EQMS underpins compliance with the ISO 14000 Environmental Management standard, protects you from legislative penalties and helps you reduce waste.
Back to top...
"Governments worldwide are encouraging sustainable business and clamping down vigorously on organisations that threaten or damage the environment.
In the European Union this was enshrined in law in 2009 with the Environmental Liability Directive [ELD] 2004/35/EC.
ISO 14000 provides a growing number of companies with a framework to address critical environmental issues, operate legally and implement waste reduction initiatives.
Even if you don’t use an ISO 14000 framework, an environmental awareness is mandatory if you want to avoid penalties, fines and potential closure."
Mike Bendall, Qualsy Director
