Environmental consciousness has become a worldwide concern, and nowhere is this more evident than the global marketplace. National as well as international markets are demanding a greater respect for the environment. Many industries require environmental management system certification. Certification to ISO 14001 provides a visible commitment to your customers, increasing their confidence in your company and your product. In addition, there are many benefits that may reward ISO 14001 implementation.
• Increased energy efficiency and energy conservation in design,
production, and post-production processes
• Potential reduction in process by-products and wastes
• Greater employee awareness about the impact of their jobs on the environment
• Creation of systematic structure for complying with environmental regulations
• Customer satisfaction and requirement
• Competitive advantage and improved market share
• Improved image with community and environmental groups
ISO 14001 Certification has a positive impact on your bottom line. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Risk Management and Decision Processes Center found that most of the ISO 14001 certificate holders responding to a national survey reported a relatively quick payback time on their investment. The survey data indicate that doing a thorough job up front in identifying environmental aspects and testing them for improvement leads to the bottom-line benefits that organizations expect from certification. Many organizations experienced a two-year financial payback, and some experienced a one-year return. The impact of internal gains in areas such as employee awareness, management awareness, and management involvement in environmental affairs was even greater, indicating that ISO 14001 certification streamlines a facility’s management system to produce long-term benefits.
