What is the ISO 14001 standard?
ISO 14001 was developed primarily to assist companies with a framework for better management control to reduce their environmental impacts. It applies to various industries, including aerospace and defense, automotive, consumer packaged goods, general manufacturing, hi-tech, and life sciences. It can be used by any organization that wants to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste, and drive down costs. ISO 14001 focuses on:
- The process of how a product is produced rather than the product itself.
- Compliance with federal, state, and local regulations to maintain a license to operate.
- Monitoring air, water, waste, and hazards and recording any near misses or incidents.
- Managing operational risks and the impact on economic performance and reputation and environmental, safety, and society outcomes.
