Developing a customised Sustainability Strategy following ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems) or a Carbon-Zero Strategy following ISO 50001 (Energy Management Systems) is one of our core strengths here at Eco Growth. The strategy (essentially a roadmap) will eventually show the way to carbon zero business activities. Reducing carbon emissions or paying for increasingly expensive carbon credits will soon be a requirement for all business operations. Investing early in a Sustainability Strategy will save money from day 1 due to inherent energy savings and rising cost for energy consumption.
ISO 14001 and ISO 14004 are environmental management standards. They provide practical tools for organisations looking to identify and control their environmental impacts and improve environmental performance. ISO 14001 and ISO 14004 focus on environmental management systems. The other standards in the ISO 14000 family focus on specific environmental aspects such as life cycle analysis, communication and auditing.
Designed for any type of organization, regardless of its size, activity or sector, it can provide assurance to company management, employees, customers and external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved in an standardized and verifiable as well as certifiable way.
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world’s largest developer of international standards and arguably the most recognised internationally. This is why we recommend following ISO standards to a degree that is relevant and meaningful to your business.
