UNE EN ISO 14001

Companies of all types are increasingly concerned with achieving and demonstrating strong environmental performance by controlling the environmental impact of their activities, products or services, including their Environmental Policy and Objectives. All this in a context of increasingly stringent legislation, development of economic policies and other measures that encourage environmental protection. Moreover, there is a general growth in the concern of all stakeholders regarding environmental issues and sustainable development.

The UNE-EN-ISO 14001:2015 specifies the requirements of an environmental management system that enable an organisation to:

  • Identify and assess the internal and external environmental aspects and impacts of its activity.
  • Identify the needs and expectations of stakeholders.
  • Leading at senior management level.
  • Establish a policy and objectives in line with the environmental aspects identified.
  • Establish operational control over environmental aspects.
  • Taking action to address risks and opportunities.
  • Define environmental requirements for the acquisition of products or services.
  • Monitor documented information.
  • Establish environmental emergency plans.

In 2015 the standard was approved in accordance with the high-level structure which reflects a strategic choice that will apply to all ISO standards thus facilitating their integration.
