Standard number:BS EN ISO 14001:2015
ISBN:978 0 580 82611 5

This best-selling standard maps out a framework that a company or organization can follow to set up an effective environmental management system (EMS). This includes guidance on establishing policies and objectives.

  • Any organization, large or small, interested in implementing an EMS
  • Environmental/sustainability sector

BS EN ISO 14001 puts environmental management at the heart of an organization’s operations, to help meet environmental regulations and improve efficiency and environmental performance. 

It outlines the most up-to-date specifications for implementing an EMS and the objectives and possible benefits of introducing a system such as helping an organization reduce its environmental impact as well as grow its business.

NOTE: BS EN ISO 14001:2015 can be used with its new sister guidance document, BS EN ISO 14004:2016 - Environmental management systems - General guidelines on implementation which provides practical guidelines on the successful implementation and operation of an EMS.


  • The 2015 update is a major revision to ensure that this hugely popular standard continues to serve organizations and maintain its relevance in today’s market place, while meeting the environmental challenges of the future 
  • The revised standard introduces a new high-level structure of terms, definitions and headings that will be the same across all management systems standards. This should make it easier for users of several standards, for example BS EN ISO 9001 , to integrate their management system standards
