ISO 14001: 2015 Foundation

An introduction to environmental management systems based on the requirements of the ISO 14001:2015 standard, as well as how this standard can be utilised to create and enhance an environmental management system, will be covered in this one-day awareness workshop. Environmental management may have formerly been considered a luxury that some businesses could not afford, but times have changed. Environmental protection laws have become more prevalent, and many clients regard environmental performance as a major deciding factor when granting contracts. This indicates that an organised strategy for environmental management can frequently make sound business and financial sense.


All decision-makers and managers need to be aware of the foundational principles and realistic implementation needs of a successful Environmental Management System (EMS). This training will also be very helpful for environmental managers or other individuals who are in charge of maintaining an existing EMS to a recognised level. Those who need an introduction to environmental management or who want to enrol in the registered 2-day auditor training without having used environmental management systems before may find it valuable as well.
