A practical introduction to environmental management and ISO 14001:2015
Prepared by experts at BM TRADA, Getting started with 14001 Environmental Management Systems Certification is part of the Getting Started series, focusing on best practice and process improvement.

ISO 14001 provides organisations with a framework to protect the environment and respond to changing environmental conditions in balance with socio-economic needs. It defines an environmental management system as 'part of the overall management system, that includes organisational structure, planning activities, responsibilities, practices, procedures, processes, and resources for developing, implementing, achieving and maintaining the environmental policy'.

There are some noticeable differences from the previous standard that are fully explained in this concise guide, including:
o Background to environmental management standards and ISO 14001
o High-level management standards structure (Annex SL)
o Environmental management principles
o Understanding the individual clauses
o Managing the implementation and application of ISO 14001:2015
o Certification choices
