The aim of ISO 14001 is to help you continually improve your environmental performance and comply with any industry legislation and regulations.
It does this by giving you the framework for an effective Environmental Management System (EMS).
While the ISO framework will help you measure and understand how your activities impact the environment, it won’t tell you how to reduce that impact. You’ll need to do the work on that yourself.
However, even though having an EMS doesn’t guarantee carbon neutrality, it does give you a strategy tool that, if utilised effectively, can help you achieve it.
