Environmental Management Systems Under New ISO 14001: Your Roadmap to Compliance -

Webinar now available On-Demand.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the organization that oversees ISO 14001, released ISO 14001:2015 at the end of last year. Since the inception of ISO 14001, over 300,000 companies have implemented it worldwide. So, when changes to the standard for environmental management systems (EMS) occur, the impact is significant.

These updates allow companies to better integrate other programs and better respond to core business objectives. The changes will also occur in both the structure and the content of the standard.

Structural changes follow the new Annex SL, which is intended to provide a single high-level structure and common text that will apply to all ISO management system standards. The look and feel of ISO 14001:2015 is therefore different, but the common format, structure and core requirements will promote a true management system approach with alignment and integration with other standards such as ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 27001 (information security) and ISO 50001 (energy). This enables better integration into an organization’s overall strategy, rather than management of a series of“bolt on” systems.

Changes to the standard link the EHS role to sustainability and reflect changing responsibilities. The new standard supports environmental risk management as a core business objective and will therefore affect cross-functional segments of the organization, including environmental managers, supply chain professionals, and business leaders.

Use this on-demand webinar as Karen Lutz teaches a comprehensive overview of the changes and cost-effective strategies for updating an existing EMS or preparing an EMS that is certifiable to ISO 14001:2015.

Ms. Lutz will review key sustainability concepts incorporated into the standard, with emphasis on using a systems approach to link a compliance foundation with the challenges and opportunities of a sustainable business. And we'll review connections to other sustainability management standards (e.g., draft ISO 45001 Health and Safety, ISO 26000 Social Responsibility, ISO 50001 Energy Management), to emphasize benefits of an integrated approach.

You’ll learn: 

  • The ISO 14001 process as it relates to your organization 
  • Other evolving management system standards and the linkages to sustainability 
  • Structural revisions to ISO 14001 and benefits for systems integration 
  • Content revisions to ISO 14001 and integration of sustainability concepts and objectives 
  • First steps in transitioning an EMS system to ISO 14001:2015 
  • How to leverage business value from the 14001:2015 EMS 
  • How other companies have successfully completed the ISO 14001 process 
  • Strategies for working closely with your certifying organizations 
  • How the new requirements impact organizations 
  • Resources to assist in updating your existing ISO 14001 environmental management system or implementing an EMS that is certifiable to the ISO 14001:2015 requirements
