Why do I need ISO 14001 Certification?
So we are committed to the environment but why do we need Environmental Certification?
Leading companies around the world demonstrate their environmental performance by controlling the impacts of their activities and by their commitment to a certified environmental management system.
It is also widely accepted that stakeholder groups including customers, regulators, community groups and workers have a vested interest in the environmental impacts of companies they work for, trade with or share a community with.
The main reason for Environmental Certification is because of those stakeholders like your customers, regulators and governments want an external independent assessment that your environmental management system is effective and you are managing your environmental impacts.
Certification of your Environmental system is a powerful marketing tool. You have done the hard yards implementing the system so show people your commitment to the communities you work in and the broader environment.
