Revised ISO 14001 Standard saves companies thousands
As reported yesterday, the publication of the newly revised International Standard ISO 14001 will help organisations respond to global sustainability challenges and ensure long-term business success.
According to Sue Gregson, Environmental Consultant at International Workplace:
“The benefits to business of implementing an Environmental Management System are clearly reflected in IEMA’s recent survey results, with nearly 60% of respondents reporting savings of over £10,000, and nearly 30% reporting savings of over £100,000 since putting the system in place. This is in addition to the business opportunities generated.
“By putting environmental issues at the heart of business strategy there is little doubt that the revised Standard will improve business’s resilience to environmental threats from such issues as resource availability and climate change, while enhancing the potential for an organisation to capitalise on business opportunities presented. This can only be good news for the UK economy.”
