The ISO 14001: 2015 specifies requirements for the development and implementation of Environmental Management System / EMS.
Through a systematic approach an organization recognizes the impact of its activities on the environment and sets objectives, targets and programs to monitor and reduce these effects. The agency with the implementation of an EMS sets the framework, within which it can continuously improve its performance.
