Growing scrutiny toward industry’s effects on the environment has made conformance with ISO 14001:2004 - a voluntary, internationally recognized Environmental Management Systems
(EMS) standard - more important than ever. As more companies pursue ISO 14001 certification to demonstrate environmental commitment to their customers, shareholders and government agencies, many are discovering the benefits of partnering with Intertek. As one of the first accredited certification bodies, Intertek offers expertise, experience and know-how that no one else can deliver. Your certified EMS can help you reap the benefits of:
Improved overall performance
Your ISO 14001
certified EMS can help make your business more efficient and productive. Lower energy and raw materials use, reductions in waste and pollution, and mitigated risks of accidents and emergency situations translate into greater profitability and productivity.
Expanded market access
Your company’s environmental credibility and commitment to quality are established from day one. It will take less time to demonstrate the effectiveness of your EMS and earn your prospective customers’ trust and confidence, and you’ll enjoy access to markets you might not otherwise penetrate.
Improved corporate image
Your certification demonstrates your company’s commitment to environmental responsibility, fostering improved relationships with the community, shareholders, and governmental and environmental organizations.
While helping you to operate more efficiently and profitably, your ISO 14001
certified EMS can instill additional confidence in shareholders, investors, insurers and your customers - making your business the clear choice in a highly competitive market.
Plus, you can maximize your human and financial resources by using your existing Quality Management System
(QMS) as a basis for your EMS, taking advantage of the synergies between ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
