No, it is not mandatory to use the process approach with ISO 14001, but you can follow the process approach in the way you manage environmental aspects and impacts. For example, I like to draw the process of managing wastes from generation until leaving the organization, or the process of managing water from sourcing to disposal.

If you develop a register of environmental aspects and impacts it may be useful to have a column to identify the source of the aspect, and the source may be a product, a service or within the scope of a quality system process. This way it is easier to see where to act, to improve environmental performance.
