ISO 14001

Environmental Management

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is the most widely recognised international standard that enables an organisation to demonstrate its environmental commitment to its customers, stakeholders, employees, neighbours and other interested parties in a practical and efficient way.

It enables a business to manage its environmental impacts while ensuring legal compliance, gaining financial benefits and showing commitment to sustainable development.

Forward thinking organisations with ISO 14001 accreditation have an advantage over non-certified competitors particularly at tender stage and when competing for governmental and quasi-governmental contracts.

Certification Process - We have a 100% success rate!

With MQF the certification process is not just about ticking the right boxes to get the certificate. The most important outcome is that you benefit as a business.

MQF advise clients throughout the whole process. We have environmental experts with Masters Degrees in Environmental Management and Environmental Law who have vast experience in ISO 14001 systems.

The time it takes to get certification will depend on the size and complexity of your organisation, but we will set a timetable from the outset.  Having installed numerous ISO systems across a wide range of business sectors since 1991, we know how to manage the process to get you to certification within the right timescales for you.

We will design, document, and implement an Environmental Management System that meets all the requirements of ISO 14001, but more importantly enhances your business and works for you to improve your environmental performance and, in many cases, save you money.

As an integral part of our service we will help you choose the right UKAS accredited Certification Body for your business, and will guide you through the whole certification process. Our work is not complete until you gain certification.
