ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS)

ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised standard for environmental management, developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

Achieving certification means that your business is committed to environmental sustainability and that your company’s Environmental Management System (EMS) satisfies the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard. The ISO 14001 benefits for an organisation are environmental, operational and economic.

How can ISO 14001 benefit your business?

  • Green credentials – More and more customers are choosing supply partners who are demonstrating their green credentials and managing their environmental impact.
  • Ethics and credibility – As an international environmental management standard, ISO 14001 helps to present your business as ethical and credible in the minds of your customers.
  • Reduce costs – ISO 14001 helps to control energy usage, making your business more carbon efficient. You’ll also save on potential fines and prosecutions for non-compliance.
  • Legislative compliance – Countries all over the world are committed to carbon reduction and legislation governing the environmental impact of businesses.
  • Ensure compliance with the relevant emissions levels.
  • Access new markets – Tenders may state ISO 14001 as a requirement, precluding businesses without the standard from entering. New business partners and stakeholders may also seek reassurance about environmental best practice and sustainability from you.

BBA Associate Consultants

At the BBA, we are aware that not all companies have access to an internal consultant, such as a quality manager, and this is where the BBA’s Associate Consultant Scheme will be of benefit.

The BBA Associate Consultant Scheme (ACS) assists organisations looking to become certified in any of ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and OHSAS 18001.

For a company to become certified for any of the above-mentioned standards, they may need to work with a professional consultant to guide them through the individual requirements and process before applying for a Management System Certification with the BBA.

Finding a BBA Associate Consultant is simple. Simply email us with your company details and location, and provide details of which management system you are looking to be certified in.


Use of one of the BBA Associate Consultants does not imply that the process of Management System Certification will be simpler, easier, faster or less expensive. The list of Associate Consultants is provided for your convenience. It is important that you consider all the available consultants and choose the most appropriate consultant for your organisation’s needs. The BBA does not endorse the competence or performance of the consultants. If you wish to provide feedback on the Associate Consultant Scheme (ACS) please contact us.
