ISO 14001 - TMC

ISO 14001:2015


Environment Management System

ISO 14001:2015 calls on organisations to proactively manage their environmental impact through a commitment to pollution prevention, legal compliance, and continual improvement. Environmental Management System certification to the ISO 14001:2015 standard helps organisations demonstrate an ongoing commitment to improving environmental performance. The standard has been subject to a comprehensive rewrite to ensure that its aims and purpose, support the changing needs of today’s world and reflect the increasingly complex environment in which organisations operate.


Certification from a globally recognized brand like TMC gives customers, employees, and stakeholders added confidence that environmental performance improvement is an organizational priority.

    • ISO 14001 certification can help you comply with legal requirements by providing a systematic approach to identifying and addressing current and future legislation.
    • ISO 14001 can help to manage and improve performance in key areas such as energy usage, waste reduction and sourcing of raw materials – reducing the likelihood of clean-ups, litigation and associated reputational damage.  Certification demonstrates that environmental risks are being managed, and improvements against specific targets are always being made.
    • Being independently assessed against ISO 14001:2015 increases your credibility and provides a competitive edge over non-certified businesses when competing for business. 
    • By promoting continual improvement against environmental objectives, ISO 14001 can help drive more efficient use of raw materials and enhanced performance, leading to cost reductions. 
    • ISO 14001 follows the Annex SL framework, the high-level structure for modern ISO Standards. The Annex SL structure ensures consistency and compatibility between the different management system standards and allows for a straightforward and harmonised implementation of multiple standards (integrated management systems). ISO 14001 easily integrates with all new and revised ISO management system standards, like ISO 9001, ISO 45001, and ISO 27001.


ISO 14001:2015 follows the Annex SL framework and consists of the following 10 clauses: 

    • Clauses 0 to 3: Introduction, Scope, References, Terms, and Definitions 
    • Clause 4: Context of the organization 
    • Clause 5: Leadership and commitment 
    • Clause 6: Planning for the QMS 
    • Clause 7: Support & resource management 
    • Clause 8: Operational planning and control 
    • Clause 9: Performance evaluation 
    • Clause 10: Improvement actions
