We are being bombarded with information about climate change and its potential effects on our environment at the moment and in response most companies have some regard for environmentally friendly practices, but we could do more.
ISO14001 introduces a standard that guides any organisation along best practices for business. The introduction of the standard can bring benefits, both financial and in efficiency:
- Reduction of energy consumption;
- Reduction in waste going to landfill;
- Better control of materials;
- Awareness of chemicals that can interact with the environment;
- Preparation for emergencies and disaster recovery;
- Qualification for some quotes.
The list goes on.
The main beneficiary inevitably will be the planet.
