Environmental Management Systems
To ISO:14001 Certification
Whether you’re aiming for ISO:14001 Certification or not, developing a robust Environmental Management System is an important but often neglected aspect of running a responsible business.
Environmental Management is a huge field with many links into health and safety, facilities and quality management.
The scope of environmental management generally is to minimise the environmental impact that your organisation has on the local and global environment. The depth of this depends entirely on what activities your site/s conduct and the impact these activities have on the environment; these are known as ‘environmental aspects’.
At FutureSure we offer a full range of services to help you maintain or develop your EMS to ISO:14001 standard, whether you decide to go for the certification or not. We help you assess your current systems, sites, procedures, products, training and activities. We then carry out a thorough gap analysis to highlight what your company needs to improve upon.
Using the ISO:14001 standard as the foundation of your EMS whether your organisation decides to go for the accreditation or not, we ensure that your EMS is designed with the standard in mind with suitable sections of the management system to meet the standard:

We carry out COSHH and Environmental Risk Assessments of the site/s to identify risks and develop suitable control measures to mitigate or reduce these risks as far as reasonably practicable.
We conduct SWOT and PESTLE analysis with your organisation’s team leaders and conduct employee consultation surveys to identify risks and opportunities and other aspects that affect the company and it’s employees. These exercises open up communication and identify gaps and concerns within environmental, quality, health and safety and other aspects of the business to help you identify issues, develop controls and ensure continuous improvement.
The scope and depth of your Environmental Management System depends entirely on the size and activities of your company. There isn’t a one size fits all solution, this is an active engagement process and requires commitment from an organisation at all levels to be a success.
