What is ISO 14001?
ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised standard for Environmental Management. It is implemented in companies to enhance your company’s environmental performance and implement more eco-friendly processes.
4 out of 5 people say they are more likely to buy from a company who have a positive approach to their environmental performance. As global warming is increasing and evidently becoming worse, more people are reducing their carbon footprint, and, turning to more eco-friendly companies is a perfect way to do this. We are watching the world is becoming more and more polluted; therefore, people are now more inclined to save the environment meaning they are more likely to buy from greener companies.
Becoming a greener company means that you can save money after you implement new rules and regulations. For example, think about how much paper your company uses in the office, think about how many trees that is and think how much of an effect that has on our environment. We are in a modern society and many things can be shared and stored online. Using cloud systems and files online means that your company can print less and using less paper will mean you are spending much less in the long run.
Following Government Legislation
ISO 14001 also ensures that your company is being compliant with government legislations. As of the 1st of April 2022, the UK Plastic Packaging Tax has been implemented to encourage companies to use recycled materials. Following this legislation will mean that your company will use more recycled plastics to save money on costly taxes. Using recycled materials creates fewer carbon emissions, creating less damage to the ozone layer.
