What is the purpose of iso 14001? ISO 14001 sets out the requirements for an environmental management system (EMS). It helps organizations improve their environmental performance.
After updating your environmental assessment, you have a list of the most significant environmental impacts of your organization. So, it seems logical that a great EMS is a system that improves performance according to those significant environmental impacts. For example, if your organization is an intensive user of energy, or generates a lot of hazardous wastes, good KPI’s are the ones that measure performance on those two areas.
