ISO 14001 Webinar: Transition to the new 2015 standard

25-05-2017 Matthew Drane

The ISO 14001 standard has recently been updated and many of you will be looking to transition. In this webinar we explain the key changes and what they mean for your organisation.

ISO 14001 is the most widely used environmental management system in the world. A new edition of the standard was published in 2015 which introduced a range of significant changes, many of which will be new to companies.

The changes have made the standard a much more strategic tool to improve business and environmental performance, so whether you’ve been certified for a while or looking into it for the first time, the new 2015 standard offers a lot.

We recently hosted a webinar about the updated ISO 14001:2015 standard and how to transition. In the webinar, Darren Chadwick, Managing Partner at sustainability strategy consultancy Brite Green looks at the benefits of the new standard, the key changes, and explores what to consider when you’re preparing to be certified to the new standard.
