The ISO 14001 standard is the most important standard within the ISO 14000 series. ISO 14001 specifies the requirements of an environmental management system (EMS), a systemic approach to handling environmental issues within an organization.

As a result accredited companies see an enhanced reputation, cost savings through waste reduction and energy efficiency and improved risk management.
