrate their commitment
through internationally recognized standards such as the ISO 14000 series

Benefits to Organization

ISO 14001 is part of a series of international standards applicable to any organization,
anywhere, relating to environmental management. Based on the Plan – Do – Check – Act
cycle, ISO 14001 specifies the most important requirements to identify, control and
monitor the environmental aspects of any organization, and also how to manage and
improve the whole system. Some business benefits are:

o

Customer, investor, public, community assurance by demonstrating commitment

o

Improving cost control through conserving input materials and energy

o

Reducing incidents that result in liability, therefore reduces insurance costs

o

Assisting the attainment of permits and authorizations for local trade.

Checklist of ISO 14001 is attached as Annexure –V
