Why ISO 14001?
ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems provides a framework for business to develop a systematic approach to balancing environmental protection with commercial imperatives. Certification to SIO 14001:2015 is increasingly being demanded by governments and corporations as humans now have the capacity to profoundly change climate, biodiversity, and ecosystems. These organisations are seeking assurance from partners and suppliers that there are adequate governance and assurance arrangements to manage the environmental performance of your products and services. It also allows assurance for the board and the top leadership of the organisation to assure themselves.
What will a well designed EMS do for my business?
The Environmental Management System standard ISO 14011:2015 requires businesses to have an objective means of understanding the environmental impacts and aspects of their business activities including life cycle considerations of products and/or services. A systematic identification of workplace aspects that can impact the environment, selection of controls and/or improvements and the persistent application of those controls and/or improvements. The business also needs to have processes to ensure compliance with legal obligations, respond to incidents, effectively respond to emergencies and learn from mistakes and near misses.
The ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System standard has several mandatory elements of the management framework including:
- Environmental Policy
- Interested Parties
- Business Context
- Actions to address risks and opportunities (aspects, compliance, and planning)
- Documented scope of the system
- Objectives, targets, and programs
- Resources roles and responsibilities
- Documented operational controls were required

Stephen used a no nonsense approach to demystify the minefield of standards and help us to develop our Environmental manual. His approach gained from years of experience helped us achieve our goal of ISO14001 accreditation with minimal impact or demands on the day to day operations of our business.
Thanks very much for a smooth process. The consultation process and subsequent manual identified opportunities for significant improvement in our operations. Our quality manual is simple and made certification process straightforward.
It is important for every company to assess the HSE and Quality Systems, they have in place. For company growth, we sought Stephen’s guidance to attain our ISO9001. With his deep knowledge base and systematic approach, he assisted our company with achieving this certification.
Our largest customer stopped purchasing from us when their new procurement guidelines required suppliers to achieve ISO 9001 certification. Our largest customer was purchasing from us again within six weeks of having engaged Stephen.
With Stephen assisting us in the development and implementation of our quality management system we achieved ISO certification on our first round across every department in the business.
Dear Stephen. Thank you for the excellent support and education you provided to ADEA in preparation for our ISO Certification. You made it relatively easy for us especially as a small NFP without many human resources. We got through the certification process very well, thanks to your guidance and as this was a first for us, the education you provided about the process that included not only what was required but why.
