Created in 1996 by the International Organization for Standardisation, the ISO 14000 family of standards are designed to promote and guide an environmental management approach. ISO14001 is the standard itself, the rest providing guidance for its implementation. Whether certified or not, an EMS based upon ISO14001 is appropriate for any kind of organisation (company, NGOs, union, etc) concerned about improving its system of production, management, and operations as a way to better control its environmental impacts. The guidelines of this norm (that were updated in 2015) can be checked and certified by an accredited organisation.
