An effective Environmental Management System minimises an organisation’s environmental impacts, whilst at the same time reduces waste, manages resources and reduces an organisation’s costs. It provides a robust framework and a structured approach to managing all environmental issues, by setting targets and objectives to help deliver continuous environmental and business improvement.
ISO 14001 is the world’s leading Environmental Management System standard, providing a popular platform for the development and maintenance of a suitably effective EMS.
Bywater provides ISO 14001 Consultancy and Training Services to organisations of all sizes and across all industries. We can support your environmental management objectives through a variety of ISO 14001 Consultancy Services including:
EMS (ISO 14001) Review and Gap Analysis
If you have been given the task of implementing an Environmental Management System, with or without ISO 14001 certification, or wish to integrate environmental management with an existing Quality Management System, we can assess your current processes, procedures and documentation and benchmark these against good practice and your aspirations. Through providing objective, impartial advice we can help you decide on your EMS goals and the steps you need to take to reach them.
ISO 14001 EMS Design and Implementation
Bywater can assist in all aspects of the design and implementation of your EMS by:
- Aligning your EMS objectives with those of your organisation
- Selecting and up-skilling personnel to lead EMS implementation
- Identification and documentation of your environmental procedures into an Environmental Manual
- Identification of the appropriate certification body for your organisation
- Development of your EMS certification body submission documentation (e.g. ISO 14001)
- Advising on the softer aspects of EMS implementation to ensure effective stakeholder communication and buy-in
Our consultants can either conduct these tasks on your behalf, or provide you with the necessary guidance and support to deliver and implement a robust system.
