What are the goals of ISO 14001?
The organization interacts with the environment as a whole, including its finished product and waste sources.
These products and wastes, which can be classified as solid, liquid and fugitive gases from their activities, spread to the environment and cause pollution. ISO 14001 enables organizations to manage their relationships with the environment. Considering the environmental factor in the design and evaluation of processes is based on two main reasons:
- Social sensitivity of the region where the company is located and the sanctions of central and local governments,
- Economic-political sanctions of the country where the firm is located.
The first reason is based on the view that permanent development can only be achieved through the rational use of natural resources and the utilization of waste in a way that reduces environmental pollution.
The second reason differs, as it includes economic and political dimensions. Political and economic organizations (such as the European Community) can also be the source of sanctions.
While the environmental regulations of central and local governments have an indirect effect on quality management systems, they have a direct effect on environmental management systems. As a result, the applications of environmental management systems in different countries may vary.
ISO 14001 standard has been established to ensure the standardization of environmental management systems. Another environmental standard that is increasing in importance is EMAS. (The European Eco Management and Audit Scheme).
ISO 14001 with its publication, the standard has become demanded by local governments or important customers.
