What is ISO 14001?

By implementing an EMS that meets the requirements of ISO 14001, organizations can enhance their environmental performance, reduce environmental risks and liabilities, and demonstrate their commitment to environmental sustainability to stakeholders such as customers, regulators, and the public.
