ISO 14001:2015 specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organization can use to enhance its environmental performance.

ISO 14001:2015 helps an organization achieve the intended outcomes of its environmental management system, which provide value for the environment, the organization itself and interested parties. Consistent with the organization’s environmental policy, the intended outcomes of an environmental management system include:

  • enhancement of environmental performance;
  • fulfilment of compliance obligations;
  • achievement of environmental objectives.

ISO 14001:2015 is applicable to any organization, regardless of size, type and nature, and applies to the environmental aspects of its activities, products and services that the organization determines it can either control or influence considering a lifecycle perspective. ISO 14001:2015 does not state specific environmental performance criteria.

What is an ISO 14001 Environmental Management system?

The ISO 14001 is a standard developed by the international organisation for Standardization so as to give corporations and other organisations a system – the Environmental Management System – that will enable them to produce their commodities and dispense of their services without harming the environment in the process. What the ISO 14001 EMS does is that it will create a framework that is adhering to the several demands of the customers to be more eco-friendly and meet the legal and regulatory requirements all the while producing grade quality products.

An ISO 14001 Certification is one that will require the organisation to implement a series of measures that will bring about change in its core processes. All the process that have a direct impact on the environment, such as the manufacturing and service delivery, will come under its purview as well as some unregulated activities.

I am certified to ISO 14001:2004. What does this mean for me?

Organizations are granted a three year transition period once the revision has been published to migrate to the new edition of the standard, After this period if third-party certification is desired, you will have to seek certification to the new version.


ISO 14001 Certification to the ISO 14001 standard is optional for organizations. The ISO 14001 is specifically created so that organizations can install checks within themselves while not compromising production efficiency.
