Environmental Management System
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system (EMS). It helps organisations improve their environmental performance through the efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.
There are many reasons why an organization should take a strategic approach to improving its environmental performance. ISO 14001 helps Emperor to:
Demonstrate compliance with current and future statutory and regulatory requirements
Increase leadership involvement and engagement of employees
Improve company reputation and the confidence of stakeholders through strategic communication
Achieve strategic business aims by incorporating environmental issues into business management
Provide a competitive and financial advantage through improved efficiencies and reduced costs
Encourage better environmental performance of suppliers by integrating them into the organisation’s business systems.
