In an ISO standard context, leadership and commitment to the organisation’s objectives in terms of the applicable standard.

For instance, ISO 14001:2015 requires top management to demonstrate leadership and commitment to the environmental management system, and defines top management as the “person or group of people who directs and controls an organisation at the highest level”.

If the scope of the environmental management system is limited to a particular function or section of the organisation, top management are those who direct and control that particular function or section.
