ISO 140001/EMAS

ISO 14001/EMAS

Responsible company looks at its operations not only through the prism of economic profits but also through the prism of its impact on the environment. Particularly significant aspect can be the care for the natural environment. One of the best solutions supporting environmentally-friendly actions is the implementation of ISO 14001 standard and the introduction of the EMAS certification system.

For whom are the ISO 14001 and EMAS?

Both ISO 14001 and EMAS can be implemented independently or used in parallel with other management systems.

The implementation of an Environmental Management System compliant with the PN-EN ISO 14001 standard is intended for all companies, regardless of their size or type of business. The standard has been designed in a way to guide enterprises of any size and from any industry towards a specific goal, which is the improvement of environmental performance.

What is ISO 14001 and EMAS?

The ISO 14001 standard is one of the ISO standards and serves as an environmental management standard. It is the most recognized standard for environmental management systems. Companies worldwide utilize it to efficiently and systematically implement procedures that will improve their environmental performance.

The EcoManagement and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is a voluntary environmental certification system established within the European Union. It allows companies to reduce their impact on the natural environment and cut operational costs. Implementing EMAS concludes with the company’s registration in the EMAS Registry, providing access to supporting tools.

EMAS requires the implementation of ISO 14001 principles and serves as a natural continuation of it. However, EMAS implementation does not mandate having an ISO 14001 certification.
