Who can get certified by ISO 14001?


The ISO 14001 international standard helps companies to control their environmental impact and achieve sustainable growth. It provides organisations with a framework for protecting the environment and responding to changing environmental conditions, in balance with socio-economic needs. 

ISO 14001 is aimed at all companies, regardless of size or the sector of activity to which they belong. It is ideal for companies looking to go beyond legislative compliance, in pursuit of business excellence.
The level of detail and complexity of each environmental management system varies depending on the context of the organization: the type of company, any legal (or non-legal requirements, the nature of its activities, products and services, and any associated environmental impacts.
