The ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) standard is an important tool for companies, in their effort to address their environmental issues and prove their environmental awareness.
Certification according to this standard can be applied to all types of companies, enterprises and organizations regardless of their size and activity (productive, commercial, service).
Many companies consider ISO 14001 certification to be a particularly difficult affair because it is associated with particularly costly investments. The truth is that the (potential) required investments are related only to the fulfillment of the environmental conditions that are connected with the operating license of each company.
Beyond that, targeting and achieving environmental performance primarily has a positive financial impact on the business and secondarily should be treated as a standard requirement.
